Especially, ginger tea can make one’s morning not only delicious and refreshing, but also can offer you various health benefits. Do you know what the health benefits are? Earth’s Wisdom will tell you today.

Ginger is a rhizome belonging originally to Asia. It has a pungent taste and has been used for thousands of years for culinary and medicinal purposes in countries like India and China. Its root consists of oils that offer various therapeutic advantages that have been recognized by almost all modern researchers and doctors.

As such ginger can be consumed in various ways, but is especially enjoyable in the tea form. You just have to take a teaspoon or two of freshly grated ginger or 2 grams of powdered ginger and add it to 1 cup of water and boil it and let it steep for 10 minutes. Strain the tea and enjoy! You can get the various health benefits in a tasty way. Here are some.

1. Treats Respiratory Tract Diseases

Respiratory system is exposed to various bacteria and viruses and so, is prone to infections. Fresh ginger tea can fight these microbes and keep cough and flu at bay. Ginger has been found effective against streptococcus. Thus, if you are suffering from strep throat, try ginger tea for a few days, before visiting your doctor to get antibiotics prescribed.

2. Improves Digestion

You might know many other natural remedies for your bloating and abdominal discomfort, but you should add ginger tea to your list. Ginger tea empties your stomach faster after eating according to studies. It has also been proved that ginger also helps to break down and expel intestinal gas, thereby relieving pain and bloating. Ginger has been used for thousands of years for improving digestion. However, it should be consumed in moderation because some people’s stomach lining can get irritated due to its intensity.

3. Fights Infection

Ginger contains potent compounds including gingerol with which it fights bacterial infections effectively.  Gingerol stops the growth of bacteria. Ginger together with garlic is an effective remedy against bacteria since many strains of bacteria are becoming resistant to first-line antibiotics.

4. Treats Nausea in Pregnant Women

Ginger tea is extremely useful to treat nausea as well as morning sickness in pregnant women. Plus, it’s safe in pregnancy. Even chemotherapy patients who feel nauseated experience a relief with ginger tea. Also if you are planning a road trip or cruise, it’s a good idea to carry ginger tea with you to avoid pukes during travel.

5. Alleviates Menstrual Cramps

Menstrual pain is sometimes quite serious and makes life difficult for some women. In such a case, ginger tea brings a ray of hope. One study has shown that ginger supplements were as effective in alleviating menstrual cramps as common analgesics such as mefenamic acid and ibuprofen.

6. Decreases the Risk of Heart Disease

Heart disease is the main cause of death among American women and men and it’s essential to reduce the risk of heart disease. Ginger tea has been found to reduce levels of risk factors for heart disease in the body. A study showed that the ApoB to ApoA-I ratios were lowered by 28% due to eating ginger. There was also a reduction in oxidized lipoprotein by 23%. In another study, cholesterol levels were found to be reduced due to ginger consumption.

7. Alleviates Muscle Pain

Ginger is known for having anti-inflammatory properties and can reduce muscle pain over time. It also has analgesic properties and works as a pain-killer. However, remember that you won’t find immediate relief. The pain will be slowly reduced if you keep taking ginger tea regularly and on one fine day, it will go, permanently!

So, have you made up your mind to include ginger tea in your daily diet?
