Ginger is an extremely healthy root that has a plethora of health benefits. One of them is helping you detox.  With its natural detoxifying properties, ginger makes a great way to detox by stimulating your digestive system and helping to cleanse your organs. Fortunately, there are a few ways you can use ginger to detox. First, you can make ginger tea. This is a rich and aromatic warm drink you can sip in the morning and evening that tastes great and helps boost your digestive system to trigger detoxification. You can also add ginger to the water you sip throughout the day.

Herbal Teas

There are a lot of herbal teas that promote health by aiding in detoxification. Some examples of teas with detoxification properties are red clover (contains high antioxidant compounds), chicory (helps remove toxins from body by boosting metabolism), and dandelion (high in enzymes). You can even use a variety of teas throughout the week to enjoy new flavors of tea and get the benefits of a variety of different herbs. But remember, because many herbal teas also have strong medicinal properties, it is always best to speak with your doctor or pharmacist so that your tea doesn’t interfere with any medications you are taking for a health condition. Likewise, be wary of “cleansing” teas such as Senna, which serves as a powerfully strong laxative and can cause gas and cramping.
