For over 2,000 years, Chinese medicine has recommended ginger for its natural antibiotic effects and its ability to increase our metabolisms.
For starters, it’s an anti-inflammatory, which is great for making skin glow. And it keeps our circulation moving, and acts as a natural pain reliever. It also prevents colds and flu, and strengthens our immunity levels (since it’s full of with Copper, Magnesium, Potassium, and Vitamin B-6, which are known to help improve immunity by decreasing bacterial infections).
But hold the phone—ginger’s got more going on. It also helps with digestion of fats, tones intestinal muscles, and can help fight motion sickness, while it’s at it.
