The middle of January in Canada is a really cold place to be and fighting off everything from the flu, colds, muscle soreness and the general winter blues becomes a daily task. Here in the Smith household one of the biggest ways we fight off sickness and winter blues is eat! Because we believe that food is medicine and one of the best examples of this is ginger. Ginger is truly a marvelous herb that packs a super healthy and beneficial punch.

WHAT ARE THE INCREDIBLE BENEFITS OF GINGER?
Used around the world to help relieve several ailments including influenza, colds and arthritis ginger is truly a contender to beat up the winter blues and all the ailments that come with it. In addition to all the medicinal benefits of ginger it also taste really good; with a uniquely orange pepper taste ginger is great in everything from meat dishes, cookies and clear sodas. However, in my opinion one of the best ways to maintain a lot of the medicinal benefits of ginger is to add a little bit of it raw to your juice or smoothie. A little bit goes a long way, so a half to one inch of ginger peeled should be enough to give your juice or smoothie that extra ailment fighting boost.
Regardless of whether you are shaking off a winter cold or fighting a stomach ache; ginger in my opinion is a wonderful thing to add to your regular diet for overall well-being and happiness. The more good foods you consume on a regular basis the better those foods will be able to influence everyday tasks; helping you perform better.
So give ginger a try in a tea, juice or any way that you will enjoy adding it to your diet and get back to us here at The Best of This Life and tell us your awesome ginger recipe or what health benefits you have received from ginger.
Thanks for reading and cheers to your health!
