Due to the richness of useful ingredients, ginger is welcome both in the kitchen and in the home pharmacy, and is particularly effective in overcoming pregnancy and travel sickness. As the latest studies prove, it also alleviates the effects of poor digestion.
The World Journal of Gastroenterology reported on the study that it stimulates stomach emptying, especially in people suffering from poor digestion, thus alleviating pain in the early part of the gastrointestinal tract and eliminating bloating.
Make a ginger tea for bloating by grinding a piece of fresh ginger root or cut it into small pieces. Pour them with a cup of hot water and wait 10 minutes before you drink.

Who doesn’t know ginger? It has an aromatic and burning taste. A small amount of ginger is enough to make a healing tea that will help you with many health issues. From ginger you can also prepare body compresses that accelerate the secretion of accumulated mucus in the body. It helps combat allergies and other respiratory problems. When you feel nausea of any kind, just take ginger.
The ginger contains a lot of aromatic oils and it has many healing properties. The plant itself, as well as ginger oil is rich in ingredients that relieve inflammation and therefore helps in chronic inflammatory diseases such as arthritis.
It also contains aldehydes that drive away cold viruses. It also has great antioxidant properties, which puts ginger at the very top of the active ingredients in spices.
If all of these positive ingredients are not enough for you, it is also proven that the main active ingredients of the ginger can prevent the growth of cancerous cells on the colon and that it can destroy the cancerous cells on the ovaries.
The ginger is considered one of the most powerful plant antioxidants. Scientific studies have shown that it really helps in poor digestion, heartburn, vomiting and prevention of sea sickness. In addition, ginger stimulates blood circulation, releases peripheral vascularity, strengthens saliva secretion, helps with throat inflammation, relieves coughing and has antiseptic properties.
Ginger Ingredients and Effects
Ginger contains a lot of active ingredients such as shogaols and gingerols (combinations of essential oils and resins) that give the ginger its characteristic odor and taste. Studies at the University of Sydney have shown that ginger is quite similar to capsaicin regarding composition and effects, which is well known as a natural pain and inflammatory agent.
Prof. Basil Roufogalis believes that gingerols are even friendlier to the patient, because they are less sharp. They don’t just eliminate the pain, but the inflammation also. An additional advantage of ginger is that is soothes the guts.
According to the article in the English health journal Lancet in 1982, ginger powder is very effective in sea sickness. An experiment on 36 students who are prone to sea sickness showed that 940 mg of ginger powder relieves nausea more effectively than 100 mg of the pharmaceutical drug.
Culinary Use of Ginger
You can also use ginger in the kitchen and prepare delicious meals that will help your digestion. In Asia people often use fresh chopped or grinded ginger. The longer they cook ginger, the more spicy the dish will be. Often they also add large and partly crushed pieces to the dish, which they take out from the prepared dishes at the end of cooking.
The ginger powder is used primarily for the preparation of masala and other dry spice mixtures. If it is used for cooking, it is better to add it only at the end of cooking.
If you want to get rid of the sharpness, broil it on the fat. The aroma will remain strong, and a part of the burning taste will turn into sweet.
Fresh ginger can be replaced with milled ginger in a ratio of 6: 1. You can replace a tablespoon of grated ginger with half a teaspoon of ground ginger.
Possible Side Effects
The possibilities of ginger side effects are very small. It may affect the central nervous system and cause depression and arrhythmia in excessive amounts. If you have gallstones, if you are pregnant or breast-feeding, you should still consult a doctor about consuming large quantities of ginger.
Research has confirmed that pregnant women suffering from vomiting and nausea have noticed a major improvement after consuming 1 g of fresh ginger per day. Doctors don’t advise the use of dry ginger to eliminate nausea during pregnancy. The fresh ginger is in safety class 1, and dry ginger only in 2b class according to the criteria of the American Herbal Products Association (AHPA).
Ginger is a versatile herb that I admire the most. It treats so many diseases and health conditions that it truly deserves to be in your medicinal cabinet.
