Health Benefits of Ginger

According to whfoods.org ginger provides a lot of health benefits.

Historically, ginger has a long tradition of being very effective in alleviating symptoms of gastrointestinal distress. In herbal medicine, ginger is regarded as an excellent carminative (a substance which promotes the elimination of intestinal gas) and intestinal spasmolytic (a substance which relaxes and soothes the intestinal tract). Modern scientific research has revealed that ginger possesses numerous therapeutic properties including antioxidant effects, an ability to inhibit the formation of inflammatory compounds, and direct anti-inflammatory effects.

According to this site ginger is good for gastrointestinal relief and especially help with morning sickness in pregnancy. Its anti-inflammatory effects are helpful for arthritis sufferers. There is evidence that ginger may inhibit the growth of colon cancer cells and may kill ovarian cancer cells. Like organic coffee, ginger has been shown to boost immune function as well.

Health Benefits of Organic Coffee

We have written many times about the health aspects of organic coffee.

Antioxidants are responsible for the positive health aspects of organic coffee. Antioxidants in organic coffee are naturally occurring chemicals that impede the breakdown or oxidation of other chemicals. By impeding oxidation in various chemical and enzyme systems of the human body organic coffee antioxidants produce a number of positive health effects. For example, a naturally occurring antioxidant, trigonelline is found in coffee beans. When good organic coffee is roasted this chemical breaks down forming another useful antioxidant, methylpyridium. Recent scientific research shows us that methylpyridium increases the activity of phase II enzymes in the human body and higher levels of phase II enzymes are protective against the development of colon cancer. Thus the health aspects of organic coffee include the fact that more organic coffee can lead to less colon cancer.

Other health aspects of organic coffee include the fact that antioxidants have the ability to protect nerve cells and even reduce the incidence of diabetes. Research tells us that coffee drinkers can have an up to fifty percent reduction in the incidence of Type II diabetes, a disease that affects 20 million Americans. Beside the fact that more organic coffee can lead to less diabetes organic coffee antioxidants have the ability to reduce the risk of prostate cancer and even tooth decay.

The list of health benefits of organic coffee goes on and on. Organic green coffee with ginger is just one more way to enjoy the taste and benefits of coffee with a little added zip.
