The Health Benefits of Ginger
Circulation Stimulator - Studies at Cornell University revealed that gingerols, an active ingredient in ginger, prevent abnormal blood coagulation, which improves circulation and guards against heart attacks. While improving circulation, ginger reduces blood cholesterol levels by improving liver function.
Digestive - Called “The Great Medicine” by ancient Indian vaids, ginger has been shown to improve gastric mobility (i.e. it helps push food and waste through the digestive system) and hinders the absorption of cholesterol.
Aphrodisiac - Ginger has been used in Eastern medicine as a libido stimulant for centuries. It is thought that libido is improved thanks to ginger’s effects on improving circulation and blood flow and increasing energy levels.
