INGREDIENT - Ginger
One of the most versatile and accessible food sources in our lineup, our yellow ginger brings a host of benefits. From digestive stimulation, reduced motion sickness and immune support, to antimicrobial activity and microbiome health, our premium Hawaiian ginger stands strong on its own, and is a catalyst in synergistic functions to aid in the absorption and assimilation of key nutrients from other ingredients in our blends.
In Middle-Age Europe, ginger was so highly-prized that it was used as currency. One pound of ginger was enough to purchase a sheep!

Scientific Reviews & Studies
“Research data indicate that ginger and its constituents accumulate in the gastrointestinal tract, which supports the many observations of ginger’s effectiveness as an anti-nausea agent and as a possible colon cancer-preventing compound. Ginger acts as a potent antioxidant in vitro and ex vivo… and Ginger appears to exert anti-inflammatory effects by suppressing COX-2 with subsequent inhibition of prostaglandin and leukotriene biosynthesis.”
