For those of you who are struggling with winter colds and flu, it’s a good idea to include ginger in your diet.
Not only is ginger a potent anti-oxidant which can support immune health, recent research has reported potential benefits of eating it with a number of chronic diseases including diabetes and heart disease. In the study, daily consumption was strongly associated with a lower risk of hypertension and coronary heart disease.
It’s beautifully warming and tastes delicious when used in a hot lemon drink. Simply chop approx a centimetre cubed piece of root and steep in hot water for 5 mins. Add fresh lemon to taste.
