HEALTH BENEFITS OF MINT
Mint is not just a mouth refresher, it’s health benefits include digestion, nausea, headache, and asthma.
Ginger is a perennial plant, distinguished by the white and yellowish-greenish flowers it produces, as well as its thick and long twisting rhizoid (stem).
The ginger plant is known to have originated in China, however it has since then been cultivated in many other countries, including: India, South West Asia, West Africa and the Caribbean.
The plant is famous for its concentrated, spicy aroma, which can be attributed to the fact that it is composed of up to 3% natural essential oils.
Ginger has carminative properties (anti-spasmic) and can be used to calm an upset stomach, providing relief for the relief of bloating and gas and even morning sickness!
Ginger contains special enzymes responsible for catalyzing the proteins in your food, thus aiding in digestion and the prevention of cramps.
The ancient Greeks used to eat ginger after a large meal in order to ease the digestion process.
Ginger also acts as an antihistamine and aids in the treatment of allergies.
