The reigning queen of social media takes a ginger shot every single morning. No not Queen Bey, the other Queen. Selena Gomez revealed to James Corden, during her car pool karaoke segment, that ginger shots are her secret to maintaining her health. Why?
After throwing back ginger shots with Corden, Gomez revealed, “It’s killing everything inside- all the bad things.” And she’s mostly right. While ginger doesn’t kill “everything” inside you, it does kick bad gut bacteria to the curb. It’s a serious anti-inflammatory and eases digestion. Adding raw ginger to your diet can improve your over health in a number of amazing ways.
Here are 10 reasons to take ginger shots every day:
1.) Ginger Calms Nausea
Feeling nauseous? According to The World Health Organization, ginger is an effective way to treat your symptoms. Two new studies recently found that 0.5g to 1.5g of ground ginger could be the answer to treating nausea and vomiting in pregnant women. Good bye morning sickness!
It’s not just pregnant women who need relief from constant nausea though. Nausea effects many people while traveling, after surgery, and during chemotherapy. If the thought of throwing back ginger shots every morning makes you feel woozy already, try taking raw ginger in a capsule form instead.
