Health Benefits of Ginger Tea
Avoid health issues from escalating, or even occurring, by regularly drinking ginger tea which increases non-specific immunity.
When the juice of the ginger root (Zingiber Officinale) is infused with the brew of chamomilla leaves, also known as tea, it becomes a medicine which cures several illnesses from the common cold to headaches and nausea.
Natural Remedy for Colds and Infections of the Lungs:
Ginger tea can be made by adding grated ginger, paste, powder, or ginger juliennes to tea which is drunk for medicinal purposes. Note that ready-to-use ginger tea is not as efficacious as freshly made ginger tea. Ginger’s water-soluble alkaloids and phytochemicals dissolve in water during preparation of the ginger tea. So, when honey is added to it, ginger tea becomes a magic potion to cure congestion of the chest, asthma, and wheezing coughs.
- The cure for Nausea:
When a little lemon juice is added to it, ginger tea helps fight off nausea caused by a headache or travel sickness or even simply indigestion. Quite a few patients have found relief by drinking ginger tea when suffering nausea after surgery or chemotherapy. Use of ginger tea to overcome morning sickness during pregnancy is dicey as a few patients have reacted adversely. Do so only under professional guidance.
For most people drinking ginger tea without lemon juice is a panacea for flatulence and hyperacidity.
