Ginger is popular for its vibrant and spicy flavor, but it has also been used for thousands of years to treat a variety of ailments. Here is why...
Ginger acts as a powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory. Ginger is a great tool for reducing risk of disease. It is also helpful for protecting our bodies from the damaging effects of aging, including cognitive decline, like Alzheimer's Disease. Ginger is useful in reducing soreness after exercise and soothing inflammation related aches and pains.
Ginger is especially effective for combatting nausea, because it accumulates in the digestive tract. It is commonly used to combat nausea associated with pregnancy, chemotherapy, and motion sickness. Ginger can also help to combat indigestion, because it accelerates the emptying of the stomach (therefore stimulating the digestive process).
Ginger promotes lipid metabolization and helps to reduce cholesterol and blood triglycerides. For these reasons, it helps to reduce risk of cardiovascular disease and diabetes.
