im a shtf scenario want to be prepared person (maybe slightly paranoid)
Ginger as you know has many beneficial qualitys as on msm in the recent years.
For quite some time now we have been told "eat your 5 a day and fresh veg is best"
then i thought, if i dry this out will it still be medicinal after a couple of yrs and have the same potency
I came across this:
Long before our studies, the century-old Chinese medical book stated that the use of fresh ginger is recommended for reduction of fever, while
dried ginger is required for keeping our body healthy and warm. Unfortunately, many of us did not understand this simple fact correctly. In fact, most
traditional healers including pharmaceutical companies around the world have been using fresh ginger. That's what we have discovered.
What is the secret of dried ginger?
Fresh raw ginger contains the spicy substance called "gingerol". We came to understand that dried ginger has several times more gingerol than fresh
Gingerol helps increase immune cells in the blood vessels to protect the body from bacteria and other toxic elements. Gingerol is also known to
protect your body from contracting bacterial bronchitis.
However, you should know that gingerol is easily oxidized when grated or cooked. Thus, you must consume grated or cooked ginger immediately. We
recommend that you grate or cook ginger just before your meal.
What You Should Remember
Once again, use fresh ginger for reducing your body temperature, and use dried ginger for warming your body temperature.
Both gingers are good for your health maintenance and in preventing all kinds of diseases.
i never knew this
at first i thought its just a fitness add blah blah
but seems real after a bit more searching
to me it seems i can dry many kinds of veg and not alter the healing properties
ginger garlic and other spices is what im reading into
what do you think?
