Juice of the Week: Sweet Ginger

My kids call me the Ginger Queen because I’m likely to put ginger in almost anything. Besides adding spirit and flavor, ginger helps stimulate metabolism and promote weight loss. Ginger also improves circulation and boosts immunity.

Benefits

Warming ginger improves circulation by dilating arteries and helping lower cholesterol. With pineapple and plum, this juice supports your lungs and can help relieve coughs, congestion, and even asthma. Ginger ignites your digestive fire, while enzymes in pineapple help your body absorb nutrients.

Tip

Make sure your pineapple is ripe. If you’re not sure by looking at it, taste it. If it’s more acidic than sweet, it’s not ripe. The acids in unripe pineapple can damage your teeth and burn your mouth.
