The best natural flu remedy! Feeling a cold coming on, or just a bit run down, why not try this out, I promise it works!
The ginger stimulate the digestive system, warms you up, and helps break up mucus in the lungs, as well as soothe even the most painful sore throats. The lemon provides a nice dose of vitamin C whilst also boosting immunity and detoxifying the body. While the cayenne is potent and effectively treats fevers, poor circulation, nausea, and other digestive complaints (you only need a tiny bit to benefit from its medicinal properties).
I tend to take about 3 of these shots throughout the day, whenever I am feeling a little run down or I will have just one shot in the morning for an immune boost.
Tip: So that your not having to continuously make it throughout the day, juice a large amount of it in one go, as it will happily last in the fridge in a sealed container for up to 3 days.
- Juice 1 lemon
- Juice 1-inch piece of ginger
- Add a dash or two of cayenne pepper
Put ingredients in a shot glass. Stir. Knock it back! You’ll feel the effects fairly quickly.17
