The great joys of this powerful root!

Ginger Tea w/grated ginger root

Ginger root, with its ancient history and immense health benefits, has been hailed by many cultures as a spice of the heavens.
Ginger has medicinal value that dates back thousands of years. It's actually the rhizome of the ginger plant, and as a widely cultivated herb, it’s used in various forms across the world in foods, drinks, and beauty products. It's a staple in my kitchen. It’s also cousins with the famed turmeric root, cardamom, and galangal. Also used in holistic medicinal practices. 

Ginger's versatility is incredible, and it can be used in your everyday life. Here are some examples of its health benefits:
✔️ Blood Flow
✔️ Morning Sickness
✔️ Improves Metabolism/ aids in weight loss
✔️ Anti-Inflammatory
✔️ Inhabits growth of colorectal cancer cells
✔️ Treats asthma

Hey loves!! Incorporate this root whether it's in powder form or fresh. I cook with ginger in many recipes & as I am typing this, drinking a glass with local raw honey to sweeten. I grated about a heavy 1-1/2 tsps (I like it strong so I usually don't measure) of peeled fresh ginger root into a mug, pour hot water over, allow to sit for a few minutes before adding raw honey to taste and stir. Sip and enjoy the benefits!
