Ginger extract may be a great treatment option for migraine sufferers

This study took place in a hospital emergency room, where 60 people with lower-frequency migraines were admitted for intravenous treatment with the NSAID ketoprofen, plus either a placebo or 400 mg of ginger extract.

Participants kept track of their symptoms from the time they arrived at the ER, and each half-hour after treatment, through two hours.

Beginning at one hour after treatment and continuing through two hours, compared to ketoprofen plus placebo, those taking ketoprofen plus ginger reported significantly lower levels of migraine pain, fewer visual symptoms, were better able to function physically and mentally and said they were happier with their treatment.
