One of the best ways to consume your daily dose of ginger is with an organic ginger shot – its quick, easy, healthy, and tastes great.

Ginger has been used in the Asian and Indian community for centuries for its medicinal properties.  Classified as an aromatic bitter herb, ginger contains gingerols, zingerone and shogaol, essential oils that give ginger its strong aromatic and pungent flavor.  Ginger is known to relieve digestive issues such as nausea (morning sickness), and loss of appetite.  The root (rhizome) of the ginger plant is what is used for consumption and can be consumed fresh, dried, powered, or in oil form as a juice.

Besides being delicious, there are many health benefits associated with consuming organic ginger including the ones listed below.
