September 4, 2013

Juicing is one of the many healthy practices that more and more people consider incorporating in their daily lifestyle. Juicing is actually a very good way of varying one’s usual diet. More so, if a person usually has a toxic, busy and fast- paced schedule, juicing is the perfect way to stock up on one’s needed vitamins and nutrients without having to endure the complications and intricacies of cooking. One can concoct his/ her own juice at home with the help of a juicer or stop over at a local juice bar or supermarket for the needed fix.

Ginger is dubbed as one of the world’s healthiest foods. This plant is usually a key component in most dishes because of its special distinct flavor and aroma that very well improves the taste of the food. More so, it is also a widely available root crop available all year round in most supermarkets and grocery stores. Aside from being an excellent ingredient in dishes, ginger has also started gaining popularity because of its wonderful results when made into juice drinks.

One of the oldest and most known health benefits of ginger is its effectiveness in alleviating gastro- intestinal pains. It has the ability to eliminate gases and spasms in the stomach, soothing any bothersome issues surrounding the intestinal tract. It accelerates the flow of food from the stomach to the small intestines, avoiding impurities from overstaying inside the stomach and improving one’s digestion. Also, according to some studies, ginger is also known to do wonders for one’s seasickness and other motion sicknesses. Ginger reduces any unwanted symptoms of motion sicknesses such as, nausea, dizziness, vomiting, cold sweating, etc.

Another health benefit of juicing ginger is the anti- inflammatory characteristics of the plant. Ginger juice can help aid inflamed joints and reduce other body pains that one might suffer from. Ginger has the right amount of anti- oxidants to boost the flow of fresh blood. Cancer patients have also developed their love for ginger juice.  The concoction has the ability to prevent, as well as kill cancer cells. More importantly, ginger is known to slow down the development of breast cancer cells. Another disease that can benefit from ginger juice is the blood- related illnesses. Patients suffering from high blood pressure can benefit from ginger because it can make the blood thinner, lowering one’s blood pressure in an instant. At the same time, ginger also works wonders for people with high cholesterol. Ginger is known as a reliable agent for cholesterol reduction because of its ability to remove unwanted obstruction in the blood vessels. When these blood vessels are blocked, a patient has a huge chance of experiencing heart attack. However, with the help of regular consumption of ginger juice, the person reduces the risks of experiencing these diseases.

Aside from being a good agent for serious conditions, ginger can also be the cure for common minor diseases such as the colds. Ginger has antiviral properties that help fight the common colds and flu. By simply mixing a bit of ginger with hot water, an instant relief can already be concocted for a clogged nose. A sore throat and immense coughing can also be cured with a simple ginger juice and honey. Also, a ginger juice can serve as preventive medicine for the mentioned viral sickness.

A daily dose of a ginger juice can also improve one’s resistance and well- being. It makes the body stronger and tougher against illnesses and reduces the feeling of fatigue.

Ginger juice might taste off, especially for first- time drinkers, but one can easily fix this by mixing it with other flavors such as honey.
