Video: Ginger: Helps The Stomach
In these days I was traveling in Venezuela. I love the gastronomy of that country and I was struck by the way they promote cooking sauces made with herbs and / or fruits. We know that these sauces are made in the United States, as well as pastries and delicious dishes whose main ingredient is an herb or fruit. However, what surprised me most was the explanation they gave me in the market every time I picked up a jar to read its ingredients. The ginger sauce was the most recommended. They told me it was good for cooking because it helped "fix stomach problems."
Even the US National Library of Medicine and the National Institutes of Health states that "ginger oleoresin is very often present as an ingredient in digestive compounds, against cough, antiflatulence, laxatives and antacids."
In addition, its particular flavor and aroma give a delicious and mystical touch to meals and desserts. Some say it has aphrodisiac effects in men, but no studies have been done to confirm this theory. We must remember that ginger has been used in Chinese, Japanese and Hindu medicine since the 1500s. Therefore, its fame as a medicinal herb is centuries old. But, if you are going to use a natural product as a remedy for a condition, consult your doctor.
