Ginger is a hot spice that contains many anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and antiviral substances. Nausea, cellulite, colds and… motion sickness. What do these unpleasant ailments have in common? They can all be mitigated with one ingredient! Thanks to its health properties, it is widely used in Asia. Although in Poland the good effect of ginger on the body has not yet been fully appreciated, since you can buy the root in stores, and not just a powdered spice, we eat it much more often. In what situations will it be helpful?

Ginger as a remedy for a sick stomach

Ginger is a remedy for people who have stomach problems. It will help with nausea, diarrhea and stomach pain. It will also reduce gas, accelerate digestion, and help with indigestion. So let's always have it at home. It will also prove useful before the trip, especially for people who suffer from motion sickness. It is worth eating a slice of fresh ginger about half an hour before the planned departure. This method will help us fight all unpleasant ailments. Ginger also relieves nausea and vomiting after chemotherapy or narcosis.



If we know that the meal we are going to eat is difficult to digest, it is worth drinking ginger infusion after it, the preparation of which is extremely simple. It is enough to cut a few (about 5) slices, pour boiling water and set aside for about 10 minutes.



While ginger is an excellent spice for nausea, it is very spicy, so it's better to avoid it during pregnancy. It should also be abandoned by people who suffer from gastric reflux or peptic ulcer disease.

Ginger for colds

Ginger is hot and warm. Additionally, as mentioned at the beginning, it has anti-inflammatory and antiviral substances. Therefore, it is perfect for colds. To avoid getting sick and stay warm, just drink tea with ginger. The spice will also help fight diseases of the upper respiratory tract (it cleans them) and coughing. It is also worth trying it during a migraine.

Ginger - other properties

Although ginger is mainly associated with fighting stomach problems and colds, it is worth knowing that it is also useful in other situations. First of all, it should be mentioned that it thins the blood. Aspirin does the same, but it can damage the stomach. Spice in the right amount will certainly be healthier for us.



Ginger thins the blood, so people who take medications to prevent blood clots and everyone who has problems with too thin blood, nosebleeds, etc. should give it up.


Ginger can also be used externally in case of burns or pain. For people with arthritis, it will help relieve knee pain. The spice's effect is really extensive - thanks to its anti-inflammatory ingredients, it can even inhibit the growth of cancer cells.

In addition, it refreshes and disinfects - such a duo makes it perfect for stomatitis and any problems that may cause bad breath.

When buying a root, pay attention to its appearance. The skin should not have any stains or wrinkles.
