Cold-Busting Lemon Ginger Hot Toddy

Lemon and ginger are key for knocking those cold viruses out cold.

From supporting liver health and fighting inflammation, this concoction is the perfect blend of good health!

Ginger is a potent anti-viral substance that prevents the adhesion of viruses to the upper respiratory mucosa. Lemon is high in vitamin C and raw honey is antimicrobial as well as a natural sweetener.

If you take this at the first sign of sickness, you can generally kick the cold to the curb rather quickly!

What you need:

2–4 ounces  (4-8 tbsp) of ginger juice (yup it’s a lot!)
juice of one-half lemon
large tablespoon of raw honey
1/8 teaspoon of cayenne pepper (optional)
Hot water

What you do:

Juice (or grate on a fine setting) 1–2 pounds of ginger; place juice in a jar and refrigerate.  Juice a fresh lemon and add ginger, honey and water to your favorite mug.

Drink 2–6 cups of this a day, sipping slowly throughout the day.
