Did you know… that weird looking stump you see piled up in baskets at the supermarket is actually a superfood, once revered by Chinese and Indian healers as a gift from the gods? Ginger gives me a warm hug from the inside out!
Does ginger possess a myriad of health benefits?
Absolutely! You see, ginger is botanically related to turmeric, a spice known for its powerful anti-inflammatory and pain reducing characteristics; so it’s no wonder it shares the same abilities, and more.
A great digestive aid, our funny looking unpeeled stump helps to reduce bloating and flatulence by stimulating digestive acids and secretions, thus supporting the digestion of food and nutrient absorption and assimilation.
This wonder spice also helps to clear phlegm in the lungs. alleviating coughs, colds and breathing difficulties.
For your skin
Ginger also has a rejuvenating effect on the skin with its antioxidant properties and from an Ayurvedic perspective, is considered Sattvic (rich in prana) helping to promote a calm, peaceful state of being.
♥ Slice and dice a coin size (10c) piece of ginger and smother with a teaspoon of organic honey. Gingerlicious any time of day!
