Ginger has a distinct aroma that everyone recognizes - it is sharp, warm, and almost lemony! Have you ever been given ginger ale to sip on when you have a stomach bug or even nausea? There's a really good reason for this. Ginger is the ultimate stomach soothing herb and has been used in this way for thousands of years.
We love the healing powers of ginger and include it in a few of our teas! We also carry plain ol' ginger if you want it straight up. 😎
SCIENCE TELLS US:
- Ginger is high in gingerol, a substance with powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.
- Just 1–1.5 grams of ginger can help prevent various types of nausea, including chemotherapy-related nausea, nausea after surgery, and morning sickness.
- Ginger has been shown to lower blood sugar levels and improve various heart disease risk factors in people with type 2 diabetes.
- Ginger can speed up emptying the stomach, which can be beneficial for people with indigestion and related stomach discomfort.
Ginger is earthy, peppery, bright with notes of citrus and has a potent spicy kick. Ginger can, of course, be used as a tea, but it can also be used culinarily!
