One of the most popular herbs in both Traditional Ayurvedic Medicine and Asian Medicine, ginger rhizomes have been used as a spice, flavouring and medicine for centuries. The characteristic hot flavour of ginger comes from the zingerone resins and the hints of citrus fragrance come from the citral and cineol. Ginger is a relative of turmeric and as such both share similar benefits. Even though its Sanskrit name Sringavera means “antler- shaped root,” in Ayurveda it is known as ”Vishwabhesaj,” which means “the universal medicine” and as such is considered to have a wide range of benefits for all three constitutions.
This balancing herb supports many systems of the body. According to the energetic principles of Ayurveda, Ginger is pungent and sweet in the Rasa taste energy and heating in action according to Virya. Although it is considered a heating herb, in small amounts it will not aggravate Pitta, however those with extremely high Pitta should avoid high amounts of Ginger.
As one of nature’s most revered botanticals, Ginger has been used for centuries as an important herbal remedy in Ayurvedic Medicine. Organic Traditions Full-Spectrum Ginger is the most incredible form of the herb you have ever experienced. Our proprietary full spectrum process gently extracts the full array of phytonutrients offering the complete signature of the herb in its most potent and pure form. No harsh chemicals, solvents or high heat are used in the process ensuring optimal stability and the complete profile of protective therapeutic benefits as nature intended. This free-flowing soluble powder can be taken as is or added to any beverage, smoothie or recipe, with only ⅛-¼ of a teaspoon.
For use as a general, daily tonic: Use ⅛-¼ teaspoon of Organic Traditions Ginger Smoothie Booster once or twice daily. Sensitive individuals may want to start with only 1/8th of a teaspoon once daily and assess the results.
How To Use In The Kitchen And On The Go:
While most supercritical extracts are only available in a liquid form, Organic Traditions proprietary technology offers this dual-extraction in an easy to use, semi-soluble, free flowing powder. The powder is extremely concentrated. Adjust the amount for your needs and for each unique application. ⅛-¼ of a teaspoon of Organic Traditions Ginger Smoothie Booster can be added to 8-16oz. of water, coconut water, any beverage, smoothie or recipe. Make warm tea-like infusions by adding the powder to warm water (not boiling) and a natural sweetener of your choice such as Organic Traditions Yacon Syrup or Organic Traditions Coconut Palm Sugar. A cup of Ginger tea (do not use hot or boiling water – lukewarm water is fine) with Yacon or Coconut Palm Sugar is wonderful anytime as a digestive tonic, when one feels run down or exhausted, with the onset of a cold, flu or sore throat or simply as a daily tonic. Add Organic Traditions Ginger Smoothie Booster for example to a water bottle with a teaspoon of Organic Traditions Yacon Syrup when you are on the go to create a refreshing and uplifting drink. Simply shake and enjoy.
Please note that Ginger has a very spicy, hot taste and so use very little and combine with a sweetener of your choice. Since Ginger is such a hot herb, avoid contact with eyes and be careful not to touch eyes after handling the powder. Lastly, make a mouth and gum rinse or gargle by adding ⅛ of a teaspoon to ½ cup of warm water. As a gargle it combines well with Organic Traditions Full Spectrum Cinnamon, Amla or Triphala.
