(Zīngiber officināle)
Ginger root has been used for centuries in cooking and medicine, as it tones up the body and helps overcome physical and mental fatigue.

In addition, it facilitates digestion and improves appetite, which is necessary for normal functioning throughout the day.

Ginger contains many useful minerals: magnesium, phosphorus, calcium, sodium, iron, zinc, potassium, chromium, manganese, silicon, vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, C, E, and K, fatty acids, as well as asparagine and glutamic acid. The basis of ginger's burning flavor is a unique resinous substance called gingerol.
Equally important, ginger protects against the bacterium Helicobacter pylori, which affects more than 50% of young people in Eastern Europe and Central Asia. Ginger perfectly cleanses the body of toxins and improves immunity, and it is a means for longevity.

Interesting fact: ginger cultivation began in the III-IV century BC in India, and archaeologists found the first evidence of it in ancient tombs in China. Bags of ground ginger were found there. Ginger was believed to drive away evil spirits. Ginger is also used to replace currency for people. The Phoenicians traded in North India and used ginger rhizomes as a currency.
