What is Ginger Tea Good For?

You already know that ginger is a natural remedy for nausea. You may have even read that ginger may aid sleep and a sore throat.

So what else is ginger good for?

If you're like me, the joy you get from a bit of pickled ginger on a fresh sushi roll is pretty great, but this is a tea blog, not a sushi blog, so let's not digress. (Excuse me a moment while I schedule sushi for lunch.)

If you're still reading (and not off to your local sushi bar), and you're interested in improving digestion, immunity, inflammation, and weight management, this is your moment!

Here's a super-quick overview on how great ginger can be for you:

Digestive Aid

Ginger has long been revered for its digestive properties. Studies suggest that ginger can stimulate the production of digestive enzymes, aiding in the digestion process and alleviating symptoms of indigestion and bloating (1).

Anti-Inflammatory Effects

Ginger contains bioactive compounds like gingerol, known for their potent anti-inflammatory properties. Regular consumption of ginger tea may help reduce inflammation in the body, potentially providing relief from conditions like arthritis (2).

Immune System Support

Rich in antioxidants, ginger tea can help bolster your immune system. Antioxidants combat oxidative stress and reduce the risk of chronic diseases by neutralizing free radicals in the body (3).

Nausea Relief

You already know it! Ginger has been used for centuries as a natural remedy for nausea. Whether it's morning sickness or motion sickness, ginger tea can help alleviate queasiness and settle an upset stomach (4).

Weight Management

Some studies suggest that ginger may play a role in weight management. Ginger tea can increase metabolism and promote feelings of fullness, potentially aiding in weight loss (5).

How to Make Ginger Tea

To prepare ginger tea, peel and thinly slice fresh ginger root. Boil water, add the ginger slices, and let it simmer for about 10 minutes. Strain the liquid and enjoy it hot or cold. For added flavour, you can sweeten it with honey or add a squeeze of lemon.
