The truth about ginger
Like lots of other veggies, we were told many and many times ever since we were young by our parents about the tremendous benefits of including ginger in one’s diet. We didn’t know how beneficial it was until we grew up and discovered by ourselves how important it is and how it’s a hell of a nutrient that contains a lot of other nutrients.
What makes a veggie like ginger so special is that ginger almost contains all of the beneficial vitamins at the same time. Ginger is rich in
- Vitamin B1
- Vitamin B2
- Vitamin B3
- Vitamin B3 (niacin equivalents)
- Vitamin B6
- Vitamin B12
- Vitamin C
- Vitamin A (retinoids and carotenoids)
- Vitamin D
- Vitamin E
- Vitamin K
There are several ways to get your daily servings of ginger.
- Tea-like: perfect in fall and winter. Just get some fresh ginger (no need to peel) and put it in some boiling water. You can also add a little honey, a little lemon, and it’s the perfect winter hot drink.
- As soup: using fresh ginger, some like to drink it added to the main ingredients of a soup like sweet potato soup with ginger.
- With fish: especially for those who like their fish as in sushi or Japanese food in general. There isn’t a single sushi plate that can be served without ginger cuts.
- In desserts: there are lots of desserts that go along with fresh ginger. Try milk with ginger for these caramels or ginger pies or pumpkin pie with ginger.
So let’s discus some of these benefits of ginger.

It works well with always feeling hungry and craving food. Just make sure it’s fresh ginger; it works on firing up your digestive juices and makes you always feeling hungry.
3) Nutrients Absorption
Some people have a big problem that their bodies always get rid of some essential nutrients automatically. Ginger was scientifically proven to have a great impact upon the absorption of nutrients in a normal way inside the body and makes sure you don’t waste them or get rid of them. It prevents the body from dumping these essential nutrients and makes sure that your body makes the best use of them and absorbs them to make good use of them.
Feeling unbearable joints pain or swelling from whatever heavy duty you made, try including some ginger but on a regular basis in your diet and by regular basis I mean every meal should contain a portion of fresh ginger. It reduces inflammation and swelling such that some people soak some ginger in their tub before taking their bath.
5) Throat Congestion
Whenever you start feeling any kind of nose or throat congestions, due to cold weather or whatsoever, try sipping some ginger tea (powdered ginger made like tea comes in packets also) and adding lemon or honey to it and see the miracle of ginger on these kinds of congestions. It cools down the throat and makes you feel better. So after every ginger tea cup you sip, you will even feel better than before.
6) Weight Loss
Nothing was scientifically proven, however we took out a semisurvey among people who used to usually drink from 2 to 3 cups of ginger and mix it with cinnamon, for instance, all of them ensured the fact of experiencing a significant fat loss as side effect from the daily 2 to 3 times ginger intake. Some of them now, adapting to the new idea of infused water, keep fresh ginger sliced into a bottle of water and keep that water for a night to infuse with the ginger and use it as their natural drinking water all day long.Keywords: Ginger, Vitamins, Hunger, Nutrient, Anti-inflammatory, Congestion, Fat Loss.
