What are the health advantages of drinking ginger tea on a regular basis?

Ginger's use isn't limited to food preparation; it also has a long history of therapeutic advantages when consumed regularly.

The ginger root is also referred to as the rhizome. It's a tangled root with light brown skin and slightly yellow, juicy flesh on the inside. Ginger root can be found anywhere that sells vegetables and fresh produce, including the fresh section of most supermarkets. 

Since the ginger root is abundant and sells for less at the flea market, I purchased more than 3 kilograms of ginger root for only Php200/USD4, as well as a bundle of lemongrass for Php45/$1. 

I'll boil the two together to make ginger and lemongrass tea, and this amount will last us several weeks.

How do you like your ginger tea? 

I prefer it to boil without the addition of lemon or honey. I also enjoy the pungent flavor of ginger, which I prepare by peeling the skin slightly and slicing it very thinly. Cook for a few minutes (3-5minutes), or until the ginger is aromatic and cooked. This is how I make my ginger tea. 

Health claims of taking ginger as food or tea. 

Ginger tea has been used for years to 

  • increase circulation and blood flow 
  • relieve stomach cramps 
  • relieve gas 
  • heartburn 
  • improve digestion and other digestive disorders
  • treat the discomfort of nausea
  • It can also lessen menstrual cramps and has been proved to 
  • help manage blood sugar
  • Drinking ginger tea after meals will assist the digestive juices to flow more freely, allowing you to avoid the concerns mentioned above.
  • It also aids in weight loss and the prevention of osteoarthritis.

Ginger also helps to lower harmful cholesterol levels by reducing the amount of cholesterol absorbed by the body. This, in turn, is beneficial to the heart because it helps to keep blood vessels free of cholesterol, lowering blood pressure and preventing atherosclerosis, both of which are important risk factors for cardiovascular disease and stroke. 

And, with the current health crisis, we are experiencing as a result of the pandemic caused by the Covid-19 virus, reduces our risk of infection, which coincides with the global flu season. 
Ginger tea can also help to relieve cold symptoms by acting as an organic antihistamine, reducing chest and nasal congestion, which causes difficulty breathing. It can also help you sweat out the bacteria and other toxins that caused your runny nose.

Ginger is high in antioxidants, which protect your body's DNA from strain and degradation. 

It is now time to utilize our natural cures, which are both effective and inexpensive.
