With just four ingredients and nothing complicated, you and your family will be sipping on this sweet liquid sunshiney drink in no time.
Let’s look at the healing benefits of the honey ginger lemonade ingredients and how this beverage supports your whole body.
Ginger is an ancient healing herb. It supports digestion and nutrient assimilation and helps to prevent colds, flu, vertigo, and motion sickness. If you’re planning a cruise or a waterborne vacation, bring your fresh ginger and ginger pills along!
Ginger can also help to alleviate menstrual cramps, nausea, heartburn, migraines, sore throats, exhaustion, fatigue, and constipation and it is great in providing relief from the stomach flu and food poisoning.
Ginger also acts as a natural painkiller for those who experience joint, muscle, and nerve pain. Ginger is an amazing immune booster and has been shown to protect against E.coli, Staph infections, and Candida.
Adding raw honey and fresh lemon juice enhances ginger’s flavor and adds to its protective and healing properties.
These healing citrus fruits contain powerful antibiotic and antiseptic properties. Lemons are rich in vitamins C and B-complex and minerals such as iron, calcium, magnesium, silicon, copper, and potassium. They help to cleanse and detoxify the entire body.
Although lemons have an acidic taste, they actually have an alkaline reaction in the body and can help to alkalize blood, cells, lymph, organs, and tissues. Lemons are known to help destroy putrefactive bacteria in the mouth and intestines which can help alleviate flatulence, indigestion, and constipation. Lemons contain a compound called limonene which is used to dissolve gallstones and kidney stones and can help to fight oral, lung, skin, breast, stomach, and colon cancer.
Lemons are also rich in bioflavonoids which can significantly boost the immune system and reduce inflammation in the body. Lemon juice is known to be particularly beneficial for colds, coughs, sore throats, hiccups, ear infections, fevers, arthritis, heart disease, COPD, atherosclerosis, diabetes, high cholesterol, autoimmune disorders, stroke, and cancer.
Topically, lemon juice is a great remedy for wrinkles, warts, toothaches, corns, sunburns, poison ivy, acne, psoriasis, and as a hair rinse and facial astringent.
Raw honey is a miraculous healing food and is beneficial wherever you bring it in. Raw honey possesses antibiotic, antifungal, antiviral, antiseptic, and anti-aging properties. Raw honey provides far more benefits than heated honey as it is full of active enzymes, amino acids, vitamins, minerals, and fatty acids vital for preventing illness and disease.
Raw honey contains vitamins such as B-complex and Vitamin C as well as minerals such as calcium, magnesium, potassium, and zinc. Raw honey has the power to strengthen the immune system, promote digestive health, reduce throat irritation, stabilize blood pressure, calm nerves, relieve morning sickness, balance blood sugar, heal ulcers, purify the blood, fight off colds and flu, soothe sore throats and laryngitis, and flush the kidneys.
Raw honey also functions as an expectorant and benefits respiratory conditions such as bronchitis and asthma. Raw honey promotes restorative sleep and can aid in healing and rebuilding the body during the night.
Raw Honey naturally kills germs by drawing out the moisture within. This makes raw honey an excellent first aid cream to apply externally, like a natural Neosporin, to cuts, abrasions, rashes, and sores to keep the wounds sterile and quicken the healing process.
