The Science Behind the Product

The Scientifically Proven Solution
Ginger is the secret to motion comfort. For thousands of years, ginger has been used in Traditional Chinese Medicine, and as a folk remedy by ancient cultures in Africa, Asia, Mexico, and Greece, to treat nausea and vomiting. Modern studies have proven these traditions have a scientific basis. In numerous studies in countries around the world, ginger has been shown not only to work for motion comfort, but to work better than the alternatives, including over-the-counter medications, and without side effects.

Sailors’ Secret is used daily by sailors, divers, fishermen, pilots, and passengers of cruise ships, tour boats, airlines, trains, buses and automobiles—everywhere motion comfort is an issue.

Did you know that Danish researchers gave ginger to naval cadets and concluded that ginger reduces nausea, vomiting, and cold sweats while on the high seas, with no side effects? In a 1982 study, Mowery and Clayson showed powdered Ginger root to be effective in treating motion sickness. In their study, 940mg of ginger was shown to be far superior to 100mg of Dramamine and a placebo in relieving the symptoms of nausea and vomiting. [Mowrey DB, Clayson DE. Motion sickness, ginger, and psychophysics. Lancet 1982; 53: 655-657.]

While the United States Food and Drug Administration has not evaluated Sailors’ Secret, and our product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease, ginger has been confirmed by other governments as having medicinal properties. For example, Germany’s equivalent of the FDA, along with the governments of Switzerland, Austria, and Finland, approve of ginger as a nonprescription treatment for motion sickness.

So now that you know ginger is the solution, we want to share with you why Sailors’ Secret premium ginger capsules are the most highly regarded and are often the only brand of ginger capsules offered at sailing clubs and on cruise ships.

The Best Quality Ginger 
It matters where the ginger comes from, since the natural properties of ginger grown in different parts of the world vary greatly by region and plant variety (like coffee beans vary, for example). Major world producers include Fiji, India, Jamaica, Nigeria, Sierra Leone, and China. Sailors’ Secret only uses the highest quality premium ginger, sourced from the best ginger plants in the world, with the right balance of properties that are scientifically proven to support motion comfort.

The Right Way to Process Ginger
Did you know that many methods of commercially processing the ginger plant remove the essential properties you need (such as a primary component called gingerol), rendering it useless for helping you with motion comfort? We don’t want you buying a product that is technically “ginger” but doesn’t have any of the underlying properties you’re taking it for. That’s why Sailors’ Secret not only uses premium ginger, we also make sure we process it in a way that it retains as much of its original properties as it possibly can.

The Right Amount of Ginger
So why not just eat a raw piece of ginger root then? Well, because you have to take the right amount of ginger. If you wanted to go to the source and eat fresh ginger root, to get the amount you need for motion comfort on a day cruise, you’d have to eat about a half-pound of it!

Okay, so bringing a giant ginger root to gnaw on is out. Why not get something ginger-flavored that’s fun to eat? Here’s why. Most commercial ginger products don’t have enough ginger to make a difference for motion comfort; you’d have to eat a room full of some types of ginger-flavored products like chews, gums, candy, or drinks in order to get the motion comfort effect you want (and eating a roomful definitely won’t make your stomach feel better). Sailor’s Secret contains just the right amount of ginger for motion comfort.

Convenient Packaging
Our concentrated premium ginger powder comes in easy-to-digest capsules, in exactly the dose you need. Sailors’ Secret is specially packaged for travelling in a convenient pocket-sized box, and even more convenient little silver “blister” packs of two capsules each—so you can just bring what you need, keep it water-proof, and easily share some with friends if you like.
