Whenever I had an upset stomach or when I was sick with a cold, she would always brew up some homemade ginger tea which seemed to always do the trick.

Now as a mother myself, whenever my kids complain about a tummy ache, it’s ginger tea to the rescue!

Not to mention that it tastes great, keeps you warm and really invigorating!

Ginger has a long history of traditional and alternative herbal medicinal use.  Therefore, it’s worth noting the many health benefits ginger has which I will elaborate on more below.

What are the benefits of ginger and how does it help with keto?

Ginger is anti-inflammatory and has antioxidant properties.  It can also help relieve nausea and upset stomach as well as aid digestion and bloating especially after a meal heavy in fat.  According to studies, ginger may help improve weightloss and lower blood sugar.  For women, ginger is also known to be effective against menstrual pain when taken at the beginning of the menstrual period.

What is ginger tea?

Ginger tea is basically hot water infused with slices of fresh ginger root. It’s boiled for maximum effectiveness.

What’s the difference between using fresh ginger vs ginger tea bags?

Using fresh ginger to brew your own ginger tea will results in a much more tastier, gingery, spicy drink than using ginger tea bags which have been dried and processed.  Not to mention, fresh ginger will carry the full nutritional value rather than being diluted out through the processing.

What kind of sweetener do you recommend using to make keto ginger tea?

My personal preference is Monkfruit Erythritol Blend, but if you can also omit sweetener all together if you prefer.

Do I need to peel the ginger skin to make ginger tea?

Taste and nutrition wise, it makes no difference whether or not you peel your ginger before slicing.  Unpeeled ginger tea will have more bits of floating fibers in your tea, but it’s nothing a quick strain can’t fix.

  1. My method is slightly different.
    Boil water and fill cup to level. Transfer to NutriBullet cup and add knob of ginger unpeeled to taste. Blitz and undo cap. I then pour back into cup via a strainer.
    I have also added a small piece of turmeric with a pinch of black pepper to activate, and now my NutriBullet cup is golden,

    I make my ginger tea a little different becuase I LOVE the taste of ginger. About a quarter ounce peeled and grated fliis my strainer. I will add the bulk, that is the leftover strain as well and sometimes a couple of tea bags, green or black. My brewer will bring to a boil and auto turn off after about twenty seconds of boil.Let it steep over night, refridgerate and reheat in same brewer for mix in pancakes, oatmeal or by itself. For real strong brew, leave un peeled over night before grating. ENJOY !
