Apple juice, banana juice, cherry juice, we’ve finally made our way down the alphabet to the “G” juice. That’s right- Ginger Juice. You might be sticking your nose up in disgust, or maybe you are one of those people who love the taste and especially, the fresh and flowery scent of ginger. It is very similar to turmeric, cardamom, and galangal as it belongs to the Zingiberaceae family. But did you know that ginger has some great health benefits too? Ginger is also known as Zingiber officinale. Ginger originated from China and contains Gingerol, a substance with powerful medicinal properties. In fact, there is evidence of use in history over 5000 years ago when the Indians and Chinese used it for a variety of illnesses as it was considered a universal medicine.
