Ginger is considered to be one of the best detoxifying herbs, frequently recommended in cleansing programs and detox diets. This beneficial spice has been used in medicinal causes for thousands of years, due to its antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-ulcer properties.
Ginger contains powerful detoxifying properties, which are mainly due to the concentration of gingerol and shoga. These both possess anti-inflammatory and anti-spasmodic effects on the gastrointestinal system.
Ginger, when using a powerful mineral base, such as Epsom salt, in a bathwater medium, creates a process called reverse osmosis. This process eliminates salt and detoxifies the body, and at the same time, it allows the entrance of magnesium and sulfates into the body.
