Ginger: Why You Will Never Again Leave Your Home Without It!

Ginger is one of the most potent spices on earth. It's also one of the few edible roots with multiple uses we can all easily access. It was first farmed in Asia but quickly spread to parts of Africa and the Caribbean.  The following points will convince you that you should  always have a piece of fresh ginger (or frozen) at hand. These were all recorded after studies and researches made by respected scientists and scholars.

  • Treat an itchy throat and niggling cough with a drink of ginger or a small piece of fresh ginger. (Put a few thin slices in hot water).
  • Use as soon as you feel a cold coming on. It's better than vitamin C (it contains Vitamin C) because if its strong anti-viral properties.
  • It slows cancerous cells. Make sure you use ginger in your cooking regularly.
  • Treat nausea, sea sickness and travel sickness.
  • Use ginger regularly if you have problems with constipation.
  • It aids in the absorption of protein, so is great for digestion.
Don't forget you can make yourself some ginger ale at home
  • Ginger has antihistamine qualities so is helpful in the treatment of allergies.
  • It's great for anti-inflammatory illnesses, so use regularly for pains due to arthritic and other muscular conditions. 
  • Ginger prevents blood clots from forming.
  • It's been used for thousands of years in Asian countries to preserve a youthful body and appearance.
  • Ginger prevents cramps due to IBS.
  • If you've eaten too much, eat a small piece of ginger to aid the digestion process and to prevent heart burns later on.
Ginger makes delicious cakes and breads too.
  • It lowers cholesterol.
  • If you're a smoker, chewing a small slice of ginger will clear your breath better than chewing gum.
  • Ginger has antibacterial and anti-fungal properties, so is good for preventing gum disease and tooth decay.
  • It's a natural source of Vitamin C, zinc and magnesium, and is 100% better than taking vitamin pills to top up on these minerals. 
  • Ginger maintains blood flow to all parts of the body including the sexual organs. 
  • Of course, use ginger in your cooking to spice up your food. I use it in my curries every Friday on curry day and it's brilliant!

Anne, maybe you don't remember it, but this is one of the herb/spices I spotlighted at Triond. It does all that you say and more. I also found a recipe for home made ginger ale, which is quite good.

I love natural remedies. God wants us well. Take care & God bless!

I did not know any of this. And all this time I thought it was just a lil ol' ugly root next to other ugly roots in the grocery store. I'm passing this on to wifey and we are going to buy some ginger this week. Thanks.

I love ginger, but I eat it seldom. After reading this, perhaps I'll eat it more regularly.
