I am native to India & China and a common spice found in Indian kitchens. I also help in making tea more kickass, with the widely renowned adrak chai. I have been called as one of the healthiest and most delicious spices on the planet. I am loaded with nutrients and bioactive compounds that have powerful benefits for your body and brain.
My main bioactive compound, Gingerol gives me powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects. I can also treat many forms of nausea, especially morning sickness. I help in reducing muscle pain and soreness along with helping with osteo-arthritis. I may also drastically lower blood sugars and improve heart disease risk factors. My other benefits include treating chronic indigestion, reducing menstrual pain and protecting against Alzheimer’s disease.
