One of the health benefits of fresh ginger is that it contains gingerol. A favourite of alternative wellness teachings, gingerol is the bioactive compound in ginger and it has powerful antioxidant effects.

Eating fresh ginger boosts your immune system, and can fortify it by giving it some much-needed support. In addition to its antioxidant properties the gingerol contained within the root has proven antibacterial and antiviral qualities.

Cooking with fresh ginger is easy. Chop up fresh ginger with chili and garlic and you’ll have a zingy and zesty seasoning base to fry your meat and veg in before adding your carbs like rice. Of course, you can also enjoy ginger in sweet dishes as well as savoury ones, like ginger ice cream or in cakes.
