What Type of Ginger Tea Are  You Drinking?

Teas made from freshly grated ginger or locally dried ginger roots have numerous health benefits.  Surprisingly, so many individual are consuming packaged ginger tea with sugar and other sweeteners believing that they are consuming ginger tea and when you ask them to include ginger tea, their reply is that they are already consuming ginger tea.

You Need to change to real crushed freshly grated or dried ginger root if you must get all the benefits of Ginger Tea:

Real Ginger roots will do the following to your health, but ready-to-drink sweetened ginger tea will not:

3.  Suppress vomiting

5.  Reduce cholesterol
6.  Kill yeast and bacteria
7.  Reduce belly fat

It is important to state that most popular colourful ginger teas found in our supermarkets does not deliver these benefits but on the contrary.

Remember not to take ginger on empty stomach if you have fresh stomach ulcer or on blood thinning medications.  You may add a little milk to your ginger as I always do but not all the time.
