Why I love ginger for gut health

Ginger is one of my favourite spices and I always add some fresh ginger to my morning smoothie.


Used a lot in Western herbal medicine, it is well known to help nausea and vomiting but ginger also has other benefits for gut health...


  • Anti-spasmodic helps calm smooth muscles

  • Anti-inflammatory and gastroprotective

  • Support bile flow for better digestion

  • A pro-kinetic supporting the migrating motor complex (MMC) often compromised in SIBO (small intestinal bacteria overgrowth)


Here are simple ways to add more ginger to your everyday diet...


(note if you suffer from GERD ginger can irritate symptoms in some people so introduce slowly)
