Ginger is among some of the world’s oldest and most popular medicinal spices. It has powerful anti-inflammatory compounds called gingerols, making it a highly effective painkiller, helping those who deal with joint, muscle, and nerve pain. Ginger is also a highly effective immune-booster and has been shown to provide relief for a wide range of illnesses.

Ginger + Lemon + Cayenne is a triple-threat juice shot that not only cleanses and detoxifies the body, but it also boosts the metabolism. Ginger and lemon contain compounds that facilitate digestion and reduce nausea. The cayenne contains a compound called capsaicin, which helps reduce inflammation and pain, while also supporting the metabolism. All three of these ingredients combined pack serious medicinal benefits.
