Ceylon ginger is a powerful superfood with anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects. Ginger tea or ginger brews (without the addition of tea leaves) may not only rejuvenate your body but refresh your mind as well.
Although it offers an impressive array of health benefits, ginger tea may also come with a few side effects, only if consumed in excess. But how many cups of ginger tea is too much and is it good to drink ginger tea every day? Keep reading!
Is Ginger Tea Good For You?
When consumed in small doses, ginger tea or ginger brews are considered to be one of the best herbal beverages that may aid in the treatment and prevention of a number of health problems. It is recommended that around 1,000 mg of ginger can be consumed safely, every day. This is equal to around 1 cup of our Pure Ginger Brew.
Nature’s Rare Pure Ginger Brew is a soothing herbal beverage made out of single-origin, raw, untouched ginger. Our ginger brew may support blood circulation, regulate blood sugar and improve cognitive performance. It may also build immunity, reduce muscle pains and inflammation, aid in weight loss, improve your respiratory system and reduce cholesterol levels.
Ginger is generally recognized as safe by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), including for those who are breastfeeding. However, it may be best for those who are pregnant to check with their physician prior to consumption.
If you’re looking to expand on your flavor palate, add a bit of honey and lemon into your ginger tea. Honey lemon ginger tea benefits those with colds and sinus infections.
What Is The Best Time To Drink Ginger Tea?
We believe that your consumption of ginger tea should be based on your lifestyle, diet and activity. However, if you’re looking to make the most of its benefits, the best time to drink ginger tea is in the morning, particularly within the first 30 minutes after you wake up. Not only may ginger tea cleanse your gut, but it also boosts your metabolism and improves your blood circulation, leaving you energized and ready to kick-start your day.
What Are The Side-Effects of Ginger Tea?
If taken in excess, ginger tea can cause mild but rare side-effects.
Consuming more than 5g of ginger a day may result in heartburn, diarrhea and abdominal discomfort. This is because excess ginger tea may produce high levels of acid in the stomach, resulting in aches, gas and bloating.
Anyone with pre-existing conditions like high blood pressure, gallstones, etc should consult their doctor before consuming beverages infused with ginger.
