While ginger root capsules are considered safe in small doses over a short period of time (3 to 5 grams for up to four days), there are no known side effects to either a mother or a fetus during this time. Short periods of rest from taking ginger root is recommended if using ginger root to allay the symptoms of nausea and vomiting.Is ground ginger as beneficial as fresh ginger?
Ground ginger is more widely available and convenient to use than the fresh root, but has lower levels of gingerol. In addition, a study published in the German journal "Nahrung" in 2000 found ground ginger that was irradiated -- a technique to destroy microbes in foods -- lost as much as 70 percent of its gingerol.
