During your period, ginger tea can be extremely useful if you suffer from menstrual pain. Ginger contains compounds called zingibain that are believed to help reduce inflammation in the body and inhibit the production of prostaglandins, which contract your uterus. Studies have also shown that ginger can reduce pain severity. Research has found that ginger is equally effective as ibuprofen in relieving menstrual pain.
Here’s how you can make ginger tea
1. Crush a 2 to 3 inches piece of ginger or thinly slice a couple of inches of ginger root and add it to hot water to steep for awhile
2. Add honey and a slice of lemon
3. Serve right away
If you’re also troubled by menstrual pain, give ginger tea a try!
