The powerful antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties of ginger make it particularly useful when trying to break or reduce a fever. The active ingredient of ginger, gingerol, is known to behave like an antioxidant, seeking out areas of oxidative stress and generally helping the immune system function more efficiently. In this way, ginger can help reduce the fever and also heal the infection that is causing the fever in the first place. Ginger root tea is a popular means of consuming this powerful herb, although ginger supplements or raw varieties are also available.
