The popular spice can significantly harm the body. Despite the widespread benefits of ginger, which is added as a spice to various dishes and simply drunk with tea, especially in the autumn period of exacerbation of infections and vitamin deficiency, it can be very dangerous to health.
Fresh ginger should not be consumed regularly and in large quantities, as it irritates the mucous membranes of the mouth and throat. Unusual foods can be difficult for the body to perceive because of the tingling sensation. But this is only at first glance.
In fact, ginger consumption can result in stomach cramps, bloating, and gas.
“Active compounds that are beneficial to health can also cause gastrointestinal upset when consumed in high doses, usually in the form of food supplements rather than whole foods,” the scientists noted.
