Ginger Root | Benefits + Usage

The Chinese scholar Confucius ate fresh ginger with every meal


Ginger root goes down in history as one of the most traded spices. Indigenous to China, ginger spread throughout Asia to the Spice Islands, the Caribbean and India before making a pit stop in Europe. Widely used as both a spice and as medicine, the poplarity of ginger grew exponentially due to its versatility and countless benefits.
