Long known for its digestive benefits, new research shows ginger may help asthma sufferers breathe easier. Grown in Jamaica, China, and India, ginger can be found everywhere — on street-side tables in New York City or in aisle 7 of the grocery store. Since Roman times, the spice has peppered food dishes sweet and savory, and pairs well with fruits and vegetables, meats, rice, and even chocolate. Now, researchers from Columbia University's department of anesthesiology say ginger may pair well with bronchodilating medications in relaxing the smooth muscle surrounding airways, which constrict and make breathing difficult during an asthma attack.
