People have recognized and valued the amazing properties of ginger for centuries. It is a rich source of numerous nutrients and offers powerful antibacterial, antiviral, anti-parasitic and anti-inflammatory effects.
According to Rachael Link, MS, RD:
“As one of the most used dietary condiments in the world today, it’s no wonder that the benefits of ginger are pretty impressive. With its zesty, peppery flavor and its extensive list of health benefits, ginger root is equal parts delicious and nutritious. It’s versatile, easy to use and has been associated with everything from beating motion sickness to better brain function.
The health benefits of ginger are largely due to its antioxidants, anti-inflammatory properties and content of therapeutic compounds like gingerol, shogaol, paradol, and zingerone.
Available in fresh, dried, ground, capsule and juice form, ginger root is easy to add to the diet and can have a lasting impact on just about every aspect of health.”
It is one of the richest vitamin C sources, and it is also in magnesium and other minerals, so it fortifies the immune system, helps digestion, relieves pain, cleanses the liver, and treats asthma and cardiovascular diseases.
