8 REASONS TO CONSUME GINGER REGULARLY
1.Ginger Alleviates Pain According to a study conducted at the University of Georgia, regular ginger supplementation alleviated muscle pain by 25%. Moreover, this miraculous root may also soothe the pain during menstrual cycles, and it has been found to lower the progression of muscle pain. 2.Ginger Reduces Cholesterol Levels Another study which lasted for 45 days included 85 high cholesterol patients found that 3 grams of ginger powder every day significantly reduced choles- terol levels. Also, researchers suggest that it can also reduce the risk of heart disease. 3.Ginger Relieves Digestive Issues Ginger contains phenolic compounds which soothe irritation in the gastro- intestinal tract Moreover, they trigger the production of bile and saliva and thus help the passing of food and fluids through the GI tract. A study, which involved 24 healthy individuals, showed that the consumption of 1.2 grams of ginger powder before meals speeds up the emptying of the stomach, thus reducing indigestion by 50%. 4.Ginger Fights Inflammation Osteoarthritis is a common issue that represents the joint degeneration, which leads to stiffness and pain in the joints. A recent research involved 247 people with knee osteoarthritis and showed that the ones who consumed ginger need- ed less medication and their pain was significantly reduced.
5.Ginger Improves Brain Function Aging is significantly accelerated by oxidative stress and chronic inflammation, which lead to numerous age-related cognitive impairments, such as Alzhei- mer’s disease. Research suggests that ginger contains antioxidants and bioac- tivecompounds, which have powerful inflammatory responses that occur in the brain. One study conducted on 60 middle-aged women showed that the extract of ginger enhances the working memory and reaction time, meaning that it promotes brain health in various ways. 6.Ginger Relieves Nausea The consumption of ginger tea or raw ginger is an effective nausea remedy, especially in the case of pregnancy, morning sickness, and cancer treatments. According to a review of 12 studies which involved 1,278 pregnant women, 1.1- 1.5 grams of ginger greatly reduced nausea. 7.Ginger Lowers the Risk of Heart Disease High blood sugar is the main risk factor for heart disease. A recent study, which involved participants with type 2 diabetes, showed 2 grams of ginger powder on a daily basis reduced blood sugar and caused a 10% overall reduction in 3 months, meaning that it can reduce your heart disease risk by at least 10%. 8.Ginger has Anti-Cancer Properties Ginger contains a substance called 6-gingerol, which has been a subject of nu- merous studies as a potential alternative cancer treatment. One study found that 2 grams of ginger extract on a daily basis reduced the pro-inflammatory signaling molecules in the colon.
