What's so special about ginger? If you're into cholesterol-friendly cooking, try adding ginger. This herb adds a combination of spice and/or citrus-like flavor to meats, breads and vegetables without increasing the fat, cholesterol or sodium content of the food. In addition, preliminary tests suggest that ginger may help protect against high cholesterol.
Plus, my own two cents-worth, ginger is widely recognized as having a calming effect on nausea. Oh, and for the purists, I'm pretty sure ginger is considered a root not an herb as described above!
Have a happy, healthy day!
