Ginger

I’ve recently grown to love ginger tea, but for another reason than digestion. It really helped alleviate my cold! BUT now I also know it aids in digestion by stimulating the enzymes for saliva, bil, and gastric production to help with the break down of food in the stomach. It also helps increase the body’s resting metabolic rate, meaning you get to burn more calories while resting!

Drinking it before and during a meal will help provide a healthy transit of food all the way through the digestive system through the large intestine. .

I would be doing you a disservice if I suggested anything other than fresh ginger root to make tea with.

Thinly slice about a tablespoon with a vegetable peeler and boil and seep in water!
