Benefits of using dried ginger root
Ginger is a marvellous herb, with many proven benefits. When digested, it naturally warms the body, stimulates circulation & energy. Historically it has been considered an aphrodisiac, for its ability to enhance sexual vitality. These days it is favoured for its ability to help relieve nausea and is a key ingredient for many cold and flu remedies.
The health benefits of ginger are mainly attributed to its phenolic compounds, such as gingerols & shogaols. When ginger is fresh, gingerol is more potent. When it is dried, the shogaol content often becomes more abundant.
Nausea, Motion & Morning Sickness
Perhaps ginger’s most common use is for its ability to relieve nausea & vomiting. These effects are attributed to its ability to relax the body, keeping your digestive function stable & blood pressure consistent. When consumed it also helps warm, and calm the stomach, improving digestion and relieving tension.
Ginger has also been proven to be useful in alleviating cramps & pain associated with menstrual cycles. It’s believed to be because of gingers’ warming & anti-spasmodic effects.
Fevers, Cold & Flus
