Why Drink Keto Zone Ginger Fizz?

First, limes and lime juice offer many health benefits. It can improve skin, help fight inflammation, exhibits anti-cancer effects, may boost the immune system, and supports healthy blood sugars.

That’s a great start.

Next, ginger is a potent medicinal food. Here’s what a little ginger can do in your body.

Health Benefits of Ginger

1. Ginger Helps Fight Nausea
For centuries, ginger has been used as a nausea remedy. It’s very effective. In fact, some studies have shown it works s well as some prescription medications (1, 2). Ginger can be used for nausea due to medications, pregnancy, motion sickness, and more

Note: If you are pregnant, speak with your doctor before using large amounts of ginger.

2. Anti-Cancer Properties
Ginger contains large amounts of 6-gingerol and 6-paradol, two strong nutrients that may fight cancer cells. Lab studies have shown that these ginger-derived compounds may have inhibitory effects on various types of cancer cells (3, 4).

Gingerol is also highly anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, in addition to anti-tumor.

The current studies are promising for ginger against cancer cells; however, more research is needed to confirm how it can be used, and it’s effectiveness in humans.

3. Gingerol Supports Fight Against Infections
Gingerols also have anti-fungal, anti-viral, and anti-bacterial properties. Ginger may even prevent bacterial growth and provide anti-bacterial activity against multi-drug clinical pathogens (5). As more and more people become resistant to some antibiotics, ginger may have an important position in aiding the fight against harmful microbes.

4. Supports Heart Health
Ginger also supports heart health.

It promotes healthy cholesterol levels. One 45-day double-blind controlled clinical trial study on 45 patients with high cholesterol found ginger had a significant lipid-lowering effect compared with placebo (6). Another animal study found ginger extract lowered LDL cholesterol in a similar way to a statin drug.

5. Potent Anti-Inflammatory Agents
Every day, our bodies are under attack from free radicals and inflammation. As they build, they can become a chronic issue that leads to systemic inflammation, oxidative stress, and accelerated aging of our cells.

Unless you fight back with anti-inflammatory and antioxidant agents.

Animal studies have found that ginger’s bioactive compounds and antioxidants may inhibit inflammatory brain responses. One study from 2012 published in Evidence Based Complement Alternative Medicine studied the effects of ginger extract on 60 middle-aged women. The researchers found the ginger enhanced working memory, reaction time, and attention, commonly reported problems in this population, without any reported side effects (7).

6. Relief for Muscle and Joint Aches
The anti-inflammatory health benefits of ginger go even further! If you suffer from joint or muscle pain, ginger could help. Further, it can be used for muscle-induced pain and menstrual pain. One study of 150 women students took one gram of ginger powder per day for the first 3 days of their menstrual cycles. Ginger was found to be as effective as ibuprofen in relieving this menstrual pain.

7. 1-2 Superfood Punch with Turmeric
Ginger, and its close counterpart turmeric, are both from the Zingiberaceae family. Like ginger, turmeric has many medicinal properties that make it popular in alternative medicine. When combined, their effects can increase.

Both support reduced pain in joints and muscles. Both are healthy for the digestive system and support brain health. Together, they are truly a 1-2 superfood punch.
