Hi Enigma - how are you these days?  You're fine I hope. I haven't been around here for a bit now.  You appear to be holding up the room by yourself.  Thank you for your posts on ginger and cinnamon, both are welcome.  Stay well enigma.

Ginger is known to be effective in curing digestive system disorders. 

Ginger has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. It helps with nausea, morning sickness, vomiting and stomach-ache.

It is used to cure colds, cough, respiratory problems and arthritis.

The warming effect of Ginger promotes blood circulation.

It may also help in coronary artery disease and other heart problems.

Essential oil of Cinnamon has anti-coagulating, anti-microbial and antioxidant properties. It can also work as an effective insect repellent.

Cinnamon may significantly help people with type 2 diabetes improve their ability to respond to insulin, thus normalizing their blood sugar levels.

Inhaling the warm, spicy and sweet scent of this spice is believed to boost brain activity.

Traditionally, Cinnamon is considered as a warming remedy to help alleviate colds, cough and flu.

Ginger tea is always easy to make; use it to heal a sore throat or indigestion.

Many herbs brought from the Old World naturalized themselves to become common weeds in the New. Our roadsides and waste places would have looked very different before the explorers, conquistadors, pilgrims and other colonists arrived.

Transplant shock generally happens due to damage caused to the roots. Absorption of water and nutrients occur with help of tiny hair of thin roots which lie far away from the root ball. While transplanting root hair get damaged either due to uprooting of the crop or simply by drying out.
