Ginger is more than a super food, it’s a wonder food. If your immune system is down, you’ve got a cold, cough or sore throat get the ginger in!

Ginger has been used in a wide range of cultures old and new to help with loads of conditions. Google it and have a look. Here’s a few:

1) circulation
2) stomach upset
3) respiratory problems

Check this article out (http://www.greenmedinfo.com/node/83545) for a full list of conditions (and references) that ginger can help with. It’s overwhelming.

I use it like a sweet as soon as I feel under the weather and can feel it’s benefits straight away. Keeps my throat warm when I’m out training clients.

There’s many ways you can serve it up:

1) cough sweet: chew it raw like a sweet and let it sit in your mouth releasing it’s juices gently into your throat and digestive system.

2) tea: chop it and let it simmer gently for 15 mins or longer till ginger has seeped into water. Wait till it cools and add honey and fresh lemon.

3) cooking: add it to stews, stir fries, cakes.

The beauty of ginger is it’s cheap and easy and doesn’t do you any harm so try it!

Go see a medical professional if you think you’re ill.
