Ginger lemon tea for immune boost

Ginger has been used as folk remedy and in culinary for thousands of years. It adds delicious flavors to food and powerful healing to the body.

It has more than 12 antioxidants high levels of vitamin C, magnesium and other minerals.

Ginger is often used for upset stomach, morning sickness, nausea, migraines, arthritis,  respiratory issues, mucus and phlegm. 

It is high in gingerols and shaogals that help relieve a sore throat and drain nose congestion and are also said to kill rhinoviruses which cause cold and flu. 

I love using ginger root to make tea for fast relief of nausea and upset stomach, and beginning stages of colds and flu. Chewing on a piece of fresh ginger helps to warm up vocal cords and relieve sore throat. 

During this time of coronavirus infection, it’s helpful to nourish and strengthen our bodies by using natural remedies provided by mother earth.

Here is my favorite ginger tea recipe that will have you feeling nourished and give you an immune boost.

What you need:

2 inches of ginger root sliced into thin circles

1/2 tea spoon of cayenne pepper

1 and a 1/2 litres of water

1 Tbsp of honey

1/2 lemon sliced

Instructions

Cook the first 4 ingredients, low temperature for 60 min until the water turns light brown

Add lemon in the last 15 min.

If you prefer, you can use brown sugar, stevia, or no sugar at all.

I like to use honey as it has anti-inflammatory properties and soothes sore throat and eases coughs.

You may also add peppermint leaves or a few cloves for extra taste.

Drink it warm and enjoy!
