Many know the innumerable properties and nutrients that this food has, but what few take into account is that not everyone should consume it because it has its contraindications.
Ginger is a powerful antioxidant and has many anti-inflammatory properties, as well as accelerating metabolic processes and strengthening the immune system.
Despite all its virtues, this food should not be consumed by people who have problems with the gallbladder and certain problems with the thickness of the blood, according to the nutritionist.
“Ginger can increase the effect of anticoagulant medications as it has an anticoagulant effect in itself. In addition, ginger can have a negative effect on gallbladder diseases, as it increases bile flow. If you have any acute inflammatory changes in the stomach mucosa, it is also best not to abuse this product,” the specialist warned in an interview.
She added that those who do not have these contraindications can consume this food in different ways and without taking away its properties.
