Ginger lemon honey tea recipe

Remedy for coughs, colds & flus

honey lemon ginger remedy


Ginger contains a bioactive compound, gingerol, which helps you sweat out the toxins in your body, which is helpful when you have a cold or flu.

Ginger is also a helpful home remedy for cough, settling upset stomachs, dizziness, nausea, vomiting and cold sweats.

Honey is a natural, cough suppressant (Which explains why the most effective cough drops use honey.) It also improves the body's ability to fight infections and decrease the risk of fevers.

Lemons contain high levels of vitamin C (especially the pith, the white part we usually avoid.) Vitamin C helps boost the immune system and neutralizes the body.

This reduces the inflammation in the body and swelling in the body when fighting off a common cold. 

Lemon also has the natural acidity that helps break down mucous as well as alleviate congestion.
