Ginger may help with nausea and other conditions, but how do you know which product is best and the right amount to take? To help, we 1) purchased and rigorously tested more than a dozen ginger products  to determine their strength and purity, and 2) reviewed the clinical studies conducted with ginger powders and extracts.

What we found may surprise you -- and can surely guide you: Half of the products we selected for testing failed to meet our criteria for top-quality ginger. We tested for amounts of key ginger compounds called gingerols and discovered, for example, that one product contained only 6% of what was expected from its label and another had only 62% of its listed amount. We could tell just by weighing the contents of another product that that it didn't have all the ginger it claimed.

Among the products which passed our tests, we looked at which provided the best value. We discovered that you could spend as little as 2 cents or more than 40 cents to get a similar dose of ginger compounds.

In this comprehensive review of ginger supplements and ales, you'll get test results and quality ratings for 14 supplements (including one which passed our voluntary Quality Certification Program), as well as information about a supplement similar to one which was tested. You'll discover:   

  • Which ginger supplements and ales passed or failed ConsumerLab.com's testing and review
  • Which ginger supplements are the best value and our Top Picks
  • The evidence regarding the use of ginger for preventing nausea and vomiting, reducing of arthritis and migraine headache, and treating diabetes 
  • The dosage of ginger for different applications and the related clinical evidence
  • Potential side effects and drug interactions with ginger
