Health Benefits of Ginger Root:
Improves Bone Health
Ginger is known to boost bone health and relieve joint pain. Two years ago, a study was conducted by the University of Miami that had several patients from different backgrounds and ages, who suffered from symptoms of osteoarthritis. The patients have then weaned away from anti-inflammatory and analgesic medications for cleansing purposes. A week later, they were split into two groups; one was put on a placebo and the other on ginger supplements. After six weeks of intensive dosage, a survey was conducted among the two groups. Both groups felt improvement, but 63% of the ginger group felt a notable pain reduction, while only half of the placebo group recorded notable improvement. The last test was for the patients to walk the distance of 50 feet, which proved to be far easier for the ginger group and their results showed twice as much improvement than the test subjects who were on placebos.
Ginger has a number of unique organic compounds which have actually been named gingerols, and these are powerful anti-inflammatory compounds, some of the most powerful that can be found in food. These gingerols have been directly associated with improvements in knee inflammation and associated pain, as well as suppressing the inflammatory compounds like cytokines and chemokines at the source before they can even begin to affect the body. Ginger represents both a preventative measure and a treatment for inflammation and its associated pain.
Ginger has been used since ancient times to cure diarrhea, and it was recently proven by researchers that ginger indeed helps, since it prevents stomach spasms and gas that contribute to and stimulate diarrhea. In China, its powder has been given to those with diarrhea for thousands of years; scientists have concluded that the ancient ways are indeed beneficial for this condition.
Removes Excess Gas
Ginger is a very strong carminative, meaning that it induces excess gas elimination. Excess gas does much more than leaving you in an uncomfortable situation and it can be dangerous to your health. Too much gas built up in your system can force upwards and put pressure on delicate organs in the torso. A carminative like ginger forces the gas down and out in a healthy way and also prevents additional gas from building up again.
Aids in Digestion
Ginger has been discovered to be a facilitator of the digestive process. The elevated sugar levels after a meal may cause the stomach to reduce its natural rate of emptying its contents. It helps in regulating high sugar levels that may disrupt digestion and soothe the stomach, thus, maintaining its regular rhythm. Along with that, ginger has a number of compounds that improve the absorption of nutrients and minerals from the food we eat. This is why ginger is also frequently used as an appetizer or an aperitif since it can stimulate the appetite while preparing the digestive system for an influx of food. Ginger is popular in Asian countries as an appetizer or raw menu item for precisely that reason.
Detoxifies & Disinfects
Ginger is good at promoting sweating. Sweating not only cleans out the pores and allows your body to eliminate toxins through the liquid, but research has also shown that sweat includes a germ-fighting compound, named dermcidin. It has been positively connected to reduced bacterial and viral infections in a person who sweats regularly since it can create a sheen on the skin, which is a protective layer of previously unknown proteins!
Studies have concluded that ginger helps in curing nausea connected with pregnancy, motion sickness, and chemotherapy. Its quick absorption and rapid regulation of body functions cure nausea without the side effects of modern medications.
