The power of ginger

Every day I have a ginger shot ( literally juiced fresh ginger with a little  fresh apple juice), as I have read such incredible information on its wonderous work! You can literally feel the effects as it goes into your tummy! I truly believe the benefits of ginger are incredible!

There are very few fruits /spices or medicines that have such incredible medicinal properties:

.

Gingerol  found in Ginger is the main bioactive compound in ginger, responsible for much of its medicinal properties. It has powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects.

.

Ginger appears to be highly effective against nausea.

.

Ginger has been shown to be effective against exercise-induced muscle pain. These effects are believed to be mediated by the anti-inflammatory properties.

.

Ginger has been shown to lower blood sugar levels and improve various heart disease risk factors in patients with type 2 diabetes.

.

Ginger appears to be very effective against menstrual pain when taken at the beginning of the menstrual period.

.

There is some evidence, in both animals and humans, that ginger can lead to significant reductions in LDL cholesterol and blood triglyceride levels.

.

Ginger contains a substance called 6-gingerol, which may have protective effects against cancer. However, this needs to be studied a lot more.

.

Studies suggest that ginger can protect against age-related damage to the brain. It can also improve brain function in elderly women.

.

Gingerol, the bioactive substance in fresh ginger, can help lower the risk of infections.

In fact, ginger extract can inhibit the growth of many different types of bacteria.
