Ginger root has been used for centuries as a spice and for medicinal purposes. The first time I tried ginger, I wasn’t too crazy about it. I loved the scent but the flavor, not so much.
Over the years, I’ve grown to really love ginger. I’ll put a few small pieces in my salad or add some to my veggie juices. I even make fresh ginger tea which is very aromatic and quite delicious (recipe below). I’ve learned and personally experienced the healing powers of ginger and I can say in all honesty, it’s truly a Superfood.
Ginger has many benefits and can help the body heal from a number of ailments naturally including:
- Aids in Digestion
- Regulates Blood Sugar
- Reduces Inflammation
- Lowers Blood Pressure
- Helps with Nausea
- Antibacterial Properties
- Reduces Menstrual Pain
- Aids in Reducing LDL Cholesterol
- Anti-Cancer Properties
- Aids Weight Loss
Before making any changes to your healthcare regime, always check with your doctor/health practitioner to make sure it’s right for you.

- 2 Cups Water
- Sweetener (honey, stevia)
