What Does Ginger Tea Do for You?

Many people associate ginger with holiday dishes, pumpkin pie spice, Asian cooking and potpourri, but this simple root is surprisingly beneficial to the body in various ways. Aside from its helpfulness in the realm of health, it also provides a pleasing, spicy taste as it adds a sense of warmth to the body. Next time you’re looking for something different from the standard teas you’ve sipped, try some ginger tea to find out just how much it can do for you.

Digestion and Morning Sickness

Ginger ale is a go-to drink for many people’s digestive upsets, but ginger tea is a healthier option that can be just as effective. It’s a simple yet soothing home remedy for nausea and other digestive symptoms, such as when your digestive system just feels unsettled. It is also a well-known treatment for the morning sickness that so often accompanies pregnancy, especially during the first trimester. Taking very small sips frequently can be more palatable to someone with nausea than trying to drink a large mug of ginger tea too quickly. Even if you don’t have digestive symptoms, drinking ginger tea along with or after a meal can help you digest more efficiently.

Adrenal Glands

When the endocrine system’s adrenals glands get fatigued as a result of long-term stress, ginger can help heal them. Among its many benefits for the adrenals, ginger tea balances cortisol stress hormone levels, brings blood pressure back to normal, increases the body’s metabolic rate and ups a person’s energy, according to James L. Wilson, ND, DC, PhD, in his book Adrenal Fatigue: The 21st Century Stress Syndrome.

Ingredients

You have a couple options when making ginger tea. You can either use fresh, raw ginger, which most supermarkets’ produce sections sell. Cut off a small piece of ginger, then place a teaspoon of peeled, minced ginger into a tea cup or mug. Alternatively, you can buy a package of ginger tea bags at a grocery store or health food store.
