Ginger during the cold season

Benefits of raw ginger

You've probably already come across the small yellowish tubers in the supermarket or heard about the positive reputation of ginger. But have you ever tried raw ginger? Because the small root is not only suitable as a tea or cooking ingredient, it also has a number of benefits and nutrients when eaten raw.


Ginger contains a number of important nutrients that our body needs. These include calcium, iron, phosphorus and potassium, but also vitamins such as vitamin C, which is sensitive to heat and can therefore be lost quickly if ginger is prepared in the form of tea, for example.

Raw ginger is also characterized by its pungent taste, which is due to gingerol. This component is also sensitive to heat, making raw ginger particularly healthy but also particularly pungent. However, eating it raw is definitely worthwhile due to its many nutrients, which are particularly high compared to other processed ginger products.


Ginger can provide relief for digestive complaints and cold symptoms in particular. Vitamin C and gingerol also play a decisive role here. It also boosts the metabolism and has an antioxidant effect.

Ginger shots

If you don't feel like chewing raw ginger, you can use the following simple recipe to make your own ginger shots, which are particularly concentrated and effective.

Ingredients for approx. 5 shots:

  • 50 g ginger
  • 1 lemon
  • 50 ml agave syrup


  1. Peel the ginger and place in a blender with the other ingredients. Then blend everything and divide into small glasses through a sieve.
