The gingerroot contains hundreds of compounds and metabolites, and some of them are very beneficial for your health. Consequently, ginger is often used in various forms - fresh, powder, tea, or dietary supplement.
It is one of the best and most tested natural medications that stimulate digestion and improve stomach health. Gingerroot also helps with muscle pains, osteoarthritis, and many other ailments. The unique aroma of the gingerroot derives from its natural oils, mainly gingerol. Gingerol is the main bioactive compound in ginger, responsible for most of its medicinal properties. It has a strong anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effect. Gingerol reduces the risk of infection and may limit the growth of numerous types of bacteria.
Ginger is rich in antioxidants that help to fight oxidative stress and reduce the risk of chronic disease. Factors, such as pollution, UV radiation, and poor dietary choices can increase the production of free radicals, unstable molecules that in excess may damage cells and cause oxidative stress, which can lead to chronic conditions.
Do you often feel sick in the morning? Are you dizzy? Ginger can help you alleviate sensations of nausea, all thanks to - you guessed it - antioxidants, mainly gingerol and shogaol. These two stimulate stomach motility and digestive muscle contraction. Ginger also helps to prevent intestinal cramps, dyspepsia, bloating, and gasses.
Ginger polyphenols (antioxidants in certain plants) reduce the level of inflammatory cytokines and so reduce inflammations in the body. A scientific review of more than 20 studies discovered that ginger reduces various pains - including menstrual cramps, osteoarthritis, and migraines - by reducing inflammations and slowing down prostaglandins (local tissue hormones) that cause pain.
