The Many Benefits Of Ginger

I previously mentioned that ginger is a good immune booster. Ginger is also great for bringing down a fever* and breaking up congestion. Ginger tea will sooth a sore throat. Taking ginger also quells nausea quickly.

*Remember that a fever is usually beneficial. It kills cold and flu viruses. I’ll write more on this later.

Since ginger is a blood thinner there is an added benefit to your heart and circulatory system.

Children will usually take a small (about a half inch in diameter is good) piece of candied ginger, which can be found in most grocery stores. Remember ginger is a blood thinner so for an adult no more than two quarter size pieces a day should be taken. Check with your doctor if you are on blood thinners.
