Digestive issues are prevalent in today’s fast-paced modern world. Many people suffer from weakened immune systems that continue to be depleted by their stressful environments. Ancient cultures have used ginger for thousands of years to aid digestion, relieve nausea and reduce inflammation. An old Indian proverb states, “Everything good is found in ginger,” and Ayurvedic texts refer to ginger as a “universal great medicine.” Even NASA uses ginger to alleviate nausea for their astronauts in space.
Most health food remedies use ginger juice or dried ginger. For ImmuneSchein Ginger Elixirs, we use only fresh organic ginger root, creating a powerful flavor packed with nutrients. The combination of ginger with lemon and honey has been used for centuries by different medicinal traditions. Lemon juice, which contains vitamin C, is a powerful immune-boosting antioxidant. It supports the cleansing of the body and the release of waste materials, such as free radicals. Foods that are high in vitamin C help the body battle colds and flus.
