Ginger has always been an “it” root vegetable, but it hasn’t always been as accessible or as affordable as running into Whole Foods or Pressed Juicery for a shot at the onset of every cold. In fact, in the Middle Ages, just one pound of ginger held a value equal to that of an entire live sheep!
Its benefits are plentiful. Ginger reduces inflammation, has antibacterial properties, reduces menstrual pains, regulates blood sugar, and stimulates digestion. What more could a girl ask for!?
