Difficult days, but thankfully we’ve got the comfort of food.
Hello dear readers; hope you had a good week regardless?
While creating this post, I had a lot of mixed feelings judging by the happenings in the world today.
Admist all we stand tall and let nothing shake us because once our foundation is destroyed we can do.
Difficult days yeah, but we’ve got the comfort of food all day any day.
Prior to the last post we had a good ride with the exposure of ginger superpower.
Let me know in the comment section what new escapade you tried out with ginger.
Yikes! This whole thing is getting to me. How can people not feel safe? Killings and rape. Another day another hashtag. Sighs.
Can we make a ginger pepper spray? People need to feel safe! Do you agree with me on it?
Mental check! Let’s discuss ginger.
Can ginger pose a threat when it becomes too much?
Though the side effects of ginger largely occur due to its over consumption, it is important to be aware of them.
- Ginger tends to lower blood pressure so if taken in excessive quantity it could lead to a chain of lightheadness.
- If taken in large quantities, ginger can cause diarrhea. Gingerols, the active ingredients in ginger, speed up the passage of food through the intestines and may cause diarrhoea.
- Taking ginger supplements in large doses can also cause miscarriage and other complications. Though ginger is safe when used in amounts found in food, it can cause problems during pregnancy. Excess intake of ginger during pregnancy may also lead to acid reflux and heartburn.
A common ginger food is the ginger water.
This is also known as ginger tea in certain regions. Usually for weight loss, hydration, reduce cholesterol and blood sugar balancing.
Attached is how to make a ginger tea from the comfort of your home.
Be sure to avoid overdosing as the side effects are similar to that of ginger root which include heartburn, stomach ache, gas, and a burning sensation in the mouth.
To avoid overdose for menstrual cramps, 1500 mg of ginger powder daily in up to three divided doses, starting up to two days before menstruation and continuing for the first 3 days of the menstruation cycle.
Come what may, DO NOT consume more than 4 grams of ginger in any given day in any form.
I love y’all and I will see you in the next post.
I’m miss you already!
