Use a Dash of Ground Ginger to Take Down Inflammation
- by James Lovette-Black PhD, RN, RYT
We are hearing conversations everywhere about food-as-medicine. As common herbs go, studies demonstrate rosemary, ginger, turmeric, and cloves to be potent anti-inflammatory substances, even in typical amounts use to prepare foods.
Try adding a good dash of ground ginger to one or two cups of your morning coffee or tea. It doesn’t appreciably alter the taste and enhances the base coffee flavors. Keep a little container of it near your coffee or tea preparation area to facilitate use.
As an herb that contains appreciable amounts of readily-absorbed anti-inflammatory complexes, your body and mind will thank you for using them.
Happiness is a choice I make.
