A delicious accompaniment to your choice of sushi roll, and a great way to cleanse the palate in between courses, ginger is a zesty and refreshing little root, guaranteed to spice up your diet, no matter what’s on the menu!
Derived from the ginger plant, the underground stem (the part we ingest) can be consumed fresh, dried, powdered, or in juice form (our favorite by far, but we’re unabashedly biased).
Proven to help pregnant women reduce the onslaught of both vomiting and nausea, ginger is equally as effective when it comes to battling the symptoms of motion sickness and menstrual pains. Got gas? Taking a dose of ginger is also an effective way to combat a bad case of the rumbles.
As if ending bad gas and bloated bellies wasn’t enough, ginger also possesses gingerols, properties that have direct anti-inflammatory effects. In fact, studies prove that people with osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis experience reduced pain levels and improvement in mobility when consuming ginger on a regular basis! Is ginger the new wonder herb? We think so.
