Just like a ninja, these wellness shots have a spicy kick. And ginger has far more to offer than just being a popular household spice, it boasts a ton of health benefits and medicinal properties too. Gingerol is the main bioactive compound in ginger, and is responsible for most of the medicinal benefits. More gingerol is found in fresh ginger than dried, as gingerol is found in the natural oils of the root—so if you’re looking for a way to get all of the benefits ginger has to offer, make sure you use fresh ginger!
It can be tricky trying to incorporate the same amount of ginger found in a ginger shot into your diet each day, so by taking a ginger shot, all the health benefits of gingerols are concentrated in one quick sip. Although these little juice shots may just seem like a health and wellness fad, ginger elixirs have been used for thousands of years to treat nausea, colds, arthritis etc, not to mention the additional benefits from other ingredients in this petite drink. So here's how to give these a shot, (pardon the pun)!

-Juice of 1 orange
-1 Tbsp Honey
