Ginger tea is one of the things that probably every Indian grew up with. At least for myself, travelling back through the memory tunnel I can see a cup of or a small glass of ginger tea always giving me instant reliefs from the ailments like cold, flu and sore throat and lifting my mood up. Along comes the memories of my granny and my mom who would pamper me with ginger tea time to time especially during the exam times to protect me from catching cold.

Ginger To Prevent Cold

Ginger root is a storehouse of antimicrobial and antifungal compounds that works against any ailments. When infused in hot tea ginger releases the compounds called gingerol and protease, that immediately brings about warmth and comfort in you ( especially if you are soaked and shivering ) and gives rise to cardiovascular circulation. The drink also helps a good deal to alleviate the respiratory symptoms associated with environmental allergies.

Ginger To Prevent Indigestion

Ginger is also known for its carminative effects to help settle stomach disorders and nausea. A rich source of vitamin C and minerals like magnesium, potassium, copper and manganese this native of South and South-East Asia is also a common spice in many food preparations for its unique pungent taste.   

Ginger To Prevent Cancer And Osteoarthritis Pains.

It is also very interesting to find the effects of ginger in reducing the side effects of chemotherapy, including dizziness, nausea, vomiting and cold sweating. Osteoarthritis and other joint pains and several types of cancers including ovarian, colorectal, lung and breast cancers can be prevented to some extent by regular consumption of ginger.

A word of caution

Ginger or its drink is not recommended during pregnancy without consulting your doctor. Also it is not recommended for those who have a history of gallstones, or for those who are preparing for some kind of surgery. Drinking excessive ginger tea may lead to gastrointestinal bleeding and symptoms of blood disorders such as hemophilia

Different Preparations Of Ginger Tea

The spicy beverage has natural popularity throughout Asia, probably due to easy availability of Ginger, but even in the other parts of the world it is equally popular. Some like ginger steeped in hot water without tea leaves and served with honey and lemon.

Generally it’s taken hot but with exceptions, when it is made to cool down before drinking. Some even mix a teaspoon of organic powder ginger in a gallon of iced tea and sip from it. In China it is usually steeped with brown sugar and in Korea the ginger in the ginger tea is first sweetened and treated with honey.
