Benefits of Ginger Lemon with Honey Tea

Lemon, honey and ginger tea is often used as an alternative or in addition to modern medication for the cold and flu. Each of the ingredients have unique medicinal qualities and when they are combined, they create a soothing tea that can relieve symptoms and boost the immune system. Lemon, ginger, honey tea can also provide health benefits for those not suffering from a cold or flu.It’s very simple to prepare. All you need is fresh ginger, a lemon, honey, your favourite tea bag and water.

  • 1 or 2 fresh teaspoon of ginger, grated – it’s potent stuff so add according to your bravery level that day
  • juice of 1/2 lemon, save 1 slice to garnish
  • 1 or 2 teaspoon of honey
  • 1 tea bag of your choice
  • 1-2 cups water

Use the zester to grate some ginger into a tea filter bag into a mug then add lemon juice, honey and your favourite tea (mine is Yogi Berry Antioxidant) and hot water. Add a slice of lemon and ginger to garnish.

Lemon

Lemon juice is a source of vitamin C, an antioxidant vital to a strong immune system. When added to a tea, lemon juice can provide the immune system with a much-needed boost. The vitamin C in lemon juice can also neutralize the activity of free radicals in the body, reducing the inflammation and swelling caused by free radicals in the body.

Ginger

Traditionally, ginger has been used for the relief of gastrointestinal distress. However, modern science has discovered that ginger has other therapeutic properties as an antioxidant and an anti-inflammatory. Ginger can promote a healthy sweating that aids in the detoxification of the body, which is often helpful when suffering from a cold or flu. Ginger is also helpful for settling upset stomachs as well as the dizziness, nausea, vomiting and cold sweating, which can accompany gastrointestinal distress.

Honey

Honey has a soothing effect on sore throats, making it an effective and natural cough suppressant. Honey may also boost the body’s immune system by aiding in the production of white blood cells. This improves the body’s ability to fight infection and decreases the risk of fevers. The natural sweetness of honey also balances the tartness of the lemon and the ginger’s spice, giving honey, lemon and ginger tea its soothing flavour.
