As always, "Lagom" is best!!
important to think about it even with ginger.
Because ginger contains oil called gingerols and shogaols that are super beneficial in the " LAGOM" dose, but if you were to overdose on the intake of ginger, your liver may have problems processing the oil.
Scientists say different.... someone says that a daily intake of max 4 grams of fresh ginger is okay!
