Ginger Lowers Blood Sugar,
Cholesterol & Pain

Ginger has been used for centuries. It’s one of the most well-known spices when it comes to natural home cures. The most popular use for ginger as a home remedy is probably its use for nausea. Ginger naturally settles the stomach. It’s the secret behind why your grandma suggested ginger ale when you were not feeling well.  By the way, you can make your own healthy ginger ale with sparkling water, a tablespoon of ginger juice, and stevia to taste.
Ginger has been shown to have anti-inflammatory properties. One study found that people who took 2 grams of ginger a day saw improvement in muscle pain over the course of 11 days. Another study focused on osteoarthritis pain. Once again, researchers saw improvement in terms of pain for patients who took a ginger extract.
In addition to its anti-nausea and pain management benefits, ginger has also been associated with the following:

There have also been studies linking it to the possible improvement of brain activity and potentially as a way to prevent some forms of cancer. Research into this powerful herb continues, but it’s already proven itself as a worthwhile addition to any diet.

How to Get More Ginger Into Your Diet

The strong taste of ginger puts some people off using it as an everyday spice, but there are plenty of ways to fit it into your diet.


The easiest way to get copious amounts of fresh, raw ginger into your diet is by adding it to your juice recipes.  (See the recipe below.) Those people who are new to adding ginger to their juices may find even a small amount quite overpowering. However, over time, the more you use it, the more you’ll love it.  You may find that juices without ginger just don’t have the kick you want. Adding ginger to your juices gives them a zingy, fresh, spicy flavor. I love this in the morning, since I don’t drink coffee. It wakes me up! I can feel my whole body becoming energized with the ginger.

If I ever start to come down with a cold, my go-to recipe to kick-start my immune system and fight-back is the ‘lemon ginger blast.’ Take a couple of lemons, a large chunk of ginger, a couple of carrots, a peeled orange (omit if you are sugar sensitive), and a lime. Some of my other favorite recipes include celery, apple, and ginger, and carrots, beet, and ginger. Make the whole process easier by making bags of fresh fruit, veggies, and ginger ahead of time. Keep them in the fridge ready to be juiced each morning, or whenever you’re in need of a little spice in your life.

Stir-Fry Veggie

A little ginger goes a long way and it makes the perfect complement for stir-fry vegetables and lean meats. Simply grate a small amount of ginger into your pan as you’re cooking along with fresh garlic and the combination will bring out the best in your vegetable dish. 

Ginger Tea or Lemonade

Making ginger tea or a ginger-infused lemonade or limeade is another super simple way to increase the amount of ginger you consume. This allows you to tailor how much ginger you want based on personal taste. 

Ginger Extracts

While getting your ginger by actually using the spice is preferred, the taste simply isn’t for everyone. If you’re simply not a fan of the taste, but want more ginger in your diet, consider a tincture or extract. These can offer the same benefits without needing to use the spice as often. 

Ginger for Life

These simple steps will make it easy for you to gain the benefits of ginger. At the same time, you’ll be able to explore all the different foods ginger can complement. From using it to season vegetables to creating glazes and marinates for meats, ginger is a versatile and delicious way to boost your health through clean eating.
