I love the Fall and Winter seasons because of all the lovely foods and teas which are infused with ginger and pumpkin. But did you know all the wonder benefits you can receive from ginger? Not only is it a wonderful spice to add to many dishes it is also a natural medicine. Although there are many different health benefits of ginger, it can also help those who are looking to Lose Weight. Ginger has been proven to help with breaking down and digesting carbohydrates and help to burn fat. Ginger also plays a large role in oxidative stress, which is a form of cell damage we can experience as we get older. Ginger helps to limit this process keeping your cells “younger” and our bodies stronger, functional and healthier.
Ginger can also be used to help with heart health because it can lower cholesterol and blood pressure. Ginger also has anti-inflammatory qualities which help to reduce stress on the body and inflammation in the joints. This can be very helpful for those who suffer from arthritis. Ginger can also help with your metabolic health because it helps with calorie burning. It can also help to reduce hunger cravings. Ginger can be very helpful to battle Weight Loss and battle those hunger cravings. Hunger cravings can lead to eating foods which may not provide any nutrition and can lead to weight gain.
You can purchase ginger teas at the store or you can opt to make your own. You can find fresh ginger in your produce department to make you at home ginger tea. Remember ginger is powerful and little can go a long way. Slice up some of your ginger and add it to a pot of water and bring to a boil. Once it is boiling let it boil for 10-15 minutes and strain. Let it cool down to a nice warm tolerable drinking level and enjoy!
