Boost your immune system with a quick ginger shot recipe

This is one of my favorites when I feel like giving my immune system a little extra boost. No wonder why ginger is used so much across South-East Asia. 

It is super-strong, seriously. 🙂

All you need is a blender. Juicer works too, but for the texture, and the content I prefer the blender. 

Benefits of ginger: 

Ginger is among the world’s healthiest foods. Aromatic and spicy.

    • anti-inflammatory
    • fights germs
    • lowers blood sugar levels and
    • lowers cholesterol levels
    • reduces muscle pain and soreness
    • reduces menstrual pain 
    • antioxidant: protects against disease
    • relieves indigestion
    • may improves brain functions and protects against Alzheimer’s disease
Ingredients: 
  • 5 cm fresh ginger
  • 2 lemons or 3 limes or 100% bio jus version. Then about 50ml. 
  • pinch of cayenne pepper 
  • Optional, if you prefer more sweet flavors: 1-2 teaspoons of honey (I don’t use honey.) 

These quantities are just ideas. Feel free to add more or less depending on your taste. 

Instructions: 

1) peel the ginger root. My quick hack is to take a teaspoon to rub the skin off with its edges. Then chop it into a few smaller cubes. 

2) squeeze the lemons and add it to the blender, or add the juice. Add ginger, cayenne pepper and honey to the blender too. 

3) blend them all, pour in a glass and enjoy. 

As I mentioned above, this is a very strong shot, and it may tastes strange if you are not used to its intensity. You may get used to it with the second or third sip. If not, then feel free to add a little herbal tea. 

I drink these shots a few hours after meal and at least an hour before my next meal. After drinking it, I avoid drinking other fluids for at least half an hour-long, so that all these great ingredients can be well processed. 

Enjoy 🙂
