The moment you start eating ginger, you’ll become inseparable.
It’s the most powerful root in the world and will undoubtedly help you in any situation. Strong in flavour, strange in shape with a smell almost unnoticeable, ginger is beneficial to all aspects of our body.
It’s one of the honorary plants from traditional Chinese medicine and Ayurveda. Although we’ve always known it to be a culinary condiment, as a medical complement, it has no equal.
It gains its power from its composition of acids such as alpha linolenic, linoleic, ascorbic, aspartic, capric, caprylic, gadoleic, glutamic, myristic, oleic, oxalic, gingerol, shogaol and fibre. It also contains essential oils such as citral, citronellal, limonene, camphene, beta-bisoloben, beta-caryophyllene, beta-bisabolol, alpha-farnesene, alpha-cadinene, alpha-cadinol. beta-phellandrene, beta-pinene, beta-sesquifelandrene and gamma-eudesmol. In terms of amino acids, it has arginine, asparagine, histidine, isoleucine, leucine, lysine, methionine, niacin, threonine, tryptophan, tyrosine, valine and minerals including aluminum, boron, chromium, cobalt, manganese, phosphorus, silicon and zinc.
In addition to its impressive composition (which itself might sound a little like Chinese), the ginger, yes, organic, is loved and always at hand because:
- It is a powerful anti-inflammatory and reduces acute pain by improving blood circulation and action. Perfect for menstrual pains, migraines and osteoarthritis.
- It is a perfect mucolytic that will help you recover from colds and the flu, decongesting your lungs and respiratory tract.
- It’s highly effective in all digestive processes, relieving nausea in pregnant women, indigestion or vomiting.
- Recently, its anticancer and antiviral characteristics have been studied, which help to reduce the viral and inflammatory issues accompanying cancers such as colon cancer.
