This herb, derived from the root of the ginger plant, is spicy and smells wonderful.  It is this ingredient that gives ginger ale its flavor, and is most well known for treatment of nausea.  But that’s not all ginger can do for you. Let learn more about Ginger Tea.

Ginger tea is a source of vitamin B6, vitamin C, magnesium and potassium.  The main ingredient in ginger is an antioxidant called gingerol which assists in reducing and/or destroying the free radicals that cause illnesses in the body.

Some benefits of ginger tea:

  • relief of  gas and flatulence

  • wards off cold, flu and sore throats
