The Goodness In Ginger And How To Grow Your Own

Those who suffer from nausea or digestive problems will benefit from ginger as well. It's particularly good for managing morning sickness in pregnancy or as a travel-sickness preventative drug. When it comes to muscle and joint aches and pains, ginger can help ease both because of the anti-inflammatory properties. This in turn helps those with osteoarthritis disorders like rheumatism and arthritis. Ginger is also well known for being able to significantly reduce blood sugar levels which helps keep the heart healthy.

Ginger and cancer research

Cancer research in recent years is turning more and more to alternative natural plants with some very surprising results. The gingerol oil found in the ginger plant has been used in trials and found to be effective when it comes to anti-cancer components. Those suffering from colon, pancreatic, breast and ovarian cancer showed small decreases in inflammation when given large doses of ginger, but the jury is still out as to whether this is a preventative or cure anomaly. This information was circulated by the Georgia State University who claimed ginger could be 10,000 times stronger than traditional chemotherapy drugs. The scientists involved in that study reported a reduction in tumours in mice and put it down to the 6-shogaol ingredient in ginger. They say the localised stem cells were treated first, and that these are the areas that need attention as they can split and form new tumours. Probably the greatest lesson learned from this research is that the ginger was less taxing as chemotherapy which kills all good antioxidants in the body as well as the deadly cancer cells, leaving patients ill, fatigued and with lots of other intolerable side-effects.
