Ginger root is one of the most ancient, healthy and delicious spices on the planet! It has been used in China for over 2,000 years. It contains bioactive compounds and nutrients that are wonderful for both the body and brain. The main bioactive compound is gingerol which has powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. An old Indian proverb says “Everything good is found in ginger” and it is so true! This list of health benefits goes on and on:
The root can:
- Treat nausea
- Reduce muscle pain & soreness
- Reduce osteoarthritis symptoms
- Lower blood sugar levels
- Treat chronic indigestion
- Reduce menstrual pain
- Lower cholesterol levels
- Protect against cancer
- Improve brain function
- Prevent Alzheimer’s disease
- Help fight infections
So as you can see it definitely is a universal medicine.
To make ginger tea you’ll want to obtain about 2 inches of fresh raw ginger. I like to peel the ginger and slice it into strips. You can use more or less ginger depending on how strong you want it.
You’ll want to boil the ginger in about 1 ½ to 2 cups water for 10 minutes. If you want it strong you can boil the water up to 20 minutes. To obtain a flavorful cup of tea, don’t be shy to add more slices of ginger.
After boiling you’ll want to strain the liquid into a cup. Top with lemon juice or honey to add some sweetness.
If you have leftover ginger be sure to store it in a dry place away from heat, moisture and light. Don’t store fresh ginger in the fridge since it can easily mold.
Now it’s time to curl up on the couch (preferably with a soft blanket) and sip on the wonderful superfood.
