When a person is suffering from anorexia, they are often psychologically forcing themselves to avoid eating. As their stomach “shrinks”, they are less likely to be hungry, even though they are depriving their body of important nutrients that it needs to flourish and function. Ginger root is one of the best appetite stimulants we have available, making it much harder for anorexic patients to convince themselves that they are simply not hungry. This can increase overall food intake and help to slowly get an anorexic patient back on a health track. Ginger is also packed with antioxidants that can further protect the body.
