I use a generous amount of ginger in my juice recipes, apart from tasting strong and great, it has loads of purpose.
It does camouflage the Gorgeous GREEN tastes, that are not so gorgeous from the mind and conditioning perspective 🙂 and here are some other reasons it has been used for thousands of years medicinally…
Ginger root has a long history of use as a herbal remedy for excessive intestinal gas and certain other symptoms of gastrointestinal distress. When you consider that we are what we digest, excessive gas, indicates that digestion is not happening effectively in the system, so to aid this is important. A healthy happy digestive system will support a strong immune system.
It is known to alleviate, nausea, vomiting, cold sweats, dizziness etc…it is safe for pregnancy, so “morning sickness” can be assisted through consuming ginger root in foods and juices.
Ginger root has anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. compounds called “gingerols” appear to be responsible for both benefits. Arthritis sufferers have been know to enjoy better mobility, less swelling, and less general joint pain. Ginger is known to suppress the production of compounds that promote inflammation in and near the joints.
The antioxidant properties help protect the body from the effects of free radicals, which are known to damage cells, organs and other tissues, especially around the joints.
To become comfortable with ginger in your juice is beneficial for you, in the beginning it will catch in your throat, but give it time and the “after burn” is stimulating. I feel that it is eating at bacteria, and have experienced that as my body gets cleaner, the burn is less, which for me may indicate the diminishing bacteria, which excites me 🙂
Juice 4 Joy – Immune booster has a generous amount of ginger in the recipe, along with lemon, granny smith apple, a selection of berries (black, sour and cranberry) and then still an syrup made from a selection of products high in antioxidant value. It is bottled in 50 ml portions, 2 x 25ml shots, in glass (this maintains the integrity of the product for longer – as well as supporting the health of our planet), it is a powerful product to support our nutritional lifestyle “Juice4Joy & food program”.
