Benefits of Ginger

What are the Good Benefits of Ginger 

Ginger is a good source of antioxidants, but it does not provide many vitamins, minerals, or calories. According to the United States Department of Agriculture, "2 teaspoons of ginger provide only 4 calories".

Ginger is said to be
  • Anti-inflammatory
  • Antibacterial
  • Antiviral

Some of the medicinal uses of Ginger are listed below:

  1. It improves digestion & reduces gas
Many research studies explored ginger's effects on the digestion and the gases that form in the intestinal tract during digestion. Many of such studies have indicated that ginger is helpful in expelling the gases that form in the intestine and provides relief from any discomfort that it may cause.

Ginger is also believed to have a beneficial effect on digestive enzymes like trypsin and lipase. It is also known to provide relief to constipation problems by increasing movement in the digestive tract. 
  1. Relieving nausea
Many research papers have inquired into Ginger’s nausea relieving properties on a number of subjects, including the people who have undergone cancer treatment.

The review of studies done in 2011 found that taking 1500 mg of ginger extract daily can help alleviate symptoms of Nausea.

  1. Easing the flu or cold

Though many people use ginger to help them recover from ginger and cold, there is not much evidence to support it fully. However, a group of researchers did study ginger’s effects on human respiratory cells under the attack of the flu virus. They took fresh and dried ginger while conducting their research and found that though fresh ginger to some extent helps protect the respiratory system, dried ginger did not.

  1. Relieving pain

In a small study conducted on 74 volunteers showed that a daily intake of 2 grams of heated or raw ginger helped reduce the exercise-induced muscle pain in humans by 25%.

Also in a review of studies conducted in 2016, it was found that Ginger may help reduce dysmenorrhea or menstrual pain, or a pain that females encounter right before the mensuration.

Reducing inflammation
A group of researchers stated that taking ginger by mouth is helpful in treating osteoarthritis induced pain. But it was also stated that the meta-analysis was small and may not represent the general population. However, a 2017 review of 16 clinical trials was able to accumulate enough data to state that ginger might be able to fight inflammation, however, they are still researching the dosage and types of extract.
  1. Supporting cardiovascular health
Many research papers have been working on Ginger’s positive effects on cardiovascular health. In a study that was done on rats with diabetes, it was found that ginger extract helps in reducing the chances of heart abnormalities.

A study conducted on humans also stated that ginger may help maintain cardovasular health but the number of participants were not enough; thus the results were deemed unreliable.

  1. Lowering cancer risk
Ginger does not provide protein or other nutrients, but it is an excellent source of antioxidants. Studies have shown that, for this reason, ginger can reduce various types of oxidative stress.

Ginger doesn’t provide any nutrients or protein, but it is a great source of antioxidants. And can be used to reduce various types of oxidant stresses from the body (when too many radicals build up in the body).

Too many radicals in the body may lead to cellular damage which becomes the cause of diseases including cancer. In 2013, in a trial, 20 participants (having high risk of developing colorectal cancer) were given 2 g of ginger or placebo for 28 days.

It was later found that people who had consumed ginger had a less chance of developing colorectal cancer (as cellular proliferation was reduced).
