Ginger has been used medicinally for thousands of years, and that’s why this apple lime ginger juice is quite literally the best medicine you could put in your body.
Ginger helps alleviate nausea, whether associated with illness, motion sickness, or morning sickness. It promotes the secretion of various digestive juices and enzymes that help neutralize stomach acid and reduce the feelings of nausea.
Ginger also acts as a pain reliever, soothing aches and pains caused from arthritis, back pain, menstrual and muscle cramps, and infections of the respiratory system. Pain relieving activities in ginger can be attributed to anti-inflammatory compounds called gingerols, which offer free radical protection by inhibiting nitric oxide production (which, under normal conditions, would form damaging free radicals that exacerbate pain in the body).
Drinking this apple lime ginger juice every day for 8 weeks will help minimize (and even eliminate) your aches and pains. If you are using it as a way to help alleviate nausea or muscle cramps, it will work almost immediately.
