I used to see ginger at the grocery store and wonder who would buy it and what exactly they would do with it. Now that I know the benefits, and how easy it is to incorporate into my daily life, I include it on my shopping list weekly.
Ginger has long been regarded in traditional Chinese medicine as a treatment for many different conditions. It can be used medicinally, as a delicacy, and as a hot, fragrant cooking spice.
