****************
Growing up, I was drowned in vitamins by my mother. There was a period in my life when I took 8 tablets a day – multivitamins, B complex, wheat grass extract, zinc tablets, English Primrose Oil, garlic extract, calcium tablets and vitamin C. Whenever I fell ill during that period, I would have to take the 6 tablets along with all my other “get well” tablets from the doctor.

Good thing my intake my vitamins had decreased over the years. Now I only take multivitamins, pro-biotic and vitamin C. My mother’s latest discovery is the
ginger root extract, hence I foresee an addition to my 3 tablets a day routine. Ginger root is a plant that grows abundantly in China and India where the root is used in both cooking and in medications.

As my sister and I often have problems with our digestive system, my very dedicated mother looked around for a traditional remedy. It seems that ginger root is one of the most popular herb purported to treat digestive and bowel disorders because of its ability to relax the stomach, break down protein and cleanse the colon.

Well then, I guess my table intake will be increased from 3 to 4 very soon.
