6 grams of ginger (1 tablespoon) = 5 calories. Also has a low glycemic index

Health benefits

Ginger has been known has long been known as very effective of alleviating symptons of gastrointestinal distress. Is regarded as an excellent carminative (promotes the elimination of intestinal gas) and intestinal spasmolytic (a substance which relaxes and soothes the intestinal tract) it also has been revealed that it has antioxidant effects, such as an ability to inhibit the formation of inflammatory compounds, and direct anti-inflammatory effects. It is also been proven to be more effective than Dramamine (a common over the counter drug for motion sickness) at preventing motion sickness. Ginger is also known to have an immune boosting effect. Has been used in Chinese medicine to be mixed with brown sugar to help in menstrual relief.

Anti โ€“ inflammatory

Unlike aspirin and other anti-inflammatory drugs ginger will not inhibit muscle/ tendon/ ligament recovery, making it a perfect supplement for post workout. Ginger is best to take 20mg+ if you decide to take capsules of ginger read the label and look for the ones with the highest content of โ€œgingerolsโ€ which is the active anti-inflammatory ingredient. Tumeric is another anti-inflammatory drug very similar to ginger.

Ginger Bath

Ginger is a simple but nice remedy to sweat out and remove toxins from the body and it is best to include a bath so below are the ingredients you will need

  • 1 hot bath
  • 1 cup of fresh ginger (grated)
  • A large class of cold water (necessary)

Put the ginger in the bath and let it sit for 10 minutes then jump in. keeping your shoulders submerged for exactly 30 mins. You will sweat a lot so make sure you stay topped on your water with you glass of cold water. Remember you are trying to remove the toxins in your sweat not the water itself. After 15 โ€“ 20 minutes you will have heavy sweats for an hour or so. After you have stopped sweating take a cool shower and go to bed.

Strength Training and Ginger

In an Iranian study it is suggested that ginger supplementation boosts the number of kgs muscle mass you build with strength training and the number of kgs of fat you lose as a result

Experimental setup

The researchers divided 32 overweight males in their twenties into 4 groups

Group 1: took a placebo every day

Group 2: took 1g of ginger extract daily

Group 3: trained 3 times a week using weights and resistance training and took a placebo daily

Group 4: trained 3 times a week using weights and resistance training and took 1g ginger daily

Change in body fat

When researchers looked at how much the subjects loss it was found that group 4 seemed to do a little better than group 3


The stats show that group 4 and group 3 did equally well. But it was a small study and if the researchers had a larger group of subjects, it could be concluded that ginger helps boosts the effect of strength training
