Ginger is amazing for flus and colds with its ability to treat nausea and vomiting and it’s zesty peppery flavour to help relieve cough and congestion. We love to eat the fermented ginger after we finish this soda because not only is it tasty but we love the addition of live probiotics to boost my gut health.

NEED TO KNOW:
If you are not a big fan of ginger but you know it significantly helps for gut issues, don’t use as much in your ferment. Only use a couple of slivers, a little is better than none.
Refrigerate immediately and it can last there for up to 6 weeks.
