Do you think ginger works better in a capsule or as a tea?

I think both!!! I drink ginger tea for so many conditions…either in bag form, or a crushed piece of whole ginger … if I’m really looking for a boost, I’ll add a 1/4 teaspoon of ginger powder to the pot with the crushed piece. Spicy, but in a soothing way. I’ve taken capsules as well, for instance, if I’m in a hurry. I find they works.

I drink ginger tea everyday anyway. When I’m sick, I just double up. Never taken a pill form of ginger.

I like to cut up fresh ginger and let it soak in a cup of hot water for like 10 minutes. Can’t always be sure of the purity of some powders.

I like the tea form. I think it absorbs better that way.

My wife likes it in tea form. Soothes her throat. Not sure if it works better, but has that added benefit when she has a sore throat.
