Ginger and Gingerol
Anti-inflammatory and Immune Boost
As an ancient remedy, ginger was popular as a boost for the immune system. Now, studies show ginger is also a strong anti-inflammatory and antioxidant. This comes from the important component in ginger, gingerol. Gingerol works to fight inflammation in the body. It is particularly skilled in fighting inflammation in muscles, bones, and joints. As a result, it allows your body to protect itself from a number of health problems. For example, heart disease, cancer, arthritis, Alzheimers, and more!
Ginger is also a powerful tool to utilize when fighting nausea. Compared to over-the-counter nausea relief medicine, ginger works more effectively, efficiently, and does not come with the negative side effects. While the mechanisms of action that gingerol uses to combat nausea remain unknown, it has been confirmed that ginger is an effective and safe treatment for nausea and vomiting. Additionally, ginger is great for those with IBS or diabetes because it kick starts metabolism and can balance out sugar levels.
