Ginger Tea And Constipation

Until recently, in fact over the past few days, even before reading about fermenting cabbage, I read about the benefits of ginger tea to address my personal health need.

Well! Things have rapidly changed. I now thinly slice off slivers from the fresh ginger root and eat it with my meals. How quickly we can developed a taste when we know the benefits to be appreciated.

Ginger Tea and Constipation

Herbalists for years have recommended ginger tea for the treatment of constipation. It has mild laxative effects and is often used to promote bowel activity. In addition, ginger tea acts as a mild appetite stimulant, strengthens the stomach, and promotes digestion, according to the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center.

Dosage Recommendations

In her book “Prescription for Herbal Healing,” author Phyllis Balch recommends that you use 2 teaspoons or 1 gram of powdered or fresh grated ginger root per cup of boiling water to prepare ginger tea. For constipation, drink 1 cup of ginger tea two to three times a day. Your doctor can also recommend the right dose for you.
