Clinical studies have suggested that ginger:
1. May help settle the stomach and reduce nausea.
2. May help reduce muscle pain and soreness.
3. Ginger is a powerful antioxidant that may help reduce stress-related damage to the body and cells.
4. Ginger may help support the immune system by activating white blood cells called "T-cells" which play a large role in adaptive immunity. T-cells seek out and attack invading pathogens to keep the body functioning properly.
5. Ginger may help reduce blood sugar by inhibiting hepatic phosphorylase, an enzyme responsible for glycogen break-down. Blood sugar levels rise when glycogen breaks down, so inhibiting this enzyme may help with the rise of sugar levels.
6. Gingerol possesses strong anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties.
The above research also applies to the health benefits of ginger tea, the uses of ginger, and ginger shot benefits.
