Ginger’s health properties are well known all around the world.
For many years, people used ginger both as spice and as a remedy for various illnesses. Today, many scientific studies have confirmed the great power of ginger in cancer treatment.
The Journal of Toxicology and Food Chemistry reported that ginger contains two substances, known as gingerols and paradoles, which help the prevention of cancer.
In 2003 during a conference of Cancer Prevention Research, scientists demonstrated that ginger can prevent colorectal cancer.
In 2015, The Journal of Nutrition published a story according to which ginger can not only prevent, but alo destroy colon cancer cells.
Preventing ovary infections can result in successfully preventing ovarian cancer. According to a study published in the “BMC Complementary and Alternative Medicine”, ginger root contains active ingredients with powerful anti-angiogenic properties, which can efficiently prevent the development of cancer.
Moreover, according to a study conducted by a scientist from the University of Michigan at the American Association for Cancer Research, ginger can eliminate cancer cells and is even a better alternative than chemotherapy, plus ovarian cancer do not develop resistance to it.
Ginger treatment may cause mild side effects and leads to less toxicity than the conventional treatments.
According to a study published in the British Journal of Nutrition, ginger extract can successfully prevent the growth of prostate cancer cells. Researchers suggest a dose of 100 mg ginger per kilo of body weight.
The results of the study also show that ginger extract reduces the tumor growth by 56%, and unlike conventional treatments, it does not affect the development of healthy cells in the body.
Studies have also proved that ginger has anti-carcinogenic activity “in vivo” or “in vitro” in the therapeutic management of prostate cancer in humans. Same goes for ovarian cancer.
Another great thing about ginger treatment Is that it only affects cancerous cells, leaving the healthy ones alone.
Recommended dosage for daily consumption of ginger is anything up to 4 grams, while pregnant women should not take more than 1mg daily.
