Following on from my previous blog about green tea, I have been looking for an ingredient to combine with green tea, so as to add to its health benefits and taste. Through research and exploration I found a suitable ingredient, Ginger. Along with many other benefits some benefits of ginger include: reducing muscle pain and soreness, helping prevent cancer and improving brain function (healthline.com).
One of the main reasons why ginger should be used in green tea is because of its ability to lower muscle pain and soreness, further helping me enjoy exercise. The high levels of antioxidants found in ginger are found to be the main cause of its ability to reduce pain, by removing free radicals within the muscle cells, causing the direct pain. By combating the direct cause of pain, at a cellular level, ginger is able to help soreness while you’re training.
Through the high levels of antioxidants ginger is also seen to help prevent cancer. The ability to subdue free radicals within a cell, helps prevent cancer by stoping the mutation process cells endure before they become cancerous. Through the use of antioxidants ginger helps combat cancer by stopping the mutation of cells.
Not only does ginger help in muscular training but also in mental training, by improving brain function. By the use of bioactive compounds found in ginger the inflammatory build up in the brain because of stress is reduced, helping you to think more clearly without additional stress. By removing this inflammatory build up, the brain is able to function more effectively, resulting in improved brain function.
As well as adding a bit of ginger in you life try adding a bit of Jesus and Gods word in your life. This fulfils your soul, providing amble benefits throughout your life. Similarly said in Proverbs 13:19 NIV:
A longing fulfilled is sweet to the soul, but fools detest turning from evil.
