The Importance of Ginger for Bone Health
“People have dug up Zingiber officinale, a.k.a. the root more commonly known as ginger, for its health benefits and spicy flavour since the beginning of time (Fun fact: It’s actually in the same family as turmeric, another powerful good-for-you ingredient). But just because it’s been around awhile doesn’t mean it’s a cure-all for your health. Ginger should be used in addition to a healthy diet, exercise, and regular visits to your doctor.
Root Ginger has been recognised and used for over 5ooo years to improve health.
Recognised by the medical profession as a super food for maintaining bone and general health and for boosting the immune system and contains exceptional antioxidant properties to bridge any unmet gap of needs in the body.
In addition to the antioxidant properties extensive scientific research has shown that ginger has many other health benefits;
- Anti inflammatory and can reduce pain, swelling and tissue damage
- It enhances digestion and cures nausea.
- Toxic build up interferes with cell functioning and ginger helps us to de toxify through its alkalizing actions.
- Enhances our immune system and is very important given the news that there is an established link between Osteoporosis and heart disease.
WHY NOT SPICE THINGS UP WITH SOME GINGER TEA?
Chop up a length of root ginger and boil in a cup of water for 10 to 15 minutes.
Strain and drink with a ½ teaspoon of honey.
