Ginger’s Role with Oxidative Stress

by Cathy Fleming 08 May 2020 0 Comments

Among the many benefits that ginger offers are its antioxidant properties.  Antioxidants help fight the free radicals (oxygen-containing molecules) in the body that cause inflammation. When you have more free radicals in your body than antioxidants, it causes oxidative stress.

Free Radicals
Free radicals can help fight infections, and antioxidants help keep the free radicals from causing any problems. If not controlled, free radicals can cause damage to your body, causing:

  • Heart Disease
  • Diabetes
  • Cancer
  • Alzheimer’s
  • High blood pressure

Ginger and Oxidative Stress
Ginger may be able to fight off oxidative stress. In a study, human tissue samples were treated with concentrations of ginger extract.  The samples treated with ginger had significantly reduced signs of oxidative stress.

An analysis of 25 separate studies found that ginger had a significant effect on both inflammation and oxidative stress markers compared to the control group that took a placebo.  

A study of 43 participants who were newly diagnosed with cancer and going through chemotherapy yielded powerful results.The patients who took ginger supplements three days before the chemotherapy showed a significant level of antioxidant activity and reduced oxidative markers compared to the placebo group.

Heart Health
Because ginger helps reduce oxidative stress, it boosts your heart health.  Ginger may contribute to improved overall heart health by reducing inflammation caused by oxidative stress.  It may reduce the risk of developing high blood pressure and heart disease.  Ginger may contribute to lowering cholesterol, reducing the risk of heart attack or stroke.  

Ginger may also help contribute to weight loss, which also reduces the risk of developing heart disease.

If you have heart disease, consult your physician before taking any ginger supplements.
