This is the juice to make when you have severe insomnia (like I do) but can't catch up with your sleep because you have a lot to study for and a speech to rehearse (like I do) and are developing a headache or migraine (like I am--No! Was!).
I find that with this juice, which I'm drinking right now, the carotenoids are easily absorbed for a great enzyme boost, so there's some nice energy there, and the ginger is keeping those nasty prostaglandins at bay, helping to cure my headache!
I'm ready for the day!
Down with over-the-counter mumbo jumbo they all call medicine!
Nature is the way! Right on!
As you know, ginger is a warming herb, so you can adjust this according to your taste. I like a lot of heat where ginger is concerned, and this is the dose that tends to ease my headaches.
With this said, I am not a physician and yadda yadda yadda, just speaking from my experience. Always research what you're contemplating on consuming to know how it could possibly affect you.
And, just for the record, "ginger root" is an incorrect term for it. It's a rhizome, a subterranean stem, not an actual root.
Of course I'd point this out being a horticulture student, but respect the plant, man! It's like going up to another person and calling them a butt face because their sense of anatomy is all wrong!
