As a medicinal herb, ginger is primarily known for alleviating symptoms of nausea and vomiting associated with motion sickness, chemotherapy, pregnancy, and also common cold symptoms. It may also improve digestion, based on anecdotal evidence and laboratory tests. Scientists have concluded that ginger might help with vomiting and nausea in certain cases. Moreover, ginger may decrease blood sugar levels (thus interacting with diabetes medication) and help against blood clots (consequently it could interfere with blood thinning medicine). Ginger is generally considered safe although some people have reported mild symptoms of heartburn or headaches.

St. Claire’s Organics recommends servings of two pastilles, therefore one tin of some 54 pastilles should be enough for 27 days if you have only one daily serving. One serving contains 1.5g of sugars and 6 calories. The manufacturer does not say anything about the maximum number of daily servings.
- A tin of about 54 pastilles costs around $2.5-$3.5 (retailers offer discounts), which would recommend it as a cheap product
- It is available in many online stores
- Shipping charges are affordable
- Some customers may not like how the pastilles taste, based on some online consumer reviews
- Ginger may interact with other drugs, such as diabetes, blood thinning and blood pressure medication
St. Claire’s Organics recommends Ginger Pastilles as herbal sweets for anyone who enjoys their spicy taste. As ginger is not only a culinary herb but also a medicinal one, the pastilles may also help you with digestion problems, nausea, vomiting, and symptoms of common cold. People who have used this formula have had mixed opinions especially when it comes to the Ginger Pastilles taste. However, there are not so many consumer testimonials over the Internet. Since the product is quite inexpensive and easily available online, we believe it deserves at least a try. However, as ginger interacts with some drugs, you should consult your doctor before use if you are currently taking medicine.
