Food combinations and cooking methods, ginger Part 2

Ginger can be consumed naturally, in herbal tea or in the form of candied fruit or it can also be associated with turmeric to increase its anti-inflammatory properties
Ginger, scientific name Zingiber officinale, is a root with important beneficial properties. It is in fact anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and digestive, protects the heart and the immune system. But how can ginger be taken to maximize these properties? In today's post we see the most important food combinations and healthy preparations with ginger.

Fresh, candied or herbal tea

Natural or candied ginger is an excellent ally against nausea. Moreover, if grated fresh on foods, such as fish, vegetables or even fruit salads, ginger helps keep under control blood sugar, LDL cholesterol, also called bad cholesterol, and triglycerides in addition to strengthening the immune system (Lete et al, Integr Med Insights, Mar 2016 - Pourmasoumi et al, Phytomedicine, Apr 2018). After heavy meals, you can use fresh ginger because this special root will help digestion by stimulating the production of bile (Yamahara et al, J Ethnopharmacol, May 1985). You can eat a little slice of fresh ginger, pure, or you can take it in the form of herbal tea. Bring a cup of water to the boiling, remove from heat and add 1 cm of sliced ginger root, leave to brew for 15 minutes then drink.

Ginger and turmeric

The combination of these two spices enhances the antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. This mix finds application in case, for example, of autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis. In fact, the combination of ginger and turmeric decreases inflammation but also acts on possible complications often observed in case of rheumatoid arthritis such as kidney problems or an increased risk of developing cardiovascular diseases (Ramadan et al, Int J Rheum Dis, Apr 2013). To eat these spices together you can, for example, prepare a mix by grating the spices in equal parts and add this seasoning to tofu, vegetables or soups, add also a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil and ground black pepper to increase absorption of the ingredients. Alternatively, you can prepare a powerful herbal tea. Slice 1 cm of ginger and 1 cm of fresh turmeric. Infuse in a cup of boiling water for 15 minutes, then filter and drink.
