Ginger is a tasty, warming spice that offers numerous medicinal benefits from its gingerols, which is the oily resin from the ginger root that offers powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. Israeli researchers have found that it offers dramatic effects for heart health, including reducing cholesterol levels, preventing the oxidation of LDL, or “bad” cholesterol, and preventing atherosclerosis.
There are also many different things, including turmeric, which can help reverse its progress before it’s too late. Curcumin, a powerful compound found in turmeric, helps to improve the function of the endothelium, which is the lining of the blood vessels. An endothelial dysfunction is a significant factor in this disease as it much more difficult for the endothelium to regulate blood clotting, blood pressure, and other essential processes.
