You may know that ginger is a common ingredient in Asian and Indian cuisine, but did you know that it’s been used for centuries for its healing properties?
Ginger has a long history of health benefits, including relief from nausea, digestive issues and pain.
The most commonly used part of the plant for medicinal purposes is the root or underground stem, known as the rhizome. It can be consumed fresh, powdered, dried as a spice, or used in the form of an oil or as juice.
If you don’t use ginger in your kitchen, here are 8 reasons why you might want to start!
1. Ginger Relieves Digestive Issues
The phenolic compounds in ginger have been shown to help relieve irritation in the gastrointestinal tract.
They help to stimulate saliva and bile production while allowing food and fluids to move through the GI tract more smoothly.
In a study of 24 healthy individuals, taking 1.2 grams of ginger powder before a meal accelerated emptying of the stomach, reducing indigestion by 50%.
2. Ginger Relieves Nausea
Drinking ginger tea or even consuming raw ginger is a common and safe home remedy for nausea, especially during cancer treatment or pregnancy and morning sickness.
A review of 12 studies that included a total of 1,278 pregnant women found that 1.1-1.5 grams of ginger significantly reduced nausea.
3. Ginger Can Relieve Pain
A study conducted at the University of Georgia found that daily ginger supplementation reduced muscle pain by 25%.
Ginger has also been found to reduce pain during menstrual cycles.
Researchers also believe that ginger is effective at reducing the day-to-day progression of muscle pain.
4. Ginger Reduces Inflammation
Osteoarthritis is a common health problem that involves the degeneration of the joints in the body, causing joint pain and stiffness. In a trial of 247 people with osteoarthritis of the knee, those who took ginger extract had less pain and required less pain medication.
5. Ginger May Reduce Risk of Heart Disease
In a recent study involving participants with type 2 diabetes, researchers found that 2 grams of ginger powder each day lowered blood sugar and led to a 10% overall reduction over a period of 12 weeks.
High blood sugar is a major risk factor for heart disease.
With the effects of ginger on blood sugar, your risk of heart disease may be lowered by at leas 10%.
6. Ginger May Lower Cholesterol Levels
A 45-day study involving 85 people with high cholesterol concluded that 3 grams of ginger powder each day caused significant reductions in cholesterol levels.
Researchers believe that ginger can aid in lowering cholesterol levels and reducing the risk of heart disease.
7. Ginger May Have Anti-Cancer Properties
A substance in ginger known as 6-gingerol has been studied as an alternative treatment for several types of cancer.
Research on this theory is still being conducted, but one study found that 2 grams of ginger extract each day significantly reduced pro-inflammatory signaling molecules in the colon.
8. Ginger May Improve Brain Function
Oxadative stress and chronic inflammation are two factors that can accelerate the aging process, and become a key driver of Alzheimer’s disease and other age-related cognitive impairments.
Some studies suggest that the antioxidants and bioactive compounds in ginger can inhibit inflammatory responses that occur in the brain.
In a study of 60 middle-aged women, ginger extract was shown to improve reaction time and working memory, suggesting that ginger supports brain health in multiple ways.

Godking Marksman in on the toilet because of it. I hadn't eaten anything since I woke up and I'm blending it with water, grapefruit, oranges, reishi, and a lot of water and it is powerful. I've gotten so much out of me that I can feel my stomach thanking me.
low cholesterol means youll end up going for viagra since you cant get it up anymore. cholesterol isnt bad. go ask anyone to see if they even know what cholesterol is used for by the body. almost no one will know. cholesterol is the basic building block for most important hormones. so having low cholesterol will suck a lot. especially if youre older
bestamerica if you make a paste with it and extra virgin olive oil, rub it on your penis for a week or so (took me almost two) penis will grow few inches, and fatter.. I'm living proof of it.. I also live on a bad diet.. junk food.
It's so cool ginger can reduce the risk of heart disease and prevent cancer. My uncle passed away due to colon cancer and the fact that this can reduce pro-inflammatory signaling molecules in the colon is amazing. I will be drinking this every day.
I have been taking mummy magic weight loss tea for 8 days, along with being on a lоw-cаrb diet, drinking а lot of water, and walking for a little exсеrcisе. I have lost 11 lbs in 8days! If уоu'rе interested,

Today, my teenage daughter was bent-over with abdominal pain (i think due to her monthly visitor). I made her a tea composed of chopped parsley from my garden, plus i added fresh lemon juice, some ginger and turmeric. I let it all steep about 15 minutes. She drank it and in about 1/2 hour, she was feeling just fine! Natural herbs from mother-earth really do work!
Morp Morpt My mom grew her eyebrows back after three months. I'm reversing my hair loss with it. I'm loosing lot's of weight because I put it in all my juices. Once you try it for a while not just a day or two you will see people giving you compliments about how you look. oh my mom doesn't need cataract surgery anymore. She even stopped wearing glasses.
I can vouch that ginger can get rid of gas and nausea but to kill cancer cell? I've been diagnose with ovarian cancer but have yet to determine the stage. Guess I'll give it a try before my surgery date.
if you have a bones and nerves problem for what do you want to put in sugar??? Sugar is bad for everything.
Just buy Ginger, cut it into pieces and make tea out of it, without sugar...and for the nerves Vitamin B complex. In Asian food they use ginger everywhere, mostly in combination with garlic. Put it into the food processor with a clove of garlic, chop it and fry it together with onions or so, add some chilies, which are anti-inflammatory, too, add some rice and fish sauce or soy sauce and you got your fried rice.
ginger should be take in moderation. I ever take ginger every day. the result ? pain when urinating , I told a doctor, he also don't know what to do. after thinking hard I stop ginger and the pain is gone.
Ginger is also great appetizer.
Due some problems, i lost 20kg and apetite
Started eating piece of row ginger 1h before meel and felt hungry ,so i can eat ,and got 3kg back
It's better than garlic, since you don't have to worry about bad smell
