Brainy Dose Presents: 10 Amazing Health Benefits of Ginger To Improve
Your Life When you first think of ginger, you probably
think of those gingerbread houses during the holiday season, or maybe ginger ale, the carbonated
soft drink. But, ginger is a popular spice with some powerful
medicinal properties. It’s become well known for its many health
benefits and people around the world consume it for this reason. In this list, we explore 10 amazing health
benefits of ginger. Number 1 – Helps Manage Blood Sugar Levels Researchers have found that ginger can help
keep blood glucose levels in check. This is very important because these levels
have a direct impact on weight loss and weight gain, as well as how energetic or lethargic
you feel throughout the day. If you’ve noticed that you’re feeling
that mid-day crash, it’s most likely because of your blood sugar levels. Adding a little ginger to your lunch can help
you stay focused and on task. Think of ginger as an all-natural alternative
to those energy boosting products like 5 Hour Energy. Number 2 – Relieves Gas Some people just let it rip, regardless of
where they are or who’s around, but for most of us, gas can be embarrassing. There are many anti-gas products on the market,
but it’s always best to try the natural route first. You can try Ginger tea. It’s easy to make and has been proven effective
at relieving gas. Drink a cup of ginger tea before you go to
sleep and the magic should happen overnight while you’re sleeping. It helps clear out your digestive system and
neutralizes the problem from inside. Number 3 – Weight Loss Maintaining a healthy weight is one of the
best things you can do for your overall health. Being overweight can lead to many problems,
including heart attack, stroke, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, diabetes, and even cancer. If you’re on a mission to lose weight, adding
ginger to your diet will help your weight loss efforts. Ginger is a natural ingredient that can be
found in many ‘fat-burning’ supplements. It can speed up your metabolism, leading to
calorie-burning. It can also help keep you feeling full, longer,
reducing your overall calorie intake. Number 4 – Boost Nutrient Absorption It may never have crossed your mind, but when
you eat a healthy meal, your body doesn’t absorb all of the beneficial nutrients. While the range is quite broad, your body
will absorb somewhere between 10 – 90 percent of the vitamins and minerals in your food. Nutrients help signal your hormones to let
the body know when it’s full and keep your fat-burning system working at optimal levels. If you’re looking to improve your health
in general and perhaps lose weight, you’ll want to absorb as many nutrients as possible,
and ginger has been known to boost nutrient absorption! Number 5 – Improves Circulation Ginger helps thin blood, improving your overall
circulation. As ginger improves your blood flow, it can
create a warm feeling in your body. And this is one reason why people enjoy ginger
tea on those cold winter days! Number 6 – Pain Relief Before you reach for a typical pain reliever
like Advil or Aspirin, try ginger first! Regardless of the type of pain you’re suffering,
ginger acts as a natural pain reliever. It even fights inflammation that can cause
aches and pains, and works on a hormonal level. Consider starting your morning with a cup
of ginger tea and see if you notice improvements throughout the day. Number 7 – Improves Your Breath Maybe you have a big date coming up or maybe
you don’t. Either way, ginger can help improve your breath,
and having fresh breath is always a good thing. It’s best to eat ginger toward the end of
your meals so it can cleanse your palate and leave your mouth feeling refreshed. You can also mix some ginger with hot water
and drink it. It’s a great way to flush out your mouth
and neutralize any bad taste, like the dreaded ‘coffee breath’ from drinking coffee. Number 8 – Boosts Immune System If you seem to be battling with frequent colds,
chances are that your immune system is weak. Your diet plays a large role in making your
immune system strong or weak. Adding ginger to your diet will help in keeping
your body’s defense system strong. Doctors say that ginger helps cleanse the
lymphatic system, flush out toxins and kill bacteria. Number 9 – Clears Sinuses Whenever possible, it’s always better to
go with a natural alternative rather than over-the-counter drugs. Try ginger first. There’s an active ingredient in ginger that
has proven to work wonders on the sinuses. It helps unclog your sinuses and facilitate
drainage. You can brew a nice hot cup of ginger tea
to reap the benefits without the use of any medications and their possible side effects. Number 10 – Fights Cancer Chances are, you know someone who is battling
cancer or maybe you’re fighting it yourself. Several studies have found ginger to be beneficial
in fighting lung, prostate, ovarian, colon, breast, skin, and pancreatic cancers. According to researchers, ginger’s anti-cancer
properties are a result of the compound 6-gingerol, which is found in large amounts in raw ginger. 6-gingerol has anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory
and anti-tumor activities. By simply adding ginger to your diet, you
can help prevent new cancer cells from forming and destroy active ones. It’s also beneficial for people who are
already on cancer treatments, since ginger has been known to prevent the toxic effects
of cancer drugs. After watching this video, you should have
a good understanding of the many benefits that ginger offers to protect your entire
body. The next time you’re at the food store,
remember to pick up some ginger root and start adding it to your daily diet. Just note that while it’s rare to have an
adverse reaction to ginger, herbalists suggest that you keep it under 4 grams per day. Also, be sure to look for the following when
you’re picking out your pieces of ginger. • The ginger should be firm to the touch
• The bigger the piece of ginger, the older it is and the more pungent its flavor will
be • Look out for discolorations or soft spots Whether you want to use it in your cooked
meals, drink it as a tea, or press it into fresh juice, you’ll be able to reap all
the amazing health benefits of ginger. Thanks for watching and thanks for subscribing! If you thought this video was useful, give

Eating boiled ginger cured me from almost dying from giardiasis; that bug is NIGHTMARE.

After chewing and swallowing a few boiled pieces, the ginger compounds work to kill the rapidly multiplying parasite, giardia lamblia RIGHT AWAY (I felt immediate relief). I really was dying as my immune system was under attack and my body wealth losing all its nutrients. I also felt myself leaving here everyday for about six weeks.
