Health Benefits Top 10

Health

1.Anti-Nausea
A 2009 study funded by the National Cancer Institute found patients who consumed ginger had significantly reduced nausea following chemotherapy. A separate study found ginger
more effective than the anti-nausea drug Dramamine in blocking motion sickness.

2. Anti-Cancer
Studies at the University of Singapore have shown that ginger may be a cell modulator in cancer cells. Shogaols, a constituent found in ginger, exhibit potential in suppressing cancer
cell invasion and inflammation in breast carcinoma cells.
3. Circulation Stimulator
Studies at Cornell University revealed that gingerols, an active ingredient in ginger, prevent abnormal blood coagulation, which improves circulation and guards against heart attacks.
While improving circulation, ginger reduces blood cholesterol levels by improving liver function.

4. Digestive
Called “The Great Medicine” by ancient Indian vaids, ginger has been shown to improve gastric mobility (i.e. it helps push food and waste through the digestive system) and hinders
the absorption of cholesterol.

5. Cold and Flu Remedy
Fresh ginger is known to have strong antiviral properties, which can help to tackle cold and flu viruses. The other properties ginger has for soothing the throat, relieving aches and
pains and settling the stomach can help to lessen the symptoms of colds and flus.

6. Migraine Reliever
A study published in Psychotherapy Research showed ginger to be equally as effective as prescription drug Sumatriptan at preventing the onset of migraines and reducing their
severity. Ginger has the added benefit of having no serious or frequent side effects associated with its use medicinally.

7. Anti-Inflammatory
Ginger contains anti-inflammatory compounds believed to soothe joint and muscle pain and, according to research by the University of Maryland, evidence has shown that ginger
may help reduce pain from osteoarthritis.

8. Aphrodesiac
Ginger has been used in Eastern medicine as a libido stimulant for centuries. It is thought that libido is improved
thanks to ginger’s effects on improving circulation and blood flow and increasing energy levels.

9. Anti-Oxidant
Ginger has strong antioxidant properties, helping to promote longevity by protecting cells from damaging ‘free radicals’,
which can cause disease.

10. Anti Flatulence
Ginger has many digestive benefits and is used by many cultures for the relief of flatulence.
