Anita's Healthy Tips

Ginger is one of my very favorite foods that I eat on a daily basis. There are so many reasons to use this amazing spice and with cold and flu season looming just around the bend, I thought it would be a good time to talk about it’s health benefits and uses.

The Many Properties of Ginger

I like to use ginger because it tastes great and it has anti-inflammatory and anti-viral effects in the body. Gingerols are the potent anti-inflammatory component in ginger responsible for reducing pain and increasing mobility.

When consumed on a regular basis, people with osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis may experience less joint pain and find that it’s easier to move around. Use freshly minced ginger root in sauces when making stir fries or grated on top of hot cooked rice.
