BENEFITS OF GINGER
Joint Health: Ginger is an extract which helps to maintain joint mobility and avoid morning stiffness. The Mozaffari et al. (2016) study on 120 patients with osteoarthritis, demonstrated that use of 500mg ginger a day for three months caused a decrease in inflammatory markers compared to the group given a placebo. Altman et al (2001) found that among 247 patients with osteoarthritis (OA) of the knee with moderate to-severe pain, those taking ginger extract for six weeks experienced significant reduction in knee pain on standing, compared with those taking a placebo.
Immunity: Ginger is filled with immune-boosting benefits, making it a common ingredient in homemade tonics, with the newest trend being a ginger shot. Gingerol, the bioactive substance in fresh ginger, can help lower the risk of infections as it offersanti-viral, anti-bacterial and antioxidant benefits, so it helps to fight off free radicals, viral and bacterial infections.
Muscles: Whether you are a professional athlete, a fitness enthusiast or just venturing to complete your first 5km, the muscle soreness and joint pain in the 12- to 48-hour time frame after a vigorous workout can serve as a major frustration. Luckily, ginger has been shown to help reduce exercise induced muscle soreness.
Heart Health:Ginger contributes to vascular health, which in turn helps to maintain a healthy heart. The University of Maryland Medical Center cites a number of studies that suggest ginger may lower cholesterol and prevent blood from clotting. This blood- thinning or anti-coagulant effect is important for people with heart disease: if blood is thinner and free-flowing, it is much less likely to become clogged and lead to a heart attack or stroke.
Energy and Vitality: If boosting immunity and reducing joint and muscle soreness isn’t enough, ginger has also been shown to have stimulating and tonic properties which may help increase energy and reduce fatigue. Ginger can reduce fatigue by improving blood circulation and blood sugar levels.
