Perfect Healthy Smoothie with Ginger

Recent study in the journal Medical Science Monitor revealed that consuming Ginger relieved migraine pain in 82% of sufferers. The credit goes to gingerols which inhibit prostaglandis and leukotrienes, inflammatory neurotransmitters that trigger head pain. Ginger also tames stomach upset, from general nausea to motion and morning sickness.

One more reason to consume ginger-root is that just 1 tsp. per day can end muscle and joint pain, according to Danish Researchers.
