Ginger is used as an effective remedy for nausea and inflammation, but…
Did you know ginger kills ovarian cancer cells? Yep, it’s true!
Researchers from the University of Michigan Comprehensive Cancer Center found that ginger not only kills ovarian cancer cells, but it also prevents them from building up resistance to treatment – which is a common problem for ovarian cancer patients.
In this study, the scientists applied a solution of ginger powder and water to ovarian cancer cells. In every single test they found the cancer cells died as a result of being in contact with the ginger solution.
The cancer cells either digested or attacked themselves or they committed suicide.
I’m a big fan of fresh ginger and I use plenty of it, especially in my green drinks. But lots of people don’t care for ginger and have a hard time eating it.
The great news is that the ginger powder they used in this study is similar to what’s sold in grocery stores. So think about it… you don’t have to eat fresh ginger if you don’t like it. You can take the powder in capsules with plenty of water. After all the powder is what was used in the study!
So if you haven’t incorporated ginger in your diet, now is a perfect time to start.
