How To Make Homemade Ginger Tea – Healthy Video

Why Drink Ginger Tea?

Ginger tea – especially homemade ginger tea – is a delicious way to soothe your stomach. Ginger is a natural anti-inflammatory used to relieve a variety of symptoms associated with health concerns such as motion sickness, arthritis, nausea, and bursitis. This herb is particularly prized as a digestive aid – it can strengthen the lining of the upper gastrointestinal tract, and thus protect against parasites and ulcers.

Homemade ginger tea is simple to make – watch our How To Make Healthy: Ginger Tea recipe.

When buying ginger, choose the whole roots that are free of wrinkles – which indicate that are old and dry – and simply peel the skin away from the root. Leftover fresh ginger can be stored in the freezer in a sealed container for up to three months.

You can also get more ginger into your diet through pickled or candied ginger, and ginger syrups.
