Eat Ginger For A Month And See Amazing Results In Your Overall Health

Ginger is a popular spice, particularly in Asian cuisine. If you're only eating this aromatic seasoning when you get take-out food, you're missing out on a really healthy treat. It's not just tasty, it's extremely good for you.

Ginger is full of bioactive ingredients that have a lot of medicinal value. It contains anti-inflammatories, which can really help decrease joint and muscle pain. Anti-inflammatories and antioxidants (also found in ginger) working together may help the body fight diseases like Alzheimer’s and osteoarthritis.

Ginger has long been used to treat digestive problems and lower cholesterol-- the 'bad' cholesterol, specifically. For women with severe menstrual pain, ginger might help bring relief.

Some properties of ginger are believed to be anti-carcinogens, which means they help fight cancer. We are exposed to carcinogens on a daily basis in our diet and environment. Research suggests that chemicals found in ginger, like 6-gingerol, might help combat those carcinogens.

Like all herbal medications, there is a limit you should take, and there can be side effects. You should check with your doctor if you plan to take ginger medicinally, and talk to your doctor if you experience indigestion, increased menstrual bleeding or diarrhea. This can happen to people taking too much ginger (upwards of 4 grams per day). However, for most people, a little ginger every day can do a body good.
