Wellness Wednesday: Benefits of Ginger

Posted 6:40 AM by Mezhal Ulao in Labels: ,

Today am featuring a root crop that I love to put on fish and seafood meals to take out the rather fishy taste. I am featuring Ginger today because of the many health benefits it provides those that use it and hopefully that by the next time you consume ginger in your cooking you will be a little more appreciative of this wonderful root crop. :)

Here are the many added health benefits that one can get from Ginger:

Danish researchers found that ginger can block the effects of prostaglandin - a substance that cause inflammation of the blood vessels in the brain and can lead to migraines.

Ginger was found to be effective for relieving the severity of nausea even in cases of pregnancy.

Many women claim that ginger tea helps rid them of menstrual cramps.

It has anti-inflammatory properties that can lessen the pain of rheumatoid arthritis.

Respiratory infections - it is well known for its warming action on the upper respiratory tract, so it has been used to treat colds and flu.

It has been found to be effective in cramps caused by stomach gas. Ginger also stimulates digestion.

It has a wholesome effect on the circulatory system as it makes the platelets less sticky and is of great benefit in case of circulatory disorders.

As a mood enhancer, ginger's cineole content may help contribute to stress relief.

It is a great mouth freshener and ginger tea has vastly refreshing properties.


Aside from a list of benefits I also found a great video from a notable health resource to also further elaborate on what else this little wonder crop Ginger can bring to you and your family :)

I personally use ginger for nausea and when my stomach is upset and it works better than pepto anytime.

Ginger can cause heartburn especially if you chew and swallow the root, so if you are prone to stomach acid beware for this one.

Hi DragonBlogger,

Wow that is definitely good advice and yes it does have that effect when taken too much and if you do have stomach acid problems :)
