Popular Reasons For Taking Ginger Root
Many take a ginger root supplement every day because they claim it helps them to stay in good health. When you consider all the benefits that ginger root is claimed to offer, and for which the substance has been used for hundreds and even thousands of years, it is little wonder that they make such a claim. The absence of scientific tests on humans only tells us that such tests have not yet been carried out, not that the claimed benefits do not exist. In fact, it would be surprising if they were false, having been used independently by multiple cultures for many hundreds of years.
What are these properties of ginger root for which people take it as a maintenance supplement? Mainly general health benefits such as helping you to shrug off the effects of chills, colds and flu, and gastrointestinal benefits such as helping you avoid (or curing) indigestion, heartburn, nausea, flatulence, diarrhea, the worst effects of morning sickness, general sickness, the swelling and pain of arthritis, toothache, tendonitis and sore throats, and more.
Some of these have now been proved by human tests, while others, such the effect of ginger root on some cancer cells are experimental but promising. Ginger has been found effective against cancers of the colon, skin, breast and ovaries. Relatively recently, the American Association for Cancer Research conference in Phoenix announced that ginger was able to destroy cancer cells in one test.
All of this is very promising, and there is a great deal of anecdotal and other evidence that taking a regular supplement of ginger root will not only help keep you fit and well all year round, but also enable you to eat those wonderful foods that would otherwise make you suffer afterwards.
