Boost your inmune system with Lemongrass ginger drink

August 19, 2017

When I feel like I am going to get a cold and I need a boost to my inmune system, this is the drink I always prepare. Ginger may soothe a sore throat and suppress a cough, settle an upset stomach, clear sinus, chest congestion, and reduce nausea. The effects are immediate, and it won’t make you drowsy.

 

This herbal tea has a strong ability to calm you and make you relaxed, that’s why it is famously served in tropical spa before and after treatment. You can drink it cold or warm.

 

 

Ginger

 

Ginger has valuable medicinal uses, from preventing  cancer, to relieving migraine and arthritis pain. It helps with morning sickness, treat menstrual cramps, alleviate nausea.

 

 

Lemongrass

 

The health benefits of lemongrass include relief from stomach disorders, insomnia, respiratory disorders, fever, aches, infections, rheumatism and edema. The defensive antioxidant activity of the lemongrass herb protects against antibiotic-resistant Staphylococcus aureus and helps in maintaining optimum cholesterol levels, cellular health, nervous system, healthy skin and immune system. It is also effective in treating type 2 diabetes, cancer, and obesity, while also aiding in detoxification. It is extensively used in aromatherapy and helps to combat fatigue, anxiety and body odor.
