"Try a couple of ginger biscuits," "I swore by ginger tea," we've all heard the old wives' tale that a little ginger can help the symptoms of morning sickness, well a new study proves this to be the case.

It involved 508 women in total (256 who received ginger and 252 who used placebos) and found that with those who used ginger (on average around 1g a day) for at least four days saw a five-fold likelihood of improvement in NVEP.

The researchers concluded that their data suggests ginger is an effective non-pharmacological treatment for NVEP. They were however also quick to point out that the safety of using ginger whilst pregnant is still unknown.
