Health Benefits Of Ginger

Eating ginger regularly or adding it to your foods as a spice at least 3 times per week can help improve digestion, gas, and help relieve constipation. Ginger contains a very helpful compound known as gingerol which has a very powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effect on the body.

People who eat ginger regularly can help reduce symptoms of flu, cold, bronchitis, cough, sore throat, arthritis, remove toxins from the body, boost and strengthen the immune system. Pregnant women can also benefit greatly by eating ginger for morning sickness because ginger is a natural nausea reliever. Just note that pregnant women should refrain from eating large amounts of ginger to prevent miscarriages.

Who Should Not Eat Ginger

Ginger is generally safe to consume if you stay within the daily recommended consumption limit which is 4 grams. Eating less than 4 grams of ginger will not cause any side effects on your health. With that being said, some people may experience unwanted symptoms simply by eating as little as 1 gram.

People with diabetes, heart problems, pregnancy, or gallstones should not eat ginger without consulting a doctor. If you experience any of the following symptoms after eating ginger or foods that contain ginger, it may not be safe for you.
