Happy new week and a happy new month to you all. My husband and I have been on this therapy using Ginger for just 2weeks and trust me I am gradually dropping out of a size 10 dress to a size 8 and he his already feeling good about himself.
Although research shows several health benefits of Ginger, I will share with you the 5 things I have benefitted from using Ginger.
If you know me you’ll know I love trying out things on myself. So before I let you in on anything I always like to prove how effective it is. So here we are with ginger.
Ginger is a very important plant, here’s what Wikipedia says about it: Ginger is a flowering plant whose rhizome, ginger root or simply ginger, is widely used as a spice or a folk medicine. It is a herbaceous perennial which grows annual stems about a meter tall bearing narrow green leaves and yellow flowers.
My Top 5 benefits
Top 1: Ginger has been useful for me in my weight loss journey. It was quite easy to go from a size 16 to a size 10 but moving from size 10 to 8 was beginning to take longer, so I decided to try a different means and I am so glad I see results and I have also started sharing these secrets with our closed group.
Top 2: Bloating: I suffered so much bloating in the past and was almost stuck with my belly always puffed out but since I started using Ginger the way I do I can’t remember feeling bloated the past 2weeks.
Top 3: Ginger has a long history of use for relieving digestive problems such as nausea, loss of appetite, motion sickness and pain (medical news today.com)
Top 4. When I read this report from medicalnewstoday.com I really did not believe That Ginger has also been found to reduce the symptoms of dysmenorrhea (severe pain during a menstrual cycle). In one study, 83% of women taking ginger capsules reported improvements in pain symptoms compared to 47% of those on placebo. Until I tried it. So if you suffer severe menstrual pain try Ginger.
Top 5: Reduces belly fat; I wonder how myself but after I looked at myself today I realized Ginger is very good food if you are looking at reducing your belly fat.
