Ginger are usually used as a medicine or seasoning. Now the researchers found that taking ginger supplements can reduce inflammation in the intestine that can cause colon cancer.
Previous research shows that ginger acts as an anti-inflammatory drugs in mice. This can prevent the formation of tumors when the animals were exposed to chemicals that cause colon cancer.
Research is now updated with the human studies. The study was conducted by asking 30 healthy people to consume 20 grams of powdered ginger or placebo capsules for a month. According to the chairman of the research, Prof. Suzanna Zick, “The amount is equal to two tablespoons of powdered ginger root. Maybe it’s not the average amount of consumption of people every day. But in India, China, and Japan, they consume large amounts every day. ”
Tissue samples from the participants were taken before and after the research to find chemicals that cause inflammation of the colon. “Ginger can reduce inflammation in the intestinal tissue,”said Prof. Zick. “We know that increased inflammation, chronic inflammation in the intestinal tissue injury is strongly associated with pre-cancer, cancer or polyps,” he said.Tagged with: Cancer, Colon Cancer, Ginger, ginger colon cancer,
