CNB Fruity Talk:Do You Know That GINGER Has All These Health Benefits?


Ginger is a wonder spice that has time-tested, digestion-friendly properties, in addition to its numerous other health benefits. Ginger is the underground rhizome of the ginger plant with a firm texture. The flesh of the ginger rhizome can be yellow, white or red in color, depending upon the variety. I love to grate some ginger root and put it in my juice extractor, along with some orange and apples and a little lemon juice..hmmm..Totally yummy!
Here are some amazing health benefits of ginger you may not know about:
1. Haven’t been feeling hungry? Eat fresh ginger just before lunch to stoke a dull appetite and fire up the digestive juices.


2. Ginger improves the absorption and assimilation of essential nutrients in the body.

3. Ginger clears the ‘micro-circulatory channels’ of the body, including the pesky sinuses that tend to flare up from time to time.

4. Feeling airsick or nauseous? Chew on ginger, preferably tossed in a little honey.Ginger is a known effective remedy for the nausea associated with motion sickness. The exact reason is unknown, a naval cadet study showed that those given ginger powder suffered less motion sickness.

5. Tummy moaning and groaning under cramps? Munch on ginger.
          6. Reeling under joint pain? Ginger, with its anti-inflammatory properties—can bring relief. Float some ginger essential oil in your bath to help aching muscles and joints.

7. Stir up some ginger tea to get rid of throat and nose congestion. Ginger has been used for thousands of years as a natural treatment for cold. a study I read, by the university of maryland said that to treat cold and flu symptoms in adults, steep 2 tbsp. of freshly shredded or chopped ginger root in hot water, two to three times a day. 

8. Fights Common Respiratory Problems. If you’re suffering from common respiratory diseases such as a cough, ginger aids in expanding your lungs and loosening up phlegm because it is a natural expectorant that breaks down and removes mucus.. That way you can quickly recover from difficulty in breathing. 

9. Ovarian Cancer Treatment. Ginger powder induces cell death in ovarian cancer cells. 

10. Strengthens Immunity. Ginger helps improve the immune system. Consuming a little bit ginger a day can help foil potential risk of a stroke by inhibiting fatty deposits from the arteries. It also decreases bacterial infections in the stomach, and helps battle a bad cough and throat irritation.
