This plant was exported to Europe from India during the first century AD and its application was recognized as cooking in the thirteenth century. China and India were the first countries that used the medicinal properties of ginger. Sanskrit texts refer to the medicinal properties of this plant and in China it used to treat indigestion, diarrhea and nausea, as well as treat arthritis, colitis and heart disease.
