  • Reduce post-exercise muscle pain with ginger tea. Ginger contains a natural anti-inflammatory called "gingerol," which can assist in reducing the muscle soreness that is so common after exercise, sports, or recreational activities, such as gardening, bowling, or playing with your kids or grandkids. Research has shown that daily consumption of ginger can reduce post-workout pain by up to 25%.

Did you know that ginger tea can also be used topically? If you're struggling with arthritic swelling and tenderness, you may also find relief from applying a restorative ginger tea compress or by soaking in a comforting ginger tea bath

  • Like many other teas, delicious ginger tea is rich in beneficial antioxidants. An antioxidant-rich diet bolsters immune system health, lessens the chance of chronic disease, provides protection against the harmful effects of free radicals, and keeps us looking and feeling more youthful. Savoring a cup of ginger tea is an easy, pleasant way to add more valuable antioxidants to your day. 
  • Boost your vitamin and mineral intake with ginger tea, which provides zinc, calcium, potassium, magnesium, and vitamins B6, C, and D.

  • Enjoy ginger tea for its anti-inflammatory benefits. We know that low-grade chronic inflammation is linked to many ailments and conditions (such as heart disease, diabetes, PCOS, obesity, Alzheimer's, and more). For support against chronic inflammation, include beneficial anti-inflammatory foods and beverages (such as ginger tea) in your daily diet. 
  • Promote healthy circulation with this healthful tea. Poor circulation could potentially lead to a variety of wellness concerns (such as constipation, painful joints, fatigue, headaches, and varicose veins). Ginger is well-known for improving blood flow, and enjoying ginger in a tea provides additional circulatory support by giving your body some extra hydration, as well.
