Health Study: Benefits of Ginger

According to recent health news, intake of raw ginger in small amounts daily can reduce the strain on muscles after a workout.

Ginger is known to be quite effective in reducing the symptoms of morning sickness. Because of its anti-inflammatory properties, ginger is good for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis too. Ginger has long been used as a cure for nausea, but recent research has suggested it has other powerful attributes too.

One lab study evidenced that ginger powder can kill ovarian cancer cells.

In the recent experiments, American scientists gave participants 2 grams of raw ginger, or a similar amount of heat-treated ginger as some evidence displayed that heat treatment can enhance the spice's potency for 11 days.

A third group was given a placebo. They were then asked to go through a series of arm exercises.  The results were analyzed and it was discovered that 24 hours after exercise, pain levels in the raw ginger-eating group were 25 per cent lesser than those on the placebo.

And in the heat-treated group, pain levels were 23 percent lesser. Researchers indicate that this evidence supports anecdotal fact that ginger has a pain-killing effect.

The news health articles related to this study have been published in the Journal of Pain.

Other Benefits of ginger: 
  • Sipping ginger root tea can give you relief from menstrual cramps.

  • To get rid of motion sickness, chew ginger candy, which can be a great and tasty source of ginger nutrition too.
