Ginger: characteristics and properties

The use of ginger as a form of support for the proper functioning of the body has been practiced for many years. Reading the various characteristics of this plant, one can repeatedly come across the information that the plant is a rich source of numerous active ingredients with a valuable effect on the daily diet. No wonder. In ginger roots you can come across a high content of vitamins, minerals, folic acid and other beneficial substances.

One of the main properties of ginger is the warming effect. Adding to this the effect of the plant on the reduction of swelling (by intensifying the removal of tissue water) and stimulation of the digestive system (e.g. relieving flatulence, better digestion, diastolic effect), it can provide real support during the period of weight loss. Ginger extracts standardized for the presence of essential oils and resin substances (especially gingerol and zingerone) can help to control the correct body weight and facilitate shaping of a slim body shape.

Warming up properties and the elimination of the swelling are important for the structures of the musculoskeletal system. Such a comprehensive action can work well in the context of sports injuries. The damage often favours the development of inflammation, which can lead to the development of painful ailments after time. The inclusion of ginger in the daily diet may also prove beneficial for:

  • reducing nausea and increasing appetite,
  • valuable influence on the condition and functioning of the blood and cardiovascular system,
  • the functioning of the immune system,
  • physical activity, concentration and condition of the respiratory system
