Superfoods 2018: Ginger

Ginger was used during my childhood home to fight off colds and flu. While my mother didn’t serve it up naturally (Canada dry ginger ale), it still impacted my health in a positive way and helped me make the connection between diet and health at a young age.

Fast forward to the present … I use ginger on a daily basis when I make fresh juice. I have been buying and using ginger for over a year now and do feel healthier. Research indicates ginger can benefit all of us in the following ways: boost bone health, strengthen the immune system, anti-inflammatory substance, increase appetite, prevent various types of cancer, improve respiratory conditions, aid in digestion, eliminate the symptoms of arthritis, reduce excess gas, enhance sexual activity, and relieve pains related to menstrual disorders, nausea, and flu.
