As these Anti-inflammatory Ginger Ice Cubes slowly melt in a tall glass of plain water (or sparkling water), they add a delicious pop of ginger flavor.   And I love to have these ginger ice cubes stashed in my freezer during cold and flu season so I can conveniently make up a quick cup of  ginger tea.  All you do is heat a cup of water in a saucepan and pop in 1-2 ginger ice cubes and heat through until melted.  Stir in honey and lemon to taste and enjoy!

BENEFITS OF GINGER

Chronic inflammation is a main culprit behind many  different diseases, such as cancer, heart disease, diabetes and arthritis.  Ginger contains properties (such as gingerols, shoals, and gingerdiones) which provide potent antioxidant, antibacterial,  and anti-inflammatory benefits to help ward off these diseases.  Ginger also contains certain phyt0chemicals which aids in digestion and calming upset tummies.  These digestive benefits help to facilitate the body’s natural  cleansing (detoxifying) process by eliminating waste and toxins.   These same properties may also provide blood-thinning properties which may help to improve blood circulation and prevent blood from clumping and clotting.

Ginger is also good for calming nausea, treating fungal infections, fighting bacterial infections, relieving muscle aches and pains.  It may also help regulate blood sugar and lower cholesterol levels (LDL the bad kind) and raise HDL the good kind.
