Imagine having a migraine, nausea, or even an upset stomach and within hours of consuming a specific food it disappears. Ginger has been around for over 2,000 years and is known to improve health. The United States of America first introduced ginger through a variety of ways. The most common one known to citizens is served on a sushi plate and is known as picked ginger. Most friends of mine disregard the little pink or yellow dish on the side of their plate, simply because they do not know the health benefits of pickled ginger.
The first time trying ginger I was a bit skeptical due to the texture and after taste it left in my mouth. However, once being informed on how ginger helps fight off heart disease and lowers one's cholesterol, I decided it was best to continue eating it whenever it was presented. Knowing that heart problems and strokes are present in my families' health history, I became persuaded that ginger would be the first step towards improving my health. Of course, a majority of the time when people see me eating chunks of ginger their initial reaction is "grossed out". I explain to them the benefits and the whole point of consuming ginger is to help my health.
Imagine everyone's first shot of alcohol. A majority of reactions are "this tasted so bad". Still people end up taking more shots because they become informed that by drinking alcohol you become intoxicated and intoxication, if done in moderation, can lead to a "good time" according to social media and college.
So, if you ever come across ginger think of it as a shot of tequila. Yes, the taste isn't the best. However, the outcome will be interesting. Of course, everything should be done in moderation. Don't get drunk off ginger shots.
