Ginger is one of the most refreshing and diverse spices you can keep in your kitchen. Thanks to a unique combination of essential oils contained in the fresh root, cooking ginger into any dish releases an exotic aroma that will tantalize your senses.

But these oils do more than just make your mouth water. Consumed daily in the form of fresh, warm tea, ginger can improve your overall health in these these 9 amazing ways:

1. Relieves Stress

The aroma of ginger tea is both warm and relaxing, which may ease emotional tension, soothe nerves and provide you with the perfect moment of peace amidst your busy day.

2. Eases Nausea

Nothing settles an upset stomach like a mug of ginger tea. Drink after the onset of nausea to relieve the symptom, or think ahead. Sip some tea before you travel or fly to combat motion sickness before it starts!

3. Aids Digestion

In addition to relieving nausea, ginger tea is renowned for aiding in food absorption during digestion. A cup of tea after a meal can also help prevent bloating and heartburn.

4. Boosts Immunity

Ginger is uniquely anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-parasitic and is also very rich in antioxidants. A daily dose provides your body with extra fortifications against infection, virus and disease to keep you healthy and energized.

5. Natural Pain Killer

Ginger is a natural anti-inflammatory, perfect for remedying joint and muscle pain and may also help to ease migraine headaches, stomach cramps, or aches from the cold or flu. Use as a warm compress for sore joints and arthritis pain.

Special Tip: Ladies, for relief of menstrual pains, soak a hand towel in hot ginger tea and place it over your lower abdomen. This will relax your muscles and ease the intensity of cramps.

6. Improves Blood Circulation

Ginger root contains many vitamins, minerals and amino-acids, which support a healthy cardiovascular system. They detoxify the bloodstream and break down built up fats in arteries that may lead to a stroke. Meanwhile, the natural warming properties of hot tea increases blood flow and aids the delivery of oxygen and other nutrients to all cells in the body.

7. Soothes Respiratory Problems

Ginger’s anti-inflammatory properties make it an excellent remedy for chest congestion caused by allergies, asthma, or the common cold. Sip slowly and breathe deeply!  

8. Increases Fertility

In ancient Chinese medicine, ginger was used as aphrodisiac to boost fertility in men. More recent studies support the claim and show that regular intake of ginger may increase sperm count and help with issues of erectile dysfunction.

9. Helps Prevent And Combat Cancer

Studies have shown that ginger possess properties that not only slow the growth of cancer cells, but also fight against existing cells to reverse the illness.

Drinking ginger tea every day may be one of the greatest keys to health there is. The health benefits of fresh ginger seem endless. It’s amazing how one simple ingredient added to your daily diet could do so many great things for your wellness!

What Our Clients Say

During my FitLife transformation, I lost 70 pounds! That's why I signed up for the protocol, but the most exciting result is that I found ME in the process. I had been hiding under a pile of pounds, self-doubt, and grief! FitLife changed my life and I knew I had to share it with others.

-Lynne, Longwood FL

I started with Fitlife back in 2011-2012…I wrote into Fitlife asking for an extreme amount of help. I was 300 pounds, with high cholesterol, and Drew helped me transform my life. I lost over 130 pounds and I no longer have high cholesterol. Not only did I lose weight, so did my husband, who lost over 70 pounds!
