Juicing for Ginger Health Benefits

Ginger Health Benefits

Ginger is among the healthiest spices on the planet. It is loaded with nutrients and bioactive compounds that have powerful benefits for your body.
The root (rhizome) of the ginger plant can be consumed fresh, powdered, dried as a spice, in oil form or as juice.
Ginger root is rich in vitamin C, potassium, copper, manganese, phosphorus, iron, calcium, folic acid, and silicon.
The advantage of juicing ginger is that it allows your body to absorb the nutrients found inside more easily. Ginger root juice is an effective remedy for many types of illnesses.
By stimulating white cells to fight infection, ginger root juice aids in treating bouts with colds, fevers, and sore throats.
It has been found to be useful for treating motion sickness, morning sickness, nausea, and vomiting. This benefit is particularly relevant for those who may be going through chemotherapy or pregnancy.
A diet high in ginger root juice will aid in treating several inflammatory problems such as rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, and gout.
Ginger root juice has proven to significantly lower cholesterol and reduce the risk of atherosclerosis. It can also help to relieve indigestion and heartburn.
Ginger root has also proven to act as an effective painkiller. Applying ginger root juice to the tender area of the body may help to lessen pain.
Ginger may drastically lower blood sugar and improve heart disease risk factors. This area of research is relatively new, but ginger may have powerful anti-diabetic properties.
In a recent 2015 study of 41 participants with type 2 diabetes, 2 grams of ginger powder per day lowered fasting blood sugar by 12%.
