Have you ever considered helping your body detoxing but never knew how to go about it? Or maybe you already are an experienced “detoxer” and you are just looking for the latest updates? Either way, we will show you a new way of detoxing with our Natural Ginger Flakes.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS THAT GINGER BRINGS?

The benefits of ginger as a detoxifying herb are endless. The root is rich in therapeutic properties that do wonders in our body and, thanks to its powerful compounds, it is commonly recommended in detox diet and cleansing programs.

Many studies have proven that ginger is not only one of the best detoxifying herbs, but it also offers anti-inflammatory, anti-ulcer and antioxidant solution to our health. The rhizome is the healing portion that makes the ginger so powerful.  It contains two active ingredients called gingerol and shogaol which are responsible for detoxifying and healing our body by providing anti-inflammatory effects on the gastrointestinal system when taken.

Following a detox diet on a regular basis is important because it enhances and speeds up the natural cleansing process of the body, preparing it to build strong defenses against disease and illness. Ginger has the capability to cleanse the body system by stimulating circulation, digestion, and sweating. Its digestive aiding actions help us wash out all the wastes that are built-up in the liver, in the colon, and in other organs of our body. It also helps in relieving stomach discomforts - bloating, gas, constipation, and diarrhea.

Numerous studies have proven that dried ginger contains a higher level of gingerol than fresh ginger and can, therefore, be used with confidence as a great alternative or complementary product to the latter. Mind you, not all dry ginger available on the market offer the same therapeutic properties. That’s simply because they are highly processed and are full of artificial flavorings. Here at SACO Trading Ltd, we are very proud of our Natural Ginger Flakes because it’s 100% natural, 100% artisan and no flavoring or preservatives are added.

Got a bad cold? Find out how 3 simple ingredients can help you get better naturally and effectively.

When the cold and flu season begins, Granny’s home remedies always comes to mind:

Ginger, Lemon and Honey.

However, do we really know why these 3 simple ingredients are so effective? Let’s find out:

Ginger – contains a powerful compound, known as Gingerol, which, according to an article published by the International Journal of Physiology, Pathophysiology and Pharmacology,  has anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties. In other words, if you include it in your diet, it will reduce the level of inflammation in your body and it will help you fight the free radicals present in your bloodstream. As a result, your immune system will get stronger and will fight infections more efficiently. No wonder it has been valued and used as a natural remedy for centuries.

Lemon – is an excellent source of Vitamin C, also known as acid ascorbic. On his website DoctorYourself.com, Dr Andrew Saul explains that Vitamin C is an antipyretic and a natural antibiotic, which, if given frequently and in sufficient quantity, can lower the fever by eliminating what caused it in the first place.  

Honey – has also been known for centuries for its incredible nutritional and medical value. It is rich in anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties, and several studies have proven its effectiveness in treating cough. Local natural honey is preferable to the ones we find in supermarkets, as it better preserves its properties.

Now that we have an overview of how our health can benefit from Ginger, Lemon and Honey, all we can say is that Granny is always right!

Ginger Root

Ginger is a tropical spice with a pungent taste widely used in cooking and baking.

Its principles, among which the gingerol, not only determine its distinguished aroma, but also have powerful health benefits for stomach aches, nausea, and diarrhoea for example. Although ginger is native to South East Asia, it is now cultivated in many tropical and semi-tropical areas, including West Africa, India, Australia, Japan and the Caribbean. The countries in West Africa are not large producers, however, they grow a ginger with a very high level of gingerol and an intense fragrance and flavour.
