This fragrant root has become a popular addition to juices, smoothies, salads, and more. It has a great, unique flavor – and it also has many medicinal properties beneficial to humans. Not least of these – it can neutralize bad breath! Ginger is typically too strong to eat on its own – although some people do like to chew a piece – but you can peel and slice a few pieces and add to hot water, with lemon. Or try ginger tea! Avoid ginger chews unless they are low or no sugar.
