Ginger and its benefits

 

First , I am ginger lover. Usually consumed as an extra to my sushi bites.. I know that is not the real purpose for it. It is supposed to be used to clean your pallet between 2 pieces, for you to experience all the flavors .

In foods and beverages, ginger is used as a flavoring agent.

In manufacturing, ginger is used as for fragrance in soaps and cosmetics.

But it has some health and pain relief properties, and maybe more!!

 


Ginger and its benefits

 

 

One that I found that is part of Ginger and its benefits is..

 

DIABETES!!

Extracts from Buderim Ginger (Australian grown ginger) rich in gingerols, the major active component of ginger rhizome, can increase uptake of glucose into muscle cells without using insulin, and may therefore assist in the management of high blood sugar levels.

If you ever think about self-treating your diabetes with ginger or any other herbal therapy, consult your General Practitioner or other healthcare professional whether it is safe for you to take alongside your diabetes medication as it may heighten the effects of these blood glucose-lowering drugs and cause hypoglycemia.

 

 


 

Here is a 4-Minute video that I found, that will give you more light and explanations…

Very Interesting!

 

 

Anti-Inflammatory

Its powerful anti-inflammatory substances, gingerols, make it an effective pain reliever and it is commonly used to reduce pain and swelling in patients with arthritis and those suffering from other inflammation and muscle complaints.

Well, well,well, I think ill make a habit of having a GINGER morning tea,as I have GOUT issues. So everything that is helping for inflammation, swelling and arthritis, is a plus for me. And maybe on a long run ,I will be able to reduce my medication or maybe,stop it completely. I am not a pill person and I hate taking medication when I can resolve my issue with healthy and natural ingredients that I can find at the supermarket.


In fact, ginger is said to be just as effective as non steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, but without the gastrointestinal side effects.


Ginger and its benefits

Other medical uses of ginger

Bronchitis:Ginger tea may also help bronchitis symptoms, as ginger is a natural anti-inflammatory

Heartburn:Ginger can reduce the likelihood of stomach acid flowing up into the esophagus

Menstrual pain:Taking ginger 2 days before the onset of the menstrual cycle was significantly better at decreasing the duration of pain.

Upset stomach: Ginger, a member of the plant family that includes turmeric and cardamom, has been proven to be effective at treating nausea and vomiting

Diarrhea:Ginger is believed to cure diarrhea that is caused by eating contaminated food

Nausea and vomiting: Ginger is an effective and inexpensive treatment for nausea and vomiting and is safe.


Ginger Nutrition

Two teaspoons of ginger has 4 calories.

The root doesn’t provide many vitamins or minerals, but it’s full of antioxidants that help protect your cells from damage and prevent disease.


Lowers Blood Sugar: Ginger may help your body use insulin better. Larger studies are needed to see if ginger could help improve blood sugar levels.

Lowers Cholesterol: A daily dose of ginger may help you battle your “bad” or LDL cholesterol levels. In a recent study, taking 5 grams of ginger a day for 3 months lowered people’s LDL cholesterol an average of 30 points.

Keeps Your Mouth Healthy

Ginger’s antibacterial power may also brighten your smile. Active compounds in ginger keep oral bacteria from growing. These bacteria are the same ones that can cause periodontal disease, a serious gum infection.

In all its forms

Ginger root is easily available in fresh and powder version at supermarkets and smaller grocery stores, while ginger root supplements, essential oil and ginger extract are stocked by health store and pharmacy.

You can buy your ginger lemon tea already in bag like any tea, but I prefer make my own .

It is not expensive and all natural.
