soothes nausea, boosts digestion & promotes metabolism
Ginger is popular for its vibrant and spicy flavor, but for thousands of years, all over the world, ginger has been used to treat a variety of ailments.
In China, ginger has been used for both medicine and food dating back all the way to the Confucius time period. Ginger was also one of the first roots traded on the Silk Road, a network of trade routes connecting the East and West. The Silk Road was the bridge of economic, cultural, political, and religious interactions between these regions from the 2nd century BCE to the 18th century.
