How often have you enjoyed your hot cuppa chai with the aroma of ginger!? Many would say, at every tea-break at work, or whenever it is rainy!

Ginger – the time-tested wonder spice that infuses life into tea has so many health benefits and has been used in Ayurveda over the centuries so much, that it is a virtual treasure-chest of medication!

Ginger-infused, digestionfriendly chai is a household favorite, and it is grandma’s favorite antidote for battling cold and flu. What’s more, ginger can even be grown in a pot on your window-sill! Let’s look closer at this magical brown root.

Ten Great Benefits of Ginger

  • Don’t have an appetite, or feel hungry enough? Eat a few slivers of fresh ginger just before lunch to wake up a dull appetite and fire up your digestive juices!
  • Ginger improves the absorption and assimilation of essential nutrients.
  • Sinuses blocking up your life? Ginger clears the ‘microcirculatory channels’ of the body, including sinuses that tend to flare up frequently.
  • Feeling airsick or nauseous? Chew on ginger, ideally tossed in a little honey. Yumm!
  • Stomach cramps make you moan and groan? Chew up on ginger.
  • Joint pain troubling you? Ginger has anti-inflammatory properties. It brings relief from aching muscles and joints. Just add a few drops of ginger essential oil in your bathwater.
  • Just had surgery? Chewing ginger after an operation helps conquer nausea.
  • Not feeling perky enough in the bedroom? Try adding a gingery zest to a bowl of soup. (shhh… Ayurvedic texts say ginger has definite aphrodisiac properties)
  • Stir up some ginger tea to get rid of throat and nose congestion. And when there’s a nip in the air, the warming benefits of this tasty tea are even greater!
  • Plus, ginger is a great way to spice up your food! Whether it is in a Basmati Herb Rice with finely chopped garlic, ginger, green chilies and fresh cilantro leaves; or a dash of ginger in your juice; or a zingy dessert with grated ginger on your vanilla panna cotta or strawberry sorbet to wake up the flavor, there’s no beating ginger at flavor, aroma and taste!
