Ginger - A Humble Root With Multiple Health Benefits

January 10, 2019

Natural remedies have become much more popular in urban homes today than they were a decade ago. Most people prefer giving such alternative methods a shot before they seek professional medical help, especially for everyday ailments. Ginger tops the list of therapeutic substances that can help you manage a range of existing health conditions and maintain overall health. Here are some astonishing benefits that you can enjoy by including ginger in your daily diet.

  1. Reduces Exercise-Related Muscle Fatigue – The anti-inflammatory effects of ginger are said to be comparable to standard painkillers and, in some cases, much more potent. For instance, ginger supplementation can help relieve sore muscles that occur as a result of intense exercise. Adding fresh ginger to your cup of tea is a good way of ensuring daily consumption.

  2. Relieves Symptoms of Respiratory Illnesses – Troubles like asthma that originate in your respiratory system often exhibit bothersome symptoms like congestion, breathlessness, and wheezing. Certain compounds present in ginger help facilitate bronchodilation, a process that relaxes the airways. As a result, breathing is less stressful, and expulsion of excessive phlegm is possible.

  3. Improves Digestive Health – Improper digestion is generally found to be at the root of many other complicated health disorders. Regular consumption of ginger helps keep the digestive tract healthy and expedites the healing process in case of issues like gastritis, esophagitis, and hepatitis by exerting antioxidant effects and therefore, reducing oxidative stress. 

  4. Aids in Better Management of Diabetes – Managing glucose levels as well as LDL, VLDL, and triglyceride levels in the blood is usually quite a task for people with diabetes. Many studies have successfully proven that regular intake of ginger can help keep these parameters in check.

  5. Helps Pregnant Women Manage Morning Sickness – A cup of ginger tea every morning helps reduce the effects of morning sickness without posing any harmful side effects.

A pungent-tasting knob of ginger can do more than just enhance the flavor of your food but also bring along a variety of health-improving effects. Go ahead and add this tasty root to your diet and feel the benefits for yourself.
