Pressure, the positive effects of ginger: how to take it

Among the many properties of ginger there is also that of counteracting high blood pressure. Here's how to consume it

Tasty and rich in beneficial properties: ginger is an excellent remedy against high blood pressure. For centuries this root has been used to treat sore throats, colds, nausea and joint pains, but also to improve digestion and fight hypertension. Ginger has a spicy taste and aroma, due to the presence of gingerol, a substance that behaves like a real drug and that can bring many benefits to our body.

In particular, the relationship between ginger and high blood pressure has been the subject of numerous studies. According to experts, the root of the plant is able to act on the cardiovascular system, counteracting some of the most feared and common diseases, carrying out an anti-inflammatory and antioxidant action.

In essence, ginger causes vasodilation, relaxing the muscles that are around the blood vessels, and it also makes blood circulation in the arteries much more fluid and regular, reducing blood pressure. Not only: this root is also a platelet anti-aggregator capable of blocking platelet aggregation, preventing the formation of emboli and thrombi.

After discovering the properties of ginger against hypertension, all that remains is to find out how to take it. This root lends itself to becoming the protagonist of many dishes. It can be tasted for example in the form of herbal tea, but also candied, instead of candies and chocolates. Add it to cocktails, centrifuges and smoothies, to give it a special aftertaste and take advantage of its benefits. Ginger is also excellent as an ingredient in desserts (from donuts to cakes to biscuits), it goes perfectly with first courses, soups and fresh fish.

How to choose ginger? Always buy it fresh and at the time of purchase, bet on a root that appears firm, smooth and heavy. On the market you can also find it in powder or in spice jars, usually the fresh one is found in the fruit counter inside the supermarkets.

Once at home, keep it in the fridge, closing it in a paper bag for air-free food. This will keep it for at least 3 weeks. Alternatively you can cut the ginger into small pieces and freeze it, in which case it will last over a month.
