THE POWER OF GINGER WATER
To start with, potassium is good for your normal heart beat and your normal blood pressure. The high amount of antioxidants is also known to help with heartburn. Then, the ginger root helps to fight off migraines because of its ability to calm down upset stomach and nausea, which are some symptoms of migraines. The blockage of prostaglandins stops the muscle contractions that bring on migraines too.
The active constituent of the ginger – gingerol – is the carrier of its anti-inflammatory properties that bring almost instant relief with joint and muscle pains. All these terrific actions coupled with the antioxidants can significantly diminish the pain associated with chronic conditions such as arthritis.
Especially, the ginger water is a simple, healthy and delicious way to get the “full basket” of benefits in the fewest possible steps.
So, if you are a victim of those awful migraine attacks, heartburn, muscle or joint pain, then do check out the recipe below – it takes less than 10 minutes to prepare it!
