Ginger saved me during my pregnancy. Ugh I had the worse nausea during the first trimester and drank a ton of ginger tea. Ginger is one of the many superfoods. There have been lots of different food varieties that has ginger as the main ingredient. This includes candies, powders, pills and tea forms. But despite the different varieties, there are people who are still hesitant to eat this specific root. Are you one of the many people who are struggling to add ginger in your diet?

The Amazing Power of Ginger Tea
Ginger has been known for possibly helping with the following:
- relief from nausea
- reducing muscle pain and soreness
- reducing menstrual pain
Now that you know the benefits how can you include them in your diet? One of the easiest ways to add ginger into your diet is to take it in its liquid form which is mostly used as a tea. You can choose to let the ginger dry and place a small amount of hot water and bring it to a boil. Other people choose to add a slice of ginger to their tea to add a little spice in their drink. Others opt to purchase ginger tea in its powdered form.
Ginger and Juicing
Have you considered juicing ginger? Juicing is an effective way to use ginger into your diet. I love to add a slice of ginger to a smoothie of spinach, kale, apple and celery. Ever since I saw Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead I have really enjoyed juicing once in a while.If you’re not a fan of juicing, you can choose to use ginger oil. If you opt to use ginger oil, make sure to read the label to avoid confusing it to topical ginger oils. You can also choose to use powdered ginger instead.
Ginger Capsules or Candy
If you’re not a fan of ginger but you still want to enjoy the benefits, you can always choose to take ginger capsules or candy. Using ginger in your diet as capsules allows you to still enjoy the health benefits that ginger provides minus the weird taste that it gives. When buying capsules, keep in mind to always check the label and buy from trusted manufacturers.
