Healthy drinks that are served as a shot normally don’t taste very well …. A lot of people don’t like the taste of a wheatgrass shot for example. Well in that case, you will most likely not appreciate the taste of a Ginger Shot, but it’s certainly effective. Move over coffee, because this is how you wake up your body!
When you start to feel a bit under the weather a ginger shot may be a good natural remedy to help your immune system a bit. So if you are starting to feel sick (or right before) with a runny nose, sneezing, fever and cold chills … try a ginger shot.
Usually, a ginger shot consists of three fresh ingredients:
- Cayenne pepper
Ginger provides an upset stomach and digestive relief. Since 80% of your immune system is in your gut, you want to keep it healthy and balanced. It will warm you up and lessen aches and pains that come with the cold and flu. Ginger is a perfect expectorant and can help break up mucus in the lungs. Ginger will also soothe a painful sore throats.
boosts your immunity, detoxify the body and contain vitamin C.
Cayenne can treat fever and is great for a good blood circulation. It can also be used with nausea and other digestive complaints. All you need is a dash.
Here’s how to make a Ginger Shot?
- Juice ½-1 whole lemon (or squeeze the lemon)
- Juice (or grate) 1-inch piece of ginger
- Add a dash or two of cayenne pepper
Knock it back (if you can all in one go). You’ll feel the effects almost immediatly. One thing is for sure, you’ll be awake right away. When you’re already sick three a day will be good, otherwise (when you are just a bit under the weather) one a day will be sufficient.
Ginger juice is simply one of the most perfect health tonics on earth.
