\nA few of my favorite “herbs”, Zingiber officinale (ginger) and Camellia sinesis (green tea), have recently received positive attention in the medical literature with regard to cancer. For starters, two studies published in 2011 have confirmed the efficacy of ginger root in minimizing chemotherapy-induced nausea. A third, and much more surprising trial, reports that “whole ginger extract” possesses potent prostate cancer (PC) fighting activity.
\n
\nThis intriguing discovery is based on an in vitro and in vivo experiment conducted in an animal model of PC. Arguably, green tea has an even more impressive track record as a proposed natural chemopreventive agent. Some of the research has examined green tea as a stand alone remedy. Other inquires have tested it in combination with various natural substances such as curcumin and the trace mineral selenium. Now, a population study involving 60,567 Chinese men reveals that those who drank green tea regularly (more than 3 times/week) demonstrated a 46% lower risk of developing colorectal cancer. In fact, the researchers determined that there was a 12% decline in colorectal cancer risk for every cup of green tea consumed daily. However, it’s important to note that the observed protection only applied to non-smokers.
\n
\nThese promising findings are part of the reason why a new, 3 year study will evaluate whether taking a concentrated green tea extract can prevent colon polyps in a large group of active seniors. To be clear, nobody is claiming that ginger and green tea present a cure for cancer, but they’re certainly a couple of herbal ingredients worth keeping an eye on\r\n \r\n

\r\n \r\n I love and have ginger tea. I also have green tea. I also have green tea with ginger. Seems to be a popular combination.
\n
\nIf you are using fresh ginger, be sure to let it dry first. Drying cracks the cell walls, releasing the active and beneficial constituents.
\n
\nNot advisable for people on blood thinners, due to enzymes and gingerol, however the green tea might compensate. Gingerol has the same structure as aspirin. Here\'s a situation. Ginger has a strong protein digestive enzyme - strongest in the plant family. Tannin, from the tea, interferes with protein digestion. Ginger is an antacid, and should not be eaten or drunk with a meal containing protein. Think on that for a while. Hint: you can balance it out with the addition of apple cider vinegar.
\n
\nDid you know that turmeric and ginger are related? They are in the same family. Each of these are most likely the most powerful anti-inflammatory spices available.\r\n
