Ginger is one of the healthiest herbs on the earth and it comes with some amazing benefits for the body! It has been used medicinally for thousands of years in Ayurvedic medicine in India as a natural anti-inflammatory food. Check out below some of the benefits and why you should add this wonder herb to your food regimen.
Ginger relieves pain by reducing inflammation, which is the root cause of most diseases.
Improves digestion: because of its prebiotics that is found in this root, it helps good bacteria to grow and kills bad bacteria. It also helps to reduce bloating, intestinal inflammation and poor digestion by supporting the digestion of food and nutrient absorption.
Ginger is great to reduce nausea and vomiting of any kind including morning sickness, travel or motion sickness.
Ginger is excellent for supporting the immune system against viral infections. It also reduces nasal congestion and coughs.
Ways to prepare Ginger:
Hot tea: We drink ginger tea especially during the winter months. Just cut up chunks (you can peel the skin or leave it on) boil it for approximately 10 minutes and add raw honey and fresh lemon and enjoy!
Cook in foods: I grate ginger root and add it to various dishes. I typically do this with stir fry meals, it adds great flavor
Juicing: My kids loves carrots, apples and ginger juice or ginger, carrots and oranges. Ginger shots are also great, combine ginger and lemon!
If my kids tummy hurts, I will cut up small pieces of raw ginger and pour raw honey on top and let them eat off the spoon!
