Ginger is recommended as a preventive tool against colds, inflammation of the airways and the digestive system, and its anti- inflammatory, analgesic and antipyretic effects are due to gingerols, the active substances in the root.
Apart from preventing the symptoms of cold, it encourages circulation and warms the body, stimulates sweat and enhances the secretion of toxins. These are some of the reasons why ginger is often used for detoxification of the body.
You can obtain best effects if you use fresh ginger, but it can also be consumed as a tea, in compote, or in freshly squeezed juices.
Ginger is also useful in eliminating problems with the digestive system, so it should be added to meals. A drop of its essential oil in a glass of water will prevent cramps or bloating of the stomach after meals.
