Ginger has many good health effects.

Support digestion, anti-inflammatory

Ginger has long been used as a medicine to treat gastrointestinal problems. Accordingly, studies show that ginger has the ability to stimulate digestion and reduce the feeling of fullness and nausea.

In addition, the main ingredient in ginger is gingerol, a highly bioactive, antioxidant organic compound, which helps reduce inflammation in the stomach and intestinal tract. Ginger also helps relieve pain and improve bone and joint function.

Regulates blood sugar levels

According to a study recently published in the Iranian Journal of Pharmaceutical Research, ginger supports the treatment of diabetes, especially those with type 2 diabetes. Studies have also shown that ginger reduces diabetes-related complications while improving insulin activity, which regulates blood sugar levels.

Control cholesterol

Ginger contains the compounds shogaol and paradol, which reduce inflammation and the ability of cholesterol (fat) to accumulate in the blood vessels. Ginger also helps maintain stable blood pressure, reducing the risk of cardiovascular problems.

Prevent cancers

Research results from the American Gastrointestinal Association (AGA) show that ginger has protective properties and inhibits the growth of certain cancer cells.

Notes for taking ginger
