Ginger’s reputation as a medicinal herb spans over two millennium, with the plant being used for everything from treating nausea and indigestion to boosting the immune system. Before I show you an awesome recipe for a ginger drink, let’s explore in more detail the benefits that the herb can have on your body. Ginger has cancer-fighting properties. It’s been noted to be a huge help in preventing colon cancer as well as ovarian cancer. This is attributed to the appropriately named active ingredient in ginger called gingerol, which is responsible for the herb’s tumor-suppressing abilities.
Ginger can help keep your digestive system running smoothly. It does this through the enzyme zingibain, which is linked to increased protein absorption. Ginger is also great for soothing nausea and seasickness. Ginger helps with joint inflammation, making it great if you’ve got arthritis or joint pain. This is due to the anti-inflammatory properties of gingerol.
And now on to the good stuff – a ginger juice bomb recipe you can use to harvest the power of ginger for yourself!
