Meet Ginger Cleanse! Made with ginger, cayenne pepper and lemon, this regeneratively-raised, organic beef bone broth is energetic, moving, and wildly complex. Here’s how Alysa, FOND’s founder and CEO, came up with this flavorful broth:
“When a customer asked me to make her a bone broth to help her lose weight, I knew it needed to be more than functional - I wanted her to ENJOY making this decision for herself every morning! My first go-to was ginger, shown to keep you fuller for longer, to aid in digestion, and to reduce the hip-to-belly fat ratio, I knew I wanted ginger to be the first ingredient in this requested flavor. Secondly, I wanted to turn up the heat to aid in thermogenesis with a little help from my friend, cayenne. Finally, to help keep things light and aid the liver, I added lemon to balance the heat and compliment the ginger. Of course, you can still reap these same benefits when cooking with this delicious little number. Research suggests that cooking with ginger helps you stay fuller longer and aids in the absorption of nutrients in the gut!”
Below, we’re digging into the benefits of each of our infusion’s star ingredients.
Ginger is a popular spice because of its distinct flavor and incredible health benefits. To start, it’s high in gingerol, a substance with powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.
One of ginger's most common uses is to keep nausea at bay. This is especially helpful for pregnant women dealing with morning sickness.
Next, ginger may help aid in weight loss by reducing body mass index (BMI) and blood insulin levels.
Have chronic indigestion issues? Ginger has been shown to speed up the emptying of your stomach; a slow emptying of the stomach is one of the major causes of indigestion.
Finally, ginger has been shown to fight the growth of bacteria, which can cause infections.
With a list like this, it’s no wonder this spice is the star of this beef bone broth!
Cayenne peppers have been used for thousands of years to treat many health problems, but they’re also great for adding a little bit of spice to any recipe. Capsaicin is the active ingredient in cayenne peppers that gives them their medicinal properties and their hot taste. First and foremost, capsaicin may help boost your metabolism and reduce your hunger.
Finally, the capsaicin in cayenne pepper may also aid in digestion by boosting the stomach’s defenses against infections, improving digestive function and helping to deliver enzymes to the stomach.
Lemons are best known for their high vitamin C content, which is known to support heart health, boost immunity, and even help the body better absorb collagen. In addition to vitamin C, lemons contain several beneficial plant compounds that may lower cholesterol.
Lemons may also aid in digestive health and support weight loss.
Between these benefits and its amazing flavor, we don’t blame you if you’re itching to give Ginger Cleanse a try! We recommend using it daily, whether you drink it on its own or use it in your favorite stir-frys or asian-inspired sauces.
