Is Ginger Drink Safe For Ulcer Sufferers?
Is Ginger Drink safe for people with gastric disorders: gastritis / GERD and the like? U003cbr u003thank you
Hello Suzito, thank you for the question on HealthReplies.com.
Ginger has been known since ancient times as one of the ingredients that can help relieve symptoms of gastric disorders (such as stomach ulcers, inflammation of the stomach, GERD).
Although it has been known for a long time, medically its own mechanism for how this plant can help alleviate complaints is still unclear. Until now, there are still quite a lot of researchers who examine the efficacy of this plant.
Although it is said to help alleviate complaints, both ginger plants that are consumed directly or in the form of ginger drinks, are not recommended for consumption in large quantities (maximum 4 grams per 24 hours) to avoid the side effects that can result in the form of a hot, bloated, or chest feeling become more frequent bowel movements.
If the ginger drink has been mixed with caffeine, it is strongly recommended not to consume it because caffeine can aggravate complaints of gastric disease.
I hope this helps.
