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 ginger.
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.
