Discover the surprising benefits of ginger and ginger candy!

It might seem ironic to tie ginger candy to health benefits. However, healthy sweets exist! Ginger has a long history of helping people combat various health issues. For example, people often use ginger root and tea to solve digestive problems. During the holidays, people use multiple modes of travel that can cause stomach sickness; people also tend to overindulge in food and drink. Sure, ginger candy satisfies a sweet tooth, but it can also be a help when you feel under the weather.  

Ginger Candy can Help Fight Germs

Fresh ginger helps rid your body of harmful bacteria. If you include ginger in your everyday meals and water, you’ll reap the health benefits. Ginger fights Shigella and E. Coli. 

Calms Nausea

Do you experience frequent morning sickness due to pregnancy? Do you suffer from sea sickness or motion sickness? If so, ginger might help calm nausea by eliminating extra intestinal gas. Check the aisle at your local pharmacy, and you’ll see that many remedies for motion sickness contain ginger. If you’re traveling soon, you might want to pick up some ginger candy from us. 

Lowers Glucose Levels 

Various health organizations and publications, such as Healthline and the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), verify that ginger can teach your body how to use insulin and lower blood sugar. Ginger also has a low glycemic index, meaning that it breaks down slowly to form glucose and doesn’t spike blood sugar levels. However, remember to consume ginger candy only in moderate doses. You should also know that we offer sugar-free candies if you’re concerned about spiking blood sugar levels. Still, it’s best not to overindulge in these treats. 

Helps with Arthritis

Ginger has anti-inflammatory properties that help relieve many illnesses from the common cold to arthritis, particularly osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. The root can ease the pain and swelling if you take it in tea form, include it in a meal, eat it as a candy, or use in a compress on the affected part of the body. 

Aids Dental Health 

Did you know that ginger can brighten teeth and prevent bacteria from forming in the mouth? The fewer bacteria that develop, the less risk of periodontal disease. Try eating ginger at least every other day.
