Health Benefits of Ginger – Infographic

I love adding fresh ginger to my meals, juices and teas. Ginger also has many benefits.

Health Benefits of Ginger


1. Gastrointestinal Relief


Many studies have supported ginger’s stomach-soothing effects. A study conducted in 2009 researched 644 cancer patients and found that taking ginger supplements decreased post-chemotherapy nausea by 40%.


Ginger also reduces all symptoms associated with motion sickness including dizziness, nausea, vomiting, and cold sweating.


2. Anti-Inflammatory Effect


Ginger may also help reduce chronic pain, by lowering your levels of hormones that induce inflammation. A study published in 2005, suggests that ginger could lessen pain more effectively than non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs.

Ginger contains anti-inflammatory compounds called gingerols. These substances are believed to explain why so many people with osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis experience reductions in their pain levels and improvements in their mobility when they consume ginger regularly.


3. Immune Boosting Actions


Ginger can not only be warming on a cold day, but can help promote healthy sweating, which is often helpful during colds. A good sweat may do a lot more than simply assist detoxification.


 4. Protection against Colorectal and Ovarian Cancer


In lab tests, scientists have showed that ginger extract may slow the growth of colorectal and ovarian cancer cells, as well as protect against Alzheimer’s disease.

What Our Clients Say*

During my FitLife transformation, I lost 70 pounds! That's why I signed up for the protocol, but the most exciting result is that I found ME in the process. I had been hiding under a pile of pounds, self-doubt, and grief! FitLife changed my life and I knew I had to share it with others.

-Lynne, Longwood FL

I started with Fitlife back in 2011-2012…I wrote into Fitlife asking for an extreme amount of help. I was 300 pounds, with high cholesterol, and Drew helped me transform my life. I lost over 130 pounds and I no longer have high cholesterol. Not only did I lose weight, so did my husband, who lost over 70 pounds!
