Last week we discussed the health benefits of Turmeric with its anti-inflammatory properties. Well, today we will focus on its close cousin – Ginger!
Ginger has a variety of compounds that contribute to its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects, particularly ideal for joint inflammation, reducing pain, and improving joint mobility. This spicy root is also known for its digestive properties that help to support digestive health.
Simply add ginger to a variety of your own recipes or make it as a tea by chopping or grating fresh ginger root and simmering in water. Another way to add the health benefits of ginger is with this delicious Turkey Ginger Soup recipe!
