Ginger deservedly belongs in the category of healing foods due to its powerful anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, and anti-viral properties. The health benefits of ginger come from its high levels of Vitamins B2, B3, and B6, magnesium, iron, manganese, zinc, potassium, and phosphorus. Many studies in the last few decades have shown that ginger has the ability to improve digestion, boost the immune system, and reduce pain. In addition to this, this healing spice is also known as a powerful natural remedy for infections and liver cleansing.
