What favourite holiday flavour is also one seen as one of the healthiest spices on the planet?…GINGER!
Ginger has been used for a long time in forms of traditional medicine, and for good reason! It offers so many benefits including helping digestion, reducing nausea, and helping your body fight cold & flu season!
Since ginger and its by-products tend to accumulate in the digestive tract, the majority of it’s benefits are on that area! The most common and widely known use of ginger is to alleviate symptoms of nausea and vomiting. It has a long history use as a sea sickness remedy. However more recently ginger has been used to relieve nausea and vomiting after surgery, and as a treatment to pregnancy-related nausea.
Gingerol, the bioactive substance in fresh ginger can help lower the risk of infection and stop the growth of many different types of bacteria! Making it very effective against oral bacteria linked to inflammatory diseases in the gums (such as gingivitis and periodontitis)
Finally, there is also recent research showing consuming ginger long term has the ability to decrease inflammation, swelling and pain. This includes pain associated with osteoarthritis, menstrual pain, and muscle soreness.
So! Not only are our Gingerbread Cookies insanely cute, but they also offer some powerful benefits for your body!
Now that’s really a treat you can feel good about!
