The ice cream season is at full peak now, it’s high time to offer you some new recipes like this delicious and spicy ginger ice cream, which you can easily make at home!

Few words on the health benefits of ginger

 

Usually you may not associate ice cream with health, but having mostly natural, healthy organic ingredients will most likely not harm your well being and will actually contribute to your overall health and well being. Even if it just lifts your mood because of its wonderful deliciousness ;-).

So, whether you add it in teas, fruit flavored infused water or even in cosmetics, the benefits of ginger are becoming increasingly known for the wide public. But, do you really know the beneficial properties of this root native to India?

The benefits of ginger on digestion

Suffering from indigestion during this holiday season? Ginger can relieve you quickly ! This is because ginger has both antiemetic and carminative functions, which help to break down gases.

Also, a study found that when people with chronic indigestion took ginger after eating, their stomachs emptied about four minutes faster. For better digestion, you can drink an infusion of ginger with lemon before the meal.

Ginger relieves nausea

The same properties that promote digestion can also help soothe nauseous symptoms. It is interesting to note that this ability to fight nausea is also effective in pregnant women during their morning sickness. Nevertheless, be careful about Ginger doses when you are pregnant! Although moderate amounts (up to 1 teaspoon of grated ginger) are not a risk during pregnancy, significantly exceeding this dose could produce side effects.

So, if you are thinking about taking ginger during your pregnancy, be sure to get the green light from your attending physician.

Ginger can help relieve joint and muscle pain

Whether you are facing post-workout discomfort or chronic discomfort (osteoarthritis, arthritis …), ginger can help you. Thus, a study found that people with muscle damage who took 2 grams of ginger a day for 11 days reported a significant improvement in their pain. It has also been shown to help relieve knee discomfort caused by osteoarthritis.

Ginger can help relieve menstrual pain.

If you often have cramps during your period, ginger can be made for you. Indeed, one study showed that women who took ginger every day from the beginning of their period felt less abdominal cramps and discomfort.

Even better, ginger capsules have proven to be as effective as over-the-counter drugs like ibuprofen.

Ginger helps regulate blood sugar

Ginger appears to promote healthy fat and glucose metabolism as well as insulin sensitivity. The consumption of ginger would thus have a positive impact on blood sugar.

A study of diabetics found that a daily intake of ginger led to a 12% drop in their blood sugar. It has also been shown to lower blood sugar in women with gestational diabetes.

Ginger helps prevent some chronic diseases

Ginger’s ability to fight inflammation allows it to play a role in preventing a large number of chronic health problems. This is the case, for example, with heart disease. This is because daily consumption of ginger significantly reduces cholesterol and triglycerides. It also reduces fat deposits that can cause stiffness and obstruction of the arteries.

Studies also suggest that the antioxidant effect of ginger may play a role in protecting the brain from cognitive decline. In addition, it could potentially prevent some cancers.

How to really enjoy the benefits of ginger?

You will get the most benefits from ginger by consuming it raw, fresh and ideally organic. This is because ginger supplements often contain only isolated compounds.

And since the benefits of ginger seem to be cumulative and add up overtime, try to make it a regular component of your diet. You can consume it in your hot drinks, accompanied by lemon or fresh in your food preparations.

To benefit from the protective and anti-inflammatory effects of ginger you can also integrate it in the form of shots. In a one or two week cure the ginger shot largely covers the recommended minimum dose (5g).
