What is ginger good for?
Ginger is a tropical herb that belongs to the ginger family. In Asia, ginger has been used for thousands of years and is, among other things, an important part of Asian cuisine. Ginger is known for its many properties, including being very rich in gingerols, which in some studies are considered to have antioxidant properties (1). Ginger is also a good source of minerals such as magnesium, calcium, copper and zinc, as well as vitamins such as vitamin B6, vitamin C and Vitamin E. Antioxidants such as vitamin C protect the cells from breakdown and vitamins are important for the immune system to function well. Ginger also has a hot, slightly pungent taste that can cause an increase in heat in the body.
An old household remedy
Ginger in particular is part of several old home remedies, especially in connection with colds and stomach problems. Raw ginger is also said to be able to help with nausea, for example in motion sickness. It is also common in dietary supplements for joints and has been studied in connection with knee problems (2). However, more studies are needed to be able to say for sure whether it helps or not.
Ginger has become a popular part of everyday life for many of those who want to live a healthy lifestyle.
