The health benefits of ginger are astonishing. It is more effective against bacterial staph infections than antibiotics, it can kill cancer cells, it can resolve brain inflammations, it can fight radiation damage, and it can ease or cure a variety of gut problems.
The compounds in ginger responsible for its health benefits may include shogaol, zingerone, and gingerols; however, trying to find the active ingredient in a herb and use it alone tends to diminish its effects and remove balancing components.
Gaia Health has assembled a list of ginger’s beneficial properties, which you can take a look at, at the link below. According to that website:
“The range and severity of conditions that ginger can help is stunning, and the degree of effectiveness is even more amazing. It's time for modern medicine to take a step back and ask itself how it got on such a wrong track. When drugs and treatments that are less effective and also full of adverse effects are used instead of first looking to a natural treatment like ginger, then surely a wrong turn has been taken.”
