I first tried one last summer when my stomach was upset. I was in such discomfort, I couldn't do anything but think of a way to get better. Then I remembered: ginger. It's a tried-and-true natural remedy for digestive issues like nausea, motion sickness, crampy stomachs, etc. Unfortunately, most ginger ales (Canada Dry, Vernors) don't contain any ginger at all, so they don't offer health benefits. They don't taste much like ginger either: more of a syrupy, vague flavor. Since I wasn't previously a ginger lover, Reed's was an acquired taste for me. But now I love it, love it, love it. And no wonder. Reed's Premium is made with fresh ginger root and sweetened with only pineapple juice and honey (it's an old Jamaican recipe). Oh, and how did my tummy do? I felt some relief immediately, and 1/3 of the way into the bottle I was completely better.
