What Are The Benefits Of Ginger Shots?
Ginger shots are full of antioxidants that help fight inflammation.
When ginger is processed into a shot, it becomes easier to assimilate the potent nutrients that give ginger its antioxidant properties.
It has been known to aid in digestion, reduce nausea and prevent motion sickness. Germination also breaks down anti-nutrients found in raw food – which makes it easier for our bodies to absorb many nutrients!
How Many Times A Day Can You Take A Ginger Shot?
Ginger shots can be taken up to three times per day.
If you experience any adverse effects, reduce your dosage until the root has built up your immunity again. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, consult with your doctor before taking ginger shots.
Do Ginger Shots Really Work?
However, if drinking the shot does not provide relief for what ails you…try adding more fresh ginger root to it!
Your body will very much appreciate it, and it makes for an even more potent drink that packs much more of a punch – literally.
Does Jamba Juice Have Ginger Shots?
Jamba Juice provides ginger shots when you order one of their “healthier” menu options.
The shots are made with whole, fresh ginger – just like Selena’s recipe!
Do Ginger Shots Help With Weight Loss?
Ginger is known to aid in digestion and reduce nausea which reduces cravings for unhealthy food.
When our bodies have a hard time breaking down nutrients found in raw food, we tend to eat more overall in an effort to get the necessary vitamins and minerals that our bodies need.
Thus, ginger shots may help with weight loss because it makes your body want to absorb more nutrients.
What If I Don’t Have A Blender?
You can juice the ginger root instead- just be careful not to squeeze all the juice out after, or strain it through cheesecloth if you don’t have a fine-mesh sieve on hand. The ginger shot will be blended enough since honey and lemon juice are added too.
What Is A Good Substitute For Ginger Shots?
If you cannot drink ginger shots due to pregnancy or other medical reasons, try adding organic fresh ginger root to your diet instead!
Make your own drinks at home with the Selena Gomez Ginger Shot recipe above…it’s a perfect detoxifying drink for you and all your friends!
