Ginger: The Best Benefits of Medicinal Plants
Does drinking ginger cause a rise in pressure?
On the contrary, it has been scientifically proven that ginger reduces the pressure relatively and does not raise it, but has been used as a drug for hypertension in the past centuries.
Ginger works to reduce pressure and slow the heart rate by closing the calcium channels on which the heart muscles and blood vessels depend by constricting just like the effect (verapamil medicine) but it reduces the release of phenylephrine in the blood and this causes relative expansion of the blood vessels and gives a false feeling Warm because it does not preserve the heat of the body but it is dispersed quickly, so the person begins to feel colder than before eating ginger if it is not close to a permanent source of heat. However, this low-pressure effect is not enough to be used medically as a treatment because it is very limited to not exceed 5 mm of mercury in systolic.
But this decrease may be very clear in those who have a very slender strength and have chronic hypotension they suffer from so ginger is the straw that broke the back of the camel and suffers from dizziness after drinking ginger
Many patients ask that their pressure rises after ginger. We can assure them that this is not the chemical effect of ginger, but their pressure may be volatile or uncontrolled and have increased after intake.
It is also a known phenomenon that patients who are not in control of the pressure or are close to it, the pressure rises in winter due to the cold weather.
Is ginger safe and does not interact with heart medications?
Ginger as a food of spices is safe alone but it interacts with several types of medicines, for example, causes the high blood flow in those who use warfarin. It increases the effect of aspirin and prefix on platelets…
It even increases the effect of sugar medications on people with diabetes and therefore can cause a drop in sugar.
Does ginger affect the heart
It probably doesn’t affect if the daily intake is less than 2 grams per day. But if more than that, it can cause a drop in pressure and a drop in pulses because they share the same effect as ginger, which is to partially shut down calcium channels in cells of the heart, particularly in the attention.
Does ginger lower cholesterol?
Yes, it has been scientifically proven that ginger reduces LDL cholesterol by 10% and does not exceed the effect of diet only. It is, therefore, an ineffective percentage in heart patients who need a 50 to 60% reduction in harmful cholesterol.
Does ginger sing on aspirin and plafx?
No, I have found many patients fall into this terrible mistake and hurt himself with heart clot and muscle deterioration because he understood wrong!! Ginger increases blood flow relatively but does not reach the degree scientifically required to prevent clotting and the formation of a clot and therefore it does not benefit the patient but increases it harm if he is taking aspirin and does not give him protection if taking it alone.
