Wellness Wednesday: Ginger, The Antioxidant You Need

July 8, 2020

Ginger is a powerful antioxidant that I grew up on BUT I didn’t realize the benefits until I got much older. I remember when I was younger my mother would make me drink ginger tea for various maladies such as stomach aches and colds. At that time, I thought yuck this tea is gross but would later realize a change in my symptoms. 

In my twenties, as I began my holistic journey, I revisited ginger and started to incorporate it into my diet. I would use it to make tea, certain recipes and also use it in my pressed juices. When I am on my menstrual cycle, I drink ginger tea and it helps to alleviate my stomach cramps. Also I use it when I feel a cold coming on and it helps to boost my immune system to help my body fight it off. Below I have highlighted a few benefits: 

  • Helps with nausea;
  • Helps with inflammation;
  • Helps with Indigestion;
  • Helps fight Infections;
  • Relieves muscle pain

Let me know if you use ginger and how you incorporate it into your diet!
