Interestingly, ginger itself is as old as the recorded history of man. A native to southern Asian and India, it is spoken of in the Jewish Talmud, written about by Marco Polo, and even recommended by Henry VIII as a remedy against the plague.

Ginger is not actually a root, but it rather a rhizome of the plant Zingiber officinale, meaning it is the thick, fleshy sub-stem of the plant from which the roots grow. It has long been a staple of traditional Asian culture, used in an array of cuisines, wellness practices and made into the popular ginger tea.
