Ginger is most definitely the underdog of all spices! It is highly regarded for its therapeutic medicinal properties in healing nausea symptoms, digestive issues and gastrointestinal distress. It naturally contains anti-inflammatory compounds, and can also inhibit the growth of particular cancer cells. It is a staple flavor for a number of cuisines, it's a great addition to vegetable juices and most importantly, it is impossible to make a good chai recipe without it!
