Gingerly Along the Way

Ginger. It's not a root! It's a rhizome, an underground stem that's been used in traditional medicine and as a spice in many cultures around the world. Now it's time for you to incorporate it on the daily...

It has 12 anti-oxidants and this funny little herb contains essential oils, protein, calcium, phosphorus, iron, vitamin C, choline, folic acid, inositol, manganese, panthotenic acid, silicon, and a small amount of vitamin B3. Plus, it's an aphrodisiac!

This little herb has so many powerful benefits (like fighting colds, flatulence & menstruation issues to name a few) but I highly recommend slicing a small amount and dipping it in a little honey or agave nectar for a morning buzz. It will help get the senses going and keep you up all day!
