A little about Ginger…
We all are familiar with Ginger, and I am pretty safe in saying that the majority (if not all) of us have consumed it as part of a recipe or used it as some form of remedy. Ginger has many great health benefits, but it is especially good for weight management.
The Ginger root comes from the Zingiber officinale plant. For thousands of years and it has been used in Chinese and Indian medicine. It still remains one of the popular home remedies for different health issues like stomach pain & nausea.
Scientists worldwide often discuss the miracle properties held by the Ginger herb and even go as far as to refer to it as the ‘food as medicine’.
Many great studies have been conducted on what kind of benefits Ginger can provide us with, and the results have been very impressive. Aside from helping with losing weight, many people consume it as part of their daily supplements, especially when they feel ‘under the weather’.
Adding Ginger to your daily routine
There are many different ways you can include Ginger as part of your daily routine. For example there are ginger and lemon teas available in almost every supermarket. You can simply start your day with a cup of tea.
If you would like to get a little bit creative Ginger is a great spice to use in many different Asian style meals. One of the most popular ones are curry dishes, as well as using it as part of a salad dressing.
Ginger in supplements
If demanding schedules and busy lives may not allow you time to bake or cook fresh meals consistently, you have the choice of consuming supplements instead. If you take the supplement direction, it’s important to look for the Non-GMO label.
Our best selling Immune Extreme capsules contain both Ginger & Turmeric and will support long-lasting immune function and help deliver the benefits mentioned above. Turmeric is important to look for in a Ginger based supplement as it can really increase the potency of addressing joint pain and inflammation.
The recommended maximum dosage of ginger extract is 3-4 grams per day. However, our organic capsules are optimally dosed, so this wouldn’t need to be a concern.
