In Ayurveda, traditional Indian medicine, ginger has the status of a drug. This is because this wonderful condiment has proven to have many benefits for the digestive system and has been shown to be helpful in treating many body problems.
It strengthens the immune system
It strengthens the immune system due to the large amount of antioxidants, which reduce the risk of infections or diseases. For example, one cup of ginger tea consumed daily can significantly reduce the risk of stroke because ginger active substances block the storage of fat on the arteries, lower the level of bad cholesterol and help prevent different forms of cancer.
It fights cancer and arthritis
Due to its anti-inflammatory properties, regular consumption helps arthritis patients, with no side effects. The tea from this root has also been shown to be effective in the treatment of cancer patients who do chemotherapy. The juice, consumed at a certain concentration, can inhibit the development of cancer cells. Specialists have shown that the plant hinders their development, located in the colon, liver or ovaries, but also stops the vascularization of the tumor.
It melts the fat
A handy way to lose weight is the ginger tea cure, which you can easily prepare yourself, at home. So, in order to lose weight, you have to consume ginger tea twice a day, in addition to the three main meals of the day.
Scientific studies have shown that ginger also has a less common use: it acts like a pill designed to increase sexual potency.
Thus, sexual disorders can be treated with the help of this aromatic plant that improves blood circulation and indirectly acts on the genitals.
Other beneficial effects of ginger:
– expectorant action (cough, bronchitis)
– Improves the level of some liver enzymes (alanine aminotransferases – ALT and aspartate aminotransferases – AST)
– Contains 180 times more enzymes for protein digestion than papaya
—It can be compared with many anti-ulcer drugs
– strong analgesic effects – reduces prostaglandins which, in turn, sensitizes nerve endings
Method of preparation: Ginger root is grated until two or three teaspoons are obtained. Over hot ginger pour boiling water, which boiled.
Cover the mixture, leaving it to infuse for a few minutes. Then you can add fresh lemon juice, as you prefer.
When it cools, we can also put a teaspoon of honey (lime or acacia). We pass it through a strainer to get rid of the scrape and consume it as it is hot.
