Ginger Tonic

The therapeutic uses of ginger root are too numerous to discuss in this short blog post, so I’ll touch on just a few of the properties that can potentially boost fertility.

First, ginger root is a potent anti-inflammatory herb which may reduce pain as effectively as NSAID’s and aspirin (menstrual pain included!). This anti-inflammatory action is due, in part, to the free radical protection provided by ginger. Excess inflammation and free radical damage negatively affect every part of the reproductive process.

Second, ginger root improves circulation and promotes blood flow to the reproductive organs.

Third, this ginger tonic has a very alkalizing effect on body chemistry, which promotes efficient enzyme activity in every chemical process going on in your body.

And lastly, ginger root improves digestive capabilities, making the nutrients in your healthy fertility diet more effectively absorbed. 

Sip on 2-3 mugs of this spicy tonic in the evenings, 30-45 minutes after dinner.
