Ginger Honey Is A Super Food. Here’s Why
‘Adrakwaali Chai’ has a special place in our life. In the fog of winter, or when the rains knock, the first thing we crave for is Chai. Ginger is a power home remedy root that naanis and daadis have long advocated to sort out our colds and coughs. And Honey, while it’s known to have weight loss properties, its power is doubled when mixed with ginger. When both the elements combine, they get packed with amazing health benefits. Here’s how
Home Remedy for Cough and Cold
Ginger honey helps in flushing out toxins from your body and soothe your harsh throat in cold . Honey also works as a natural cough suppressant. Not only the mixture deals with the flu but also strengthens the immune system, thereby resisting the body to allow any such harmful virus to enter.
Helps with Indigestion
Ginger comes with innumerable properties that make it an amazing cure for digestive problems. Cherry on the cake is that both ginger and honey have antioxidant properties that strengthens our immune system. Bile, a yellowish or dark brown fluid aids the digestion of lipids in the small intestine. The mixture helps in aiding the production of bile and hence promoting good level of digestion. Bile is produced by the liver. It also stimulates the development of intestinal flora which allows for proper movements of bowels and deals with the gastrointestinal problems too!

Menstrual Cramps are painful but a regular part of a girl’s life. I still remember my mother would provide me with ginger tea especially to cure the pain.

This helps in lowering down the blood pressure and also protects you from being vulnerable to health issues like strokes and heart attacks.
Saying that every person be it a child or an adult goes through stress today won’t be an exaggeration. Children have to deal with their studies and hectic schedules and adults have to deal with their work. So stess, unfortunately has become a part of our life. However, the healing properties and strong aroma of both ginger and honey has proven to be a stress buster.
