Ginger Syrup Review
Ginger Syrup is an herbal liquid formula which can be used against motion sickness, nausea but also in order to alleviate cold and flu symptoms such as coughs and sore throat. The company behind this product is Terra Firma Botanicals.
Terra Firma Botanicals is a company based in Oregon, USA specialized in manufacturing and selling a wide variety of herbal formulations based on herbs with a long tradition in folk medicine. The plants used in the composition of tinctures, syrups and oils are ethically harvested. Terra Firma Botanicals, although established about 30 years ago is still a small company. One of the reasons behind this is that the founder’s strategy has been to focus on product quality and good customer service instead of aggressively gaining market share. Products can be ordered online as well as offline. However, the formulas can be bought from retail stores in only eight states (Oregon, Washington, California, Colorado, Tennessee, Montana, New York and Texas). Therefore, we believe that Terra Firma Botanicals may not be very well known at national level.
According to the manufacturer, Ginger Syrup contains organically grown and fresh ginger root extract. It should help people experiencing cold and flu symptoms or individuals travelling, as it is also recommended against motion sickness. Aimed mostly at adults, this product should also be suitable for children, although a medical professional should be consulted beforehand.

It is a popular herbal remedy against stomach ailments, such as vomiting and nausea. Moreover, the Chinese people have also been using it in teas against cold symptoms. People have also been considering ginger as a good remedy against inflammation and pain.
Specialists have discovered that ginger does contain some substances that regulate pain hormones. Moreover, clinical trials on humans have revealed that ginger is effective in reducing nausea in pregnant women and in patients undergoing chemotherapy. It can also reduce vomiting and cold sweat caused by motion sickness. There are not so many studies on whether ginger works well against cold symptoms. Adverse side effects are rare and include mild heartburn and irritation of the mouth. It may interact with blood thinners and diabetes medication.

Ginger Syrup is a dietary supplement based on organic ginger root, a medicinal herb used for hundreds of years in traditional medicine. In addition, the effectiveness of the product may also be sustained by the fact that scientists have shown that ginger helps to treat motion sickness, one of main the ailment claims of Ginger Syrup. In our view, the role of ginger in treating cold symptoms is still not so well documented by scientists thus its efficacy in this area may still be questionable. The product has positive customer testimonials, although they are not so many. As dietary supplements do not require approval by the FDA, the manufacturing quality of Ginger Syrup cannot be guaranteed.
