Stay Healthy with Ginger Lemon Tea
It's that time of year where everyone is getting sick. The flu is going around, allergies are attacking, and the common cold is making its appearance.
I have been using this recipe for a few years to fight off colds, or even prevent them from happening in the first place. Recently studies have come out showing that this recipe actually cuts sickness time by 72%!
Garlic - added antioxidants, promotes the white blood cells, clears out bacteria.
Cayenne Pepper - boosts metabolism which helps get the white blood cells to the infection faster.
All you do is heat up your mug of water, add 2 tablespoons of lemon juice, 1 tablespoon of honey and ginger and cinnamon to taste.
I had the flu while pregnant and when you are pregnant you're unable to take typical cold medications, I remembered this recipe and drank it twice a day. By the 3rd day the flu was completely gone, which was amazing!
So here's to staying healthy!
