What is Ginger root? In Ayurvedic medicine Ginger is known as the universal medicine due to its powerful effects on the fundamental functions of the body. Organic Ginger is a hot and spicy herb that stimulates the digestion, encourages proper functioning of the stomach, liver, and spleen. Organic Ginger root helps the body in its natural detoxifying activities, clearing toxins from the liver, digesting unprocessed foodstuffs in the intestinal tract, and dissolving phlegm in the lungs and respiratory tract. Ginger helps to settle the stomach by balancing the digestive enzymes. An organic diet is not complete without a healthy dose of organic ginger root or organic ginger supplements. This Ginger is 100% USDA Certified Organic and free of any animal products. As with all Gopala Organic products, this Ginger root was grown with care and love at our jungle farm in Karnataka, India.
