RECOMMENDATION

Ginger provides a fresh flavour along with some warmth to meals and drinks which can be quite pleasant and soothing. Adding slices of fresh ginger to a hot herbal tea with lemon and stevia, can help reduce nausea and sooth your stomach if you are undergoing treatments.

If you are not eating organic ginger, be sure to peel it before consumption as they do tend to contain some pesticides on the skin surface.
