Spicy and pungent, the humble ginger is ubiquitous in Indian cooking. However, what most people don't know is that ginger is high in vitamin C, B6, magnesium and even has a small amount of iron. Ginger tea is said to be very beneficial for the body and may also be taken with honey, lemon or herbs to mask its strong taste. Below are some of the reasons why drinking ginger tea on a regular basis is good for you.

1. Relieve nausea

If you suffer from motion sickness, having a cup of ginger tea before travelling can help to prevent the nausea and vomiting.

2. Improve digestion

It is an excellent remedy for bloating, especially after a full meal. It works well for moments of indigestion because the properties in it will increase the body's absorption of the food eaten.

3. Reduce inflammation

Ginger contains anti-inflammatory properties that help with muscle and joint problems. You can also take a cup before hitting the gym to prevent muscle aches.

4. Improve blood circulation

The nutritional properties of this spice help to improve blood circulation in the body. It can also prevent fat from depositing in the arteries, preventing heart attacks.

5. Relieve menstrual cramps

Women suffering from menstrual cramps might find ginger helpful in relieving the pain. Aside from drinking it, it is thought that wrapping the lower abdomen with a hot towel soaked in the tea will help to relax the muscles.
