The Goodness of Ginger
Ginger is a common culinary ingredient with extraordinary medicinal properties. The thick, light brown shoots we see in grocery stores come from the rhizomes, or underground stems, of the tropical flowering plant Zingiber officinale. Not only does this root pack a flavorful punch, but it also provides rich health benefits.
1. Supports the immune system
2. Freshens breath and whitens teeth
3. Creates a calm stomach
4. Soothes sore muscles and aids in arthritis relief
5. May lower blood sugar and cholesterol
