Drinking black ginger tea may benefit you by:
Here are eight areas where black ginger tea has been scientifically proven to offer relief
Getting rid of bloating and gas
Ginger tea contains compounds known as gingerols and shogaols, which have been found to possess anti-inflammatory properties which help alleviate bloating. These compounds can help relax the gastrointestinal muscles, reducing bloating, gas, belching, and improving overall digestion. (Pss, combining ginger tea and matcha makes for the ultimate and fast way to banish bloating)
Alleviating acid reflux
Studies have suggested that ginger tea can be very beneficial for acid reflux in small doses by decreasing pressure on the lower part of the esophagus. In other words, ginger tea can help reduce the symptoms of acid reflux by inhibiting the relaxation of the lower esophageal sphincter (LES). The LES is responsible for preventing stomach acid from flowing back into the esophagus, and ginger's ability to keep it contracted may help reduce acid reflux symptoms.
Soothing a sore throat
Ginger tea possesses antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties, which can help soothe a sore throat caused by a common cold. It may also provide relief from coughing and congestion, and has even been studied to have potent antiviral effects against human respiratory syncytial virus and rhinovirus.
Easing an upset stomach or diarrhea
Ginger has a long history of use in traditional medicine to relieve gastrointestinal discomfort, including upset stomach and diarrhea. The active compounds in ginger tea may help reduce inflammation, inhibit certain bacteria, and regulate the digestive system, providing relief from these conditions. According to one study, drinking ginger tea for 4 weeks straight led to a 25% reduction in IBS symptoms.
Helping with healthy weight loss
Ginger tea has been associated with weight loss due to its potential thermogenic effect, which helps promote feelings of fullness, ups energy expenditure, and combats overeating. Ginger has also been studied to help boost metabolism, improve fat digestion, and reduce overall appetite – potentially aiding in weight management, according to several systematic reviews and meta-analyses of randomized controlled trials on the effect of ginger intake on weight loss.
Drinking ginger tea can help you poop when you are suffering from constipation. This is because studies have shown ginger tea can act as a natural laxative, stimulating the digestive system, alleviating cramps, and promoting bowel movements. It can help improve intestinal motility and reduce transit time, making it beneficial for individuals who often experience constipation.
Combating morning sickness
Suffering from morning sickness? You may want to consider starting off your day with a cup of ginger tea. Ginger tea has been extensively studied for its potential benefits in managing morning sickness during pregnancy. In fact, research suggests that consuming ginger in various forms, including tea, may help stop vomiting and nausea in 1 out of 4 women during the first trimester. A pregnant woman can safely drink 4-5 cups of ginger tea daily to help combat morning sickness.
Lowering high blood pressure
There has been a high quality of evidence in scientific studies that regularly consuming ginger may have a modest hypotensive effect, meaning it may help lower blood pressure. This is especially true in studies done with participants over the age of 50. However, more research is needed to fully understand the mechanisms behind this effect and determine its significance in clinical settings.
Why Japanese aged black ginger is the best type of ginger tea to drink:
A relatively new variety of ginger to the US market, aged black ginger, has emerged as a superior option, offering even greater potential health benefits. This uniquely nutrient dense and delicious ginger variety, characterized by its higher shogaol content, possesses enhanced anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, potential benefits against metabolic syndromes, and cardio-protective effects.
The potent powers of aged black ginger: why It's the ultimate choice for ginger tea
Japanese aged black ginger is a unique variety of ginger that has gained attention for its potential health benefits, surpassing those of regular ginger. It is characterized by its higher content of shogaol, a bioactive compound responsible for many of its therapeutic properties that make it so popular in Japan.
Here are 6 reasons why aged black ginger is considered an excellent choice for ginger tea:
Enhanced anti-inflammatory properties: Aged Black Ginger is believed to possess stronger anti-inflammatory effects compared to regular ginger. The increased concentration of shogaol in Aged Black Ginger may contribute to its ability to reduce inflammation in the body, potentially providing relief from various inflammatory conditions.
Greater antioxidant content: Antioxidants play a crucial role in protecting our cells from oxidative stress and damage caused by free radicals. Aged Black Ginger is reported to contain higher levels of antioxidants compared to regular ginger. These antioxidants help neutralize harmful free radicals, promoting overall cellular health and potentially reducing the risk of chronic diseases.
Potential benefits against metabolic syndromes: Research suggests that Aged Black Ginger may have a positive impact on metabolic syndromes, including diabetes. Studies have demonstrated its ability to regulate blood sugar levels, improve insulin sensitivity, and potentially reduce the risk of developing complications associated with diabetes.
Anti-inflammatory and cardio-protective effects: The compounds found in Aged Black Ginger have shown promising results in terms of cardiovascular health. They may help lower blood pressure, improve blood circulation, and reduce the risk of heart disease. Furthermore, its anti-inflammatory properties may contribute to overall heart health by reducing inflammation in the cardiovascular system.
Unique mechanisms of action: Aged Black Ginger exhibits certain mechanisms of action that set it apart from regular ginger. These mechanisms are believed to contribute to its more potent effects on overall wellness. While regular ginger is valuable in its own right, Aged Black Ginger offers additional benefits that may make it a preferred choice for individuals seeking maximum therapeutic potential.
Higher amounts of Shogaol than any other ginger tea: Shogaol, a lesser-known compound found in ginger, holds immense potential for improving circulation and promoting overall well-being. It turns out that Japanese aged black ginger has been studied to have some of the highest amounts of shogaol, which actually triggers a delightful sensation of whole-body warmth known as "poka-poka" in Japanese, which can be enjoyed at any time of the day or night.
Renowned studies have revealed that our special Aged Black Ginger boasts an astonishing 300-500 times higher shogaol content compared to regular ginger. This unparalleled concentration makes it an exceptional choice for those seeking the maximum benefits of this unique compound.
