Pineapple-Mint-Ginger Water

Did you know you can keep ginger in your freezer?  So there’s every reason to always have some at home!

Ginger has broad-spectrum antibacterial, antiviral, and antioxidant, properties.  It is also anti-inflammatory (like many natural plant compounds), making it valuable for pain relief for joint pain, menstrual pain, and headaches.

This powerful herb shows promise for fighting cancer, diabetes, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, asthma, bacterial and fungal infections.  What’s more, ginger is a thermogenic substance with beneficial impacts on metabolism and fat storage

Cheers!
