Ginger and Digestion

Ginger - The Ultimate Digestion Enhancer

Ginger has a long history of being used for the treatment of common ailments.  Ginger can indeed offer some fantastic benefits to the body. One of those benefits is how well it works as a digestive aide.  

Ginger has some unique properties that allow it to work well with the digestive system. Ginger naturally stimulates digestive enzymes. These enzymes are what break down fats, proteins, and carbohydrates.   

Ginger may also help these enzymes to break down gases in the intestinal tract and expel them, providing relief from discomfort associated with gas build up.

Another way ginger helps with digestion is that it speeds up gastric emptying.  In other words, ginger speeds up the digestive system so that it empties quickly, helping with pressure and bloating by preventing or relieving constipation.    

Because of its high antioxidant content, ginger may also allow your intestines to absorb more nutrients from the food you eat.

Ginger gives relief from:

  • Bloating
  • Flatulence
  • Intestinal discomfort
  • Constipation

This gut-healing tonic will help with digestion:

In a large mason jar, mix-

2 Tbsp of raw organic apple cider vinegar

1 Tbsp of Wakaya organic Fijian ginger powder 

32 oz of spring or filtered water

1-2 packets of stevia to taste

Shake the jar to mix and cool in the refrigerator for at least two hours.  Drink one glass (8 oz) of the digestion juice about 15 to 20 minutes before eating.

Ginger is a natural, safe and effective way to help with digestive issues.  When you start using ginger every day to help with digestive problems, you’ll notice that your digestive discomforts begin to fade away.
