With the change of weather, this is a great drink to have to boost your immune system.
I would recommend to also have it before and/or after a meal to help digest your food.
What's great about this drink is that you can have it either warm or cold. When it's drank cold, it is very refreshing. My husband says it tastes like a lemonade. And when it's warm, it is very soothing, making it perfect to drink when you're feeling sick or about to get sick, or when you just want to relax!
Ginger - Ginger is an anti-inflammatory, antiviral, antibacterial and anti-parasitic. It is also great to have when you are feeling stressed. It relieves nausea and even pain! I love to suck on ginger when I have a sore throat, as it relaxes the muscles in my throat. It's a natural lozenge!
Lemons - Other than the fact that lemons contain vitamin C that is highly absorbable, it also raises the alkaline level in our body. Our body is either alkaline or acidic depending on the food we eat. For example, if you eat dairy or animal protein, the level of acidity in your body will increase. And when the level of acidity in our body is high, it can cause inflammation, which leads to many diseases/illnesses. We will get While on the other hand, alkalinity in the body helps to prevent us from getting sick and prevent the growth of cancer cells.
Isn't food from nature so marvellous? Natural medicines are all around us if we are willing to look.
Now, who's ready to have a glass or two of this ginger-lemon tonic?
2 Liters of filtered water
1/4 cup of grated ginger
2 freshly squeezed lemons
Place the grated ginger and filtered water in a pot and bring to boil, then simmer for 1 hour. (Don't need to cover the pot with a lid)
Strain into a large bowl. Then, add the lemon juice and stir.
Transfer the mixture into a 1-Liter bottle or jar to store. Or serve some of it warm right away, making it like a tea.
