Function #2: Ginger has been shown to have anti-nausea effects.

Serotonin is known to stimulate nausea as one of its core physiological functions; increased production of serotonin, therefore, can potentially lead to feeling nauseated. There is significant clinical evidence that shows that ginger can be effective for preventing and curbing nausea.
