|Health / Do You Know These Are Health Benefits Of Ginger? by Elvischris(m): 2:51pm On Jul 28, 2018|
This morning, as I got back from jogging, I proceeded to make tea (Lipton) which I usually take black. A friend approached and asked why and I told her certain benefits of tea. She had a problem with drinking bitter stuff of course and I tried to give her alternatives. I offered her options like adding lemon or lime juice, honey and ginger to the tea. On hearing ginger, she made a face which prompted this article.
Do you think Ginger is that bad?
Let us see…
Ginger is a popular ingredient in cooking. It has also been used for thousands of years for medicinal purposes.
Possible health benefits include relieving nausea, loss of appetite, motion sickness, and pain.
Gingerol is the main bioactive compound in ginger, responsible for much of its medicinal properties. It has powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects.
The root or underground stem (rhizome) of the ginger plant can be consumed fresh, powdered, dried as a spice, in oil form, or as juice. Ginger is part of the Zingiberaceae family, alongside cardamom and turmeric. It is commonly produced in India, Jamaica, Fiji, Indonesia, and Australia.
It is available fresh and dried, as ginger extract and ginger oil, and in tinctures, capsules, and lozenges. Foods that contain ginger include gingerbread, cookies, ginger snaps, ginger ale, and a wide variety of savory recipes.
The nutritional contents of ginger include:
In 100 grams (g) of a fresh ginger root, there are:
2.17.86 g of carbohydrate
3.3.6 g of dietary fiber
4.3.57 g of protein
5.0 g of sugar
6.14 mg of sodium
7.1.15 g of iron
8.7.7 mg of vitamin C
9.33 mg of potassium
Other nutrients found in gingerin ginger are:
Fresh or dried ginger can be used to flavor foods and drinks without adding unnecessary salt or sugar. Since it is often consumed in such small amounts, ginger does not add significant quantities of calories, carbohydrate, protein, or fiber.
Proven health benefits of Ginger include:
Eases Menstrual Pain– Unfortunately, adverse side effects like pain, period cramps (dysmenorrhea) and headaches are commonly associated with menstruation for many women. While some turn to over-the-counter medications to provide symptom relief, natural remedies like ginger can be just as useful at easing menstrual pain.
A study published in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicineshowed that ginger reduces menstrual pain as effectively as medications like ibuprofen and mefenamic acid. Another study in 2009 had similar findings, reporting that ginger reduces both the intensity and duration of pain.
Helps Treat Nausea– Used historically as a natural remedy for seasickness and morning sickness, ginger is perhaps most well-known for its ability to treat nausea and vomiting.
One review looked at the results of 12 studies comprised of 1,278 pregnant women and found that ginger was effective at decreasing symptoms of nausea with minimal risk of side effects. Plus, another study from the University of Rochester Medical Center showed that ginger helped reduce nausea severity in patients receiving chemotherapy.
Digestive Tract Protection– Ginger has also been historically used for flatulence, constipation, bloating, and other digestive complaints.
In addition to these gastro-protective effects, researchers have found ginger to be effective for stress-related ulcers.
Regulating Blood Sugar– Ginger has repeatedly demonstrated powerful blood sugar balancing effects. It acts on insulin release and sensitivity and supports the metabolism of carbohydrates and lipids. In one study, insulin levels noticeably lowered with ginger supplementation.
In addition to its effectiveness as a blood sugar stabilizer, ginger has also demonstrated powerful protective effects against diabetic kidney, eye and liver complications.
Tea with ginger slices.
The United States (U.S.) Food and Drug Administration (FDA) considerginger to be a food additive that is “generally recognized as safe.”
Natural ginger will cause little or no known side effects for most people. In some, however, a high intake may worsen symptomsof acid reflux, irritate the mouth, and cause diarrhea. Taking ginger as capsules may help reduce the risk of heartburn.
The effectiveness and side effects from ginger supplements will vary by brand and formulation, but people are advised not to take more than 4 g of dried ginger a day, or 1 g during pregnancy, including food sources. Scientists urge caution when using supplements, as these are not standardized.
Anyone who is pregnant, or who has gallstones, diabetes, or a blood clotting disorder should discuss first with their doctor whether to increase their intake of ginger. Ginger supplements should not be used with aspirinor other blood-thinning medications.
Scientists notethat many of the compounds in ginger have not been fully investigated, and not all of the claims for ginger have been supported by research.
However, many of those that have been studied appear to show promise for medicinal purposes.
It is better to seek dietary sources of nutrients rather than supplements and to consume them as part of an overall diet, rather than focusing on one item.
Well, I will agree it has its residual smell that may come off as unpleasant but then, that is nothing. If you’re looking for a fast way to burn belly fat, ginger is one cheap answer to your problems.
Tea + ginger + honey = reduced belly fat.
This is my personal recipe, enjoy!

I would be teaching about how you can save money fordatainstead of wasting money while being online daily. With this option inAirtel, it will be easier for you to manage your money according to how you get it.
Data has been recognized and valued in Nigeria since phone and its accessories manifested in Nigeria. However, Data is used as an internet fuel to browsers, this helps a browser to surf information online.
You know when you buy a car and there is no fuel in the tank, this simply means, the car can’t get started. In phone software,datais browser fuel which enables them to get online.
So today, I would be teaching on how you can use200nairato archive2gbof data inairtel network.
Airtelis a Nigerian based network but might be known in other countries, but this post applies to Nigerian users only.
When this Code of data started, they give2GBof data for200naira, this will last for 10 days, while500nairafor5GB, this will last for25days. Now they have reduced and they are giving1.24GBfor200naira. It will definitely expire In 10 days also.
This option works only forEDGE users. I mean it works for people who use the2G networkin their phone. So if you must follow this article to practice, am sure you would switch your network toEDGE.
The reason while its advisory to purchase this data plan, this platform of data would enable you to be online inWhatsapp, Facebook, Twitter E.T.Cwithout any misconduct, This data has no restriction, you can use it to download, upload, stream on youtube. you can use it anywhere on the internet.
This plan is good because you wouldn’t spend a hell of money like you subscribe for3G network. This platform enables you online 24/7 because its data plan is cheap. Using this plan deducts low data usage to your system.
Now I would explain how you can get this:
Go to your phone USSD menu
On that window, like this post previewed picture,
You can see the option (1) as200 naira while option (2) as500naira.
Remember option one last for 10 days, while option 2 last for 25 days. So it’s left for you to decide which to choose.
If you select option(1), kindly input1in the above blank box with white color on the picture. Same applies to option 2.
Note:Make sure you have up to the amount listed200 – 500 naira.If you have an insufficient balance nothing would work.
After inputting the option number in the box,click on send to activate.
You have successfully purchased a 2G network of 2gb data for 10 days. or 5gb data at 500naira for 25days.
