Curejoy Expert James Dudley Explains:
Ginger works as an excellent stomach and digestive remedy for many reasons. Some of them are mentioned below:
. It helps improves absorption and assimilation of essential nutrients and aids in digestion by breaking down the proteins in your food.
. Ginger protects your stomach against ulcers by promoting mucus secretion, thereby reducing the effect of the acid on the stomach.
. Ginger in food, or ideally as a strong tea, helps stimulate saliva, bile and gastric juice production to aid in digestion. It is believed that phenolic compounds, primarily gingerol and shagaol, and various other volatile oils are responsible for ginger tea’s beneficial effect on our digestive system.
. Ginger tea has muscle relaxant properties that can help relieve gases trapped in the digestive system. Bloating and intestinal cramps can be caused by tension and spasms in our gastrointestinal tract. By gently relieving these constrictions, ginger tea can help release trapped digestive gas and alleviate bloating.
