I’m always looking for natural and effective ways to prevent myself from getting sick. I never take anything that I would not use in cooking. My kitchen cabinet is my medicine cabinet as well. I’ve been a huge fan of ginger lately. I can honestly say, adding ginger to my smoothies has kept me from getting sick this year. Ginger is a superfood. It possesses an amazing ability to enhance immunity, improve digestion and reduce inflammation.
Ginger contains several essential oils that make up its distinct aroma and flavor: zingerone, shogaols, & gingerols. These oils are powerful anti-bacterial, anti-viral, anti-fungal and anti-parasitic agents. Ginger root promotes healthy digestion, boosts immunity, treats asthma, aids in cardiovascular health, relieves pain and much more.
