Besides preventing stomach bloating and improving blood circulation, we have listed here the impressive health benefits of ginger that every woman should know about it:
1. Keeps breast cancer away
Breast cancer stands as the top most common female cancer in Singapore. Evidence from scientific studies concludes that ginger and its active constituents suppress the growth and induce apoptosis of a variety of cancer types including breast, skin, ovarian, colon, cervical, gastric, pancreatic and liver cancer. 1
2. Helps in relieving arthritis pain
In Singapore, 75% of Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) patients are female between the age of 20 to 45. This disorder affects one’s movement and motion in stiffness and swelling of joints. Lab studies have shown that the unique antioxidants in ginger, including gingerol and shogaol, can function as a COX-2 inhibitor that helps to relieve pain and bring improvement for all types of arthritis. These benefits extend to those with osteoarthritis too.2
3. Reduces menstrual discomforts
With anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties, studies have concluded that ginger is as effective as mefenamic acid and ibuprofen in relieving pain in women with menstrual pain. 3 Ginger also helps in decreasing Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS) symptoms, in both physical and behavioural symptoms, before and during menstruation. 4
4. Promotes healthy skin
The powerful Gingerol in ginger has been shown to stop melanogenesis (the production of melanin) and reduce pigmentation in the skin. 5 Besides that, ginger can be used to help preserve skin’s collagen as well as clear up acne and blemishes, which makes it an all-natural ingredient for anti-ageing and skin problems.
5. Burns extra fat & helps to lose weight!
Since the active ingredients in ginger boost your metabolism, it helps burn fat too! Ginger’s thermogenic effect helps to raise the temperature in your gut and trigger your body’s calorie-burning mechanism.
