Nausea and Vomiting (N/V) are unpalatable manifestations seen commonly during pregnancy, which impinge upon the overall well-being, the productivity and might result in hospitalization. There is growing evidence concerning the efficacy of ginger in alleviating Nausea and Vomiting in Pregnancy (NVP). Therefore, we sought to conduct a systematic review to explore the effectiveness of ginger for NVP. A comprehensive search was conducted in Google Scholar, PubMed, and Science Direct which resulted in identifying five studies. These studies showed that ginger can improve NVP in a statistically significant manner (P< 0.05). Assessing the safety profile of this agent was difficult due to the short duration of intervention, and inconsistency in the dose and dosage form of ginger used. This study helped to glean evidence about the efficacy of ginger in NVP. It also emphasized the need for conducting more studies with a better quality and that are using standardized dose and dosage forms to be able to conduct a meta-analysis.
