Ginger is known to be one of the best traditional medicines in the world. Aside its medicinal properties, they are used as a natural spice and many other uses. Here are the health benefits of consuming ginger.

Anti- inflammatory Properties

First, let’ s talk about ginger as an anti- inflammatory. When a certain level of inflammation helps our bodies regulate and fight disease, too much inflammation means terrible things to our health. It’ s linked to everything from arthritis and blindness to cancer and diabetes, but not if ginger has anything to do with it. Studies show that the compound called gingerol, which is active in ginger, is a potent anti- inflammatory agent in fighting inflammation in our body.

Anticardiopathy

The anti- inflammatory properties of ginger may also help improve cardiovascular health when combined with a healthy diet. One study found that ginger capsules lowered cholesterol and triglyceride levels, as well as LDL.

Reduces the risk of diabetes

Several studies have showed that ginger helps control blood sugar and thus helps manage and prevent diabetes. The process is a bit like this: By inhibiting certain enzymes, the compounds in ginger help improve metabolism and facilitate the release of insulin.

However, eating ginger in sugary baked goods- or, say, ginger candy won’ t work. Stick to fresh ginger and other non- sugar- fortified forms (in one study powdered ginger supplements showed positive results). Other studies suggest that it may act similarly to ibuprofen.

May hinder cancer growth

A study found that ginger extract helped slow ovarian cancer by inhibiting cell growth, leading researchers to believe that ginger has anti- cancer properties. Research has also shown that shogaols, the active compounds in ginger, can damage the lungs and develop breast cancer.
