Ginger Pastilles is promoted as candy but may also be used for nausea, as well as common cold symptoms, thanks to the medicinal uses of ginger. The formula was developed by St. Claire’s Organics.

St. Claire’s Organics is a manufacturer of organic candy from the United States. The company has several product lines, such as peppermints, organic sweets, cocoa mix, organic tarts, as well as aromatherapy pastilles. The company promotes the importance of consuming only organic products that are allergen-free. Therefore their formulas are 100% vegan and do not contain allergens such as dairy, eggs, gluten, etc. Moreover, St. Claire’s Organics also believes in the importance of medicinal plants and folk medicine, thus it supports a non-profit organization by donating them part of its net profit in order to lend a hand in preserving the herbal knowledge of indigenous cultures.

St. Claire’s Organics promotes Ginger Pastilles as an organic candy with spicy natural flavoring. In addition, it is based entirely on organic ingredients. The producer also mentions that Ginger Pastilles is not an important source of calories from saturated fat and dietary fiber or vitamins A, C, iron, and calcium. There are not any indications as to who should use the pastilles on the manufacturer’s site, nonetheless ginger is quite safe and has been used for a long time as a spice, in sweets and as a medicinal herb.


1) Ginger Pastilles Quick Facts

Ginger Pastilles by St. Claire’s Organics is based on ginger which is used as both a medicinal herb, but also for culinary purposes (ginger ale, dipping sauces, and pickled ginger). As a medicinal herb, ginger is primarily known for alleviating symptoms of nausea and vomiting associated with motion sickness, chemotherapy, pregnancy, and also common cold symptoms. It may also improve digestion, based on anecdotal evidence and laboratory tests. Scientists have concluded that ginger might help with vomiting and nausea in certain cases. Moreover, ginger may decrease blood sugar levels (thus interacting with diabetes medication) and help against blood clots (consequently it could interfere with blood thinning medicine). Ginger is generally considered safe although some people have reported mild symptoms of heartburn or headaches.

Ginger has been used for a long time in the kitchen as a spice and also as a medicinal plant. According to traditional medicine, ginger may treat nausea and vomiting, while helping digestion. It is sometimes used as a remedy for cold and influenza. According to scientific research, ginger may treat pregnancy-related nausea and nausea symptoms that patients experience after chemotherapy sessions. Also, it might help prevent blood clotting, but further research needs to be done. Among side effects, some people have complained about gas, heartburn and bloating. Ginger seems to interact with blood thinners, diabetes medication, and blood pressure drugs. Also, it might interact with herbs that act as an anticoagulant, such as turmeric and garlic.

The Ginger Pastilles formula has not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. The producer sells them as organic sweets and does not list any side effects on its website. St. Claire’s Organics advises customers to take two pastilles per serving (they have 1.78 g), but it does not provide details on the number of daily servings.

  • Very prone to disintegrate into a lot of white dust.

6) Ginger Pastilles Cost

The product is sold in tins of 1.5 oz which contain about 54 pastilles. The producer does not mention the number of daily servings, but if you take one serving per day, then one tin is enough for almost one month. The average cost for one month’s supply would recommend it as an inexpensive product. Even if you take four pastilles daily, Ginger Pastilles has an appealing price.

You can purchase the product online from St. Claire’s Organics website. They also offer affordable shipping charges. You can also order the formula from various online retailers, mostly as some of them offer discounts. It is also possible for you to buy packs of six Ginger Pastilles tins in some online stores.

One serving contains 1.5g of sugars and 6 calories. The manufacturer does not say anything about the maximum number of daily servings.


8) Our Verdict on Ginger Pastilles

St. Claire’s Organics recommends Ginger Pastilles as herbal sweets for anyone who enjoys their spicy taste. As ginger is not only a culinary herb but also a medicinal one, the pastilles may also help you with digestion problems, nausea, vomiting, and symptoms of common cold. People who have used this formula have had mixed opinions especially when it comes to the Ginger Pastilles taste. However, there are not so many consumer testimonials over the Internet. Since the product is quite inexpensive and easily available online, we believe it deserves at least a try. However, as ginger interacts with some drugs, you should consult your doctor before use if you are currently taking medicine.
