I love my Nutribullet Rx! It is HUGE, and the motor is so much more powerful. I love that it starts and stops on its own and I don't have to guess how long to hold it down like you do with the other versions (original and the 900). Sometimes it doesn't like the fresh ginger root - I think the skin needs to be peeled - and it gets tangled on the blade, stopping the blast. Would using ginger ground in spice form (like I do with Tumeric and other seeds like flaxseed) be a good alternative? I noticed fresh ginger is very expensive, but I haven't checked the prices on ginger as a spice in bottled form. Also, is there any difference between the health benefits of anything you put in the nutribullet fresh or in ground form if it is available as a spice or grounded?

Typically the fresh form of a root or spice is best but the spice is a great option is the fresh is not available. The ground version of products usually has a lower nutrient content due to oxygen exposure and oxygen breaks down nutrients.
