Ginger (Zingiber officinale)


Anti-inflammatory for aches, pains, and immune support

A long-living plant with attractive pink and white flowers, Ginger has been in use for more than 5,000 years. Initially cultivated in China, it’s now grown widely throughout Southeast Asia, West Africa, India, and the Caribbean Islands. It’s the knotty roots that are widely prized in herbalism.

Even though its taste profile is spicy, Ginger is coveted for its digestive support and metabolism boosting properties. Its ability to gently warm the body from the core contributes to soothing the pain that accompanies swollen and stiffened joints. Ginger may also be helpful in relieving common headache symptoms, such as nausea.
