Fresh ingredients for ginger juice

Recipe Ingredients: 

Ginger: Ginger can be added to your smoothies, or thrown into savory recipes. It’s very versatile and good for you. Ginger shots can help provide powerful support for your digestive system and works magic if you have an upset stomach, bloat, nausea, etc. It can also be great for building a healthy immune system during cold and flu season.

Chia: On top of the ginger benefits, I also have chia seeds in this juice that contain a large amount of fiber and omega-3 fatty acids. They are also high in protein and several other essential minerals and antioxidants for an even bigger healthy kick to this juice recipe.

Expert Tips & FAQ: 

What is ginger juice good for? Eating/drinking ginger aids in healthy digestion, and can even help easing symptoms of an upset stomach or nausea.

Can you drink ginger juice everyday? Generally you shouldn’t consume more than 4 grams of ginger in a day, but it won’t cause damage if you do drink it every day.

Can ginger juice reduce belly fat? The anti-inflammatory properties and antioxidant properties of ginger work well in melting down fat, reducing bloating, fixing constipation, and improving digestion.

Do you peel ginger before juicing? No. The juicer works to extract the juice from the pulp and skin and ads a level of bitter taste that is great for the overall flavor of the ginger juice.
