Ginger Is One of the Healthiest Spices on the Planet

If you’re looking for a great and tasty spice that will satisfy your palate and help your health at the same time, then ginger is your go-to choice. As reported by Authority Nutrition, it has powerful medicinal properties that include help in digestion, reducing nausea and fighting the flu and common cold. It’s also versatile as it can be used fresh, dried, powdered or as a juice or oil.

Ginger is one of my favorite “superfood” trios, along with turmeric and carrots. Ginger is potently aromatic with a warm, "zingy" essence, which has made it one of the world's most sought-after spices. Just a few thin slivers make an incredibly healing tea, while grinding it into a powder makes it easy to sprinkle and great in every type of food, from soups to cookies to stir fries.

Ginger is known for its inflammation-fighting capabilities, as well as its ability to help in decreasing patients’ fasting blood sugar levels. It also has remarkable evidence for improving memory and cognitive function. This is one reason I recommend keeping ginger on hand in your kitchen all the time. Even as a hot tea, it releases compounds that help with cardiovascular function.

As a therapeutic, ginger reduces side effects associated with chemotherapy, including dizziness, nausea, vomiting, and cold sweating. Studies also show ginger to be protective against osteoarthritis pain and several cancers, including ovarian, colorectal, lung, and breast cancers. It’s also a good source of vitamin C, magnesium, potassium, copper and manganese.
