It’s loaded with broad-spectrum antibacterial, antiviral, antioxidant and anti-parasitic properties, making it the perfect natural remedy! So, if you find yourself surrounded by sick people or maybe you’re trying to treat a cold or flu that hit you hard and fast, this recipe is for you.

DID YOU KNOW? Ginger has broad-spectrum antibacterial, antiviral, antioxidant and anti-parasitic properties, making it the perfect natural remedy to help prevent and treat certain conditions.

Ginger has a very long history of use in various forms of traditional and alternative medicine. It’s been used to aid digestion, reduce nausea, and help fight the flu and common cold, to name a few of its purposes.

The unique fragrance and flavor of ginger come from its natural oils, the most important of which is gingerol. Gingerol is the main bioactive compound in ginger. It’s responsible for much of ginger’s medicinal properties.

I recommend consuming 2-6 cups of this tea daily for prevention and/or treatment of the cold or flu.

Additionally, this tea is excellent before or after meals to help reduce symptoms of gas, bloating, acid-reflux or digestive discomfort.
