The spicy ginger root contains potent substances such as gingerols, paradol, and shogaols. These compounds have antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anticarcinogenic properties that actively fight against cancer cells.
The cancer-fighting effects of ginger have been demonstrated in several clinical studies on colon cancer. The COX-1 enzyme is responsible for promoting inflammation in the digestive tract. The consumption of ginger root naturally inhibits the COX-1 enzyme.
This downregulation of inflammation in the body can help prevent cancer, as well as reducing the ability of existing cancers to migrate.
Enjoy a ginger, lemon and honey tea on a daily basis. Or finely slice fresh ginger and add it to stir fries and casseroles.
