Ginger and moringa have been used as natural remedies against numerous ailments for a long time. Both have unique properties which make them ideal against one disease or condition or another, but a combination of the ingredients is highly effective against almost any kind of ailment.
Here are the main health benefits of both ingredients:
Moringa health benefits
Moringa is a tree native to India and has been used as a remedy against various health problems in the Ayurveda medicine for centuries. Here’s what it can help you with:
Besides reducing inflammation, moringa contains nutrients such as magnesium, copper, iron and calcium that can feed your muscles and bones and prevent inflammatory conditions.
Assists in the prevention of cancer
The so-called “Tree of life” contains a lot of benzyl isothiocyanate, a compound that might assists in the prevention of cancer. According to experts, cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy can use moringa to relieve the side-effects and go through the process easier.
Regulates your cholesterol levels
Animal studies have shown that moringa works similarly to statins, but without the side-effects. Drink moringa leaves tea more often in order to keep your cholesterol levels in check.
Thanks to their analgesic effects, moringa leaves have been used against headaches, migraines and different kinds of pains for centuries.
High blood pressure
The leaves of the tree contain isothiocyanate glycosides and thiocarbamate, compounds which can control your blood pressure and relieve numerous cardiovascular problems.
Moringa can prevent the rise of stomach acid and cure ulcers naturally and without side-effects.
Protects the liver
Moringa tea can be used to heal the liver and protect it from any kind of problem.
Thanks to the high iron content, moringa leaves can treat anemia and similar blood disorders.
Ginger health benefits
Ginger is a root we commonly use as a spice, but it also has incredible health benefits and can treat digestive diseases, colds, the flu, coughs and even assists in the treatment of diabetes and cancer. Here’s how to use it to improve your overall health:
Stops motion sickness
If you’re feeling dizzy when you hit the road, you can prevent it by eating a small piece of ginger a few hours before the trip. Drinking ginger tea regularly will also prevent motion sickness and help you travel without any problems.
Treats the side-effects of chemotherapy
Although not a cancer remedy, ginger can help you relieve the symptoms of chemotherapy. Consume a piece of ginger to reduce the risk of vomiting and boost your immune system.
Reduces morning sickness
In case you’re pregnant and want to stop the morning sickness, you only need to eat a bit of ginger or drink a cup of ginger tea a day. However, don’t go overboard with it, as ginger may induce abortion.
Treats digestive problems
Ginger is great for treating digestive problems such as nausea, vomiting, constipation and ulcers as it has the ability to boost the digestion and balance the level of liquids in your stomach.
Here’s how to prepare a tea made of moringa and ginger:
- 10 moringa leaves
- 85 gr. of fresh ginger
- A teaspoon of honey
- 4 cups of water
Wash the ginger root well and cut it into slices, then boil the pieces in 4 cups of water for 10-15 minutes and add the moringa leaves. Cover the pot and let the mixture steep for 5 minutes, then strain the tea and drink a cup of it. Regular consumption of the mixture will reinforce your immune system and help you defeat numerous ailments.
