Ginger is a very popular product today, but consuming it in large quantities is not recommended. German experts talked about how much ginger can be dangerous to health.

Thus, it is recommended to consume no more than 2-4 grams of ginger per day, even if you have no health problems. If you have problems, the advisability of using ginger should be discussed with your doctor.

What problems can arise from consuming high doses of ginger?

Stomach problems

Eating too much ginger can lead to stomach problems, in particular, heartburn. After eating, ginger tea can reduce bloating and stimulate digestion, but it also causes the digestive system to produce more stomach acid. People who are prone to heartburn are advised to drink only a few sips of ginger drinks.

Blood thinning

Those who have a surgical operation, as well as those who have been operated on recently also should read warnings on ginger as it has a blood-thinning effect, and this can have dangerous consequences, for example, leading to bleeding.

It is also believed that ginger can increase menstrual cramps. Thus pregnant women should exclude ginger from their diet.
