Have you consumed fresh ginger before? If so, and you haven't experienced issues, we don't anticipate a concern. Our shots are full of ginger, which can pack a punch. If it's your first time trying the shots you can take one half with a meal, saving the other half in the fridge to enjoy the next day. Gradually, depending how you react, you can increase the dose to the full shot on an empty stomach to increase absorption of nutrients. However, we recommend consulting with your doctor concerning any medical issues.
