In the traditional Ayurvedic medicine, ginger has been referred to as a “natural medicine chest”, due to its numerous health benefits.
It is also used to help digestion and support a healthy gut. Here are some of its healing powers:
— Eat it before meals to stimulate appetite and activate your digestive juices.
— It soothes cramps and stomach pain
— It reduces flatulence
— It treats nausea
— It improves the absorption of essential nutrients in the body
— Its anti-inflammatory properties soothe joint and muscle pain
— It effectively clears the sinuses and the ‘microcirculatory channels’ of the body
— Chewing it will help you to reduce post-operation nausea
— It has aphrodisiac properties
— It will help you relieve throat and nose congestion
You can add ginger to various dishes and drinks, and we suggest three delicious options:
- Grate the ginger root and prepare some warm and soothing ginger tea
- Add it to desserts to enrich their taste and add healing properties
- Cook spicy fragrant ginger rice, by adding ginger, green chilies, chopped garlic, and fresh cilantro leaves to cooked basmati rice.
Enjoy the delicious addition of ginger and boost your health!
