Ginger is a member of a plant family that includes cardamom and turmeric. It has a slightly spicy aroma that adds great flavor to this juice. Indians and Chinese are believed to have produced ginger as a tonic root for over 5000 years to treat many ailments. Ginger has been thought to have a variety of powerful therapeutic and preventive effects and has been used for thousands of years for the treatment of hundreds of ailments from colds to cancer. It is a great source of antioxidants and has been found to reduce inflammation, swelling, and pain. Garlic was used at the beginning of recorded history; ancient medical texts from Egypt, Greece, Rome, China and India each prescribed medical applications for garlic. It also has an anti-inflammatory effect like ginger does, resulting in overall stronger immunity.
