Not everyone loves the taste of ginger, but I love the sharp taste. In the evening I like to drink fresh ginger tea, sometimes with a little raw honey to make it a little sweeter.
Ginger is a seasoning that is good for your health. It is good for digestion, it keeps you vital, is pain relieving and is an anti-inflammatory. This spice is full of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and amino acids.
At the end of this article I share two delicious recipes with you, Ginger chai tea and Golden Porridge with Ginger and Turmeric!
Biotona Bio Ginger Raw
Various ingredients from ginger – including gingerols, shogaoles, paradols and zingerone – have anti-inflammatory properties that can be compared with the effects of a painkiller. Ginger inhibits the production of substances that ensure that inflammation persists. In particular inflammation of the joints, such as arthritis, can be remedied in this way.
In the meantime, more than 100 clinical studies have demonstrated the effect of ginger against nausea, without any side effects. This is due to the active ingredient gingerol. For example, it helps against morning sickness with pregnant women, against travel and seasickness and even with emerging nausea and vomiting after anesthesia or after chemotherapy. Ginger is recommended by the World Health Organization (WHO) as a remedy for nausea.
Ginger improves digestion by stimulating the production of saliva and digestive enzymes. The stomach acid is also neutralized and the muscles of the esophagus relax thanks to the specific substances that ginger contains. For example, ginger can have an illuminating effect at heartburn and acid burping.
In China, women have been using ginger for thousands of years to relieve pain before and during menstruation. Ginger can also reduce pain due to osteoarthritis and joint pains.
Heart and vessels
The risk of cardiovascular disease decreases with the daily use of ginger. It improves blood circulation and the transport of nutrients and (phyto) nutrients in the bloodstream. In addition, ginger also facilitates the delivery of nutrients and (phyto) nutrients to our body cells.
