I was surprised with what this root can do!
The thing that i like the most about this is that it makes my nausea disappear. Just chewing a piece of it or drinking a ginger beer seems to help.
There are other studies that suggest ginger and the active substances in it can slow the growth of cancer cells or help with the blood pressure or can help with menstrual pain (wouldn’t that be nice) and so on. The studies in those cases are few and made on small groups. Until bigger research is done I will not venture to say what ginger can do or can’t. For the moment I only list the things that I have tried and saw a difference.
1. Less gas and improved digestion
YES! It is true. Studies indicate that enzymes in ginger can help the body break up and expel this gas that forms in the intestinal tract during digestion. Also, ginger may help increase movement through the digestive tract, suggesting that it may relieve or prevent constipation.
2. No more nausea
This might just be my favorite benefit that this magic root does! For me it can be even a Ginger beer that helps. A cold fresh ginger drink will go perfectly with a heavy meal and in the end you will not feel like a balloon. You can also try a fresh ginger tea wit lemon juice. this will also work wonders.
3. Easing a cold or the flu
Another good one. I have to say whenever I feel my nose a bit stuffy or my throat is hurting, a fresh mint & ginger tea does the trick.
5. Relieving pain
Muscular pain to be more precise. It is said that 2 grams of fresh or heated ginger will relieve the pain after a thorough workout. Don’t be fooled, it will not make it go away 100%. It is the same with dark chocolate, you will still be in pain.
6. Keeps Your Mouth Healthy
Ginger’s antibacterial power may also brighten your smile. That does not mean that you don’t have to wash your teeth every day!
