Ginger can help you lose weight
A US study showed that spicy foods like chilli or ginger help you get rid of excess pounds. The active ingredients capsaicin and gingerol are responsible for this effect. They trigger certain stimuli that have a positive effect on calorie consumption. But eating ginger alone is not enough. It can only support.
Sharpness helps you lose weight
Spicy food can help you lose weight. A study showed that subjects who seasoned all of their main meals with chilli reduced their cravings to salty, fatty and sweet foods.
Hot drinks are also used to reduce weight. A study by Columbia University New York shows that losing weight works with ginger. According to the researchers, it was found that subjects who consumed ginger tea were satiated more quickly and accordingly ate less.
Metabolism is activated
Certain “agitators” are responsible for the “fat killer” effect. Because chili and ginger contain the active ingredients capsaicin and gingerol, which, when consumed, trigger a heat stimulus due to their heat.
The human body responds to this with increased blood flow and sweating in order to curb the supposed overheating and to cool the body. For this, the metabolism is activated, whereby additional calories are consumed. This burns more adipose tissue.
Bulb against health complaints
The miracle bulb is not only good for losing weight, ginger also helps against diseases. According to a study, the tuber has a soothing effect on menstrual pain. Ginger is sometimes used even in cancer therapy.
According to the German Cancer Aid, the root has a convincing effect against the stomach problems associated with chemotherapy, such as nausea and vomiting.
Ginger as a home remedy
Ginger is also popular as a home remedy for bloating. The tuber works with digestive problems, diarrhea, loss of appetite and numerous other complaints. In natural medicine, the root has long been used against high blood lipid levels. Ginger also has an anti-inflammatory effect and can help strengthen the immune system.
Always use fresh ginger
Preparing a ginger tea is very simple: all you need is water and fresh ginger. The peeled ginger bulb is cut into slices, which then come into boiling water. The tea can then brew for about 15 minutes. The longer the ginger stays in it, the more flavorful the drink becomes. A little tip: with a dash of lemon juice you give the tea a fresh note.
If ginger has been used in parts of Asia for millennia, the root with the fruity-spicy note has become an integral part of modern cuisine in our latitudes in recent years. Many people know ginger as an ingredient in pumpkin soup, as part of various Thai curries, in smoothies or in the inlaid version for sushi.
Experts recommend that you always use fresh ginger and not powder. Delicious recipes with ginger can be found on the Internet. According to experts, adults should consume about two grams of ginger daily to achieve a slimming effect. (sb, ad)
