There is Just Something Good About Ginger!

My mother’s new favorite healthy food is the ginger root! When added with some lemon, she says there is just something good about ginger that it does for her body. Since she started taking this ginger tea (infused ginger in hot water) with her slice of half a lemon, she says she had never felt better in years.

According to her, she feels lighter, can walk longer without feeling pain and she even believes it has helped reduce fat in her body. She loves it so much that she has recommended it to quite a number of people at work with similar issues and they gave her good feedback.

Now, what really does ginger do for the body that makes my mother swear by it?

Infused ginger tea

Although there are no conclusions based on research done to determine how effective ginger is in the treatment of arthritis pain or even nausea, under limited studies, ginger has been known to help in the treatment of nausea, most especially that caused by motion sickness, morning sickness and chemotherapy.

Ginger has also been used in bringing relief to digestive problems such as loss of appetite. It can also be helpful in combating cold, as drinking ginger tea can promote sweating and warm up the body from within.

It has also been used to reduce inflammation associated with osteoarthritis and pain, such as menstrual cramps (dysmenorrheal).

Ginger powder

Ginger is used in cooking, either fresh or in the powder form. It can also be made into tea, just like my mum does bit grating some and putting in hot water to infuse.

Although ginger is generally safe for many, there are still some that may react to it adversely. It can adversely affect individuals with gallstones and may interfere with anticoagulants such as warfarin or aspirin and for some, it may cause heart burn.

The most important thing to note is that just like any other foods, whether healthy or not, ginger should also be taken in moderation.
