How to always have a lightsome heart

Ginger tea benefits on the heart are known for a long time. Ginger has been used extensively to stimulate and strengthen the heart in Chinese and Indian herbal medicine.

It has anticoagulant properties, reduces cholesterol and also regulates blood pressure.

The main responsible for this success is ginger rhizomes' content (gingerols, zingerol and shogaol), which stimulates blood circulation, activates the metabolism, helps burn fat and has a strong antioxidant action.

At the same time ginger is refreshing, fights fatigue, has vasodilator effects, activates the peripheral blood circulation (eliminates cold hands and feet symptoms), avoids the risk of blood clots, prevent cardiovascular disease, has anti-tumor properties and an overall soothing effect.

The improved blood circulation produces a better oxygenation of the brain, which makes the ginger a perfect herb for memory and concentration.

Increase fertility with ginger

Ginger's aphrodisiac properties are one of the many ginger tea benefits.

Drinking tea increases male fertility through spermatogenesis (sperm volume) and spermatozoids' motility stimulation. It is also used for erectile dysfunctions.

Ginger tea benefits - nausea and vomiting

Ginger is one of the best herbal remedies for nausea. It contains gingerols, the active substances that block the chemoreceptor trigger zone of the vomiting center.

Whether you have motion sickness (car sick, sea sick, air sick) or you feel nauseous after surgery or chemotherapy, ginger tea can help.

I know women who have used ginger for nausea during pregnancy. It's just that, sometimes, the ginger smell or taste made them nauseous. If that's not your case, it is worth trying.

Even if you feel ginger is working, be careful using ginger tea, especially in the first trimester of pregnancy and don't use it for long periods.

Besides ginger tea, you can keep a piece of ginger root under the tongue, or eat 2-3 pieces of fresh ginger stem before traveling.

# Travel sickness: 0.25-1 g dried ginger or 2-5 g fresh ginger, 1 hour before departure.

# Pregnancy: infusion with 0.25 g dried ginger in 1 cup of water, 4 times a day.
