An Every Weekend-must-drink | Ginger Kashayam

When I was in my mom’s home, we used to have this every week on Sundays (a must when we have non-veg). Mom used to tell that it is very good for digestive problems and drinking this regularly will strengthen your body and clear any stomach ailments. When I got married, I found out that this is a regular practice happening in my MIL’s house also and so it is now a regular drink in my house too...

Read on to know the health benefits of Ginger:
# Holds carminative properties and can be consumed to relieve upset stomach
# Assists in arousing the secretion of mucus that calms the cough and sooths any scratchiness in the throat.
# Used to treat nausea, predominantly in the form of morning sickness, motion sickness and as a side effect of chemotherapy.
# Contains anti viral, anti toxic, and anti fungal functions, and is utilized for the avoidance of and management against the common cold.
# Functions as an antihistamine and helps in the treatment of allergies. It has anti inflammatory properties and may be consumed to cure rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, and a range of other muscular disorders.
# The roots of the Ginger are influential in slowing down the biosynthesis of prostaglandins which are accountable for causing inflammation
# Contains particular enzymes liable for catalyzing the proteins in the food, thus helping in digestion and the avoidance of cramps. The primordial Greeks used to have ginger after a hefty meal in order to simplify the digestion process.

# Guards against the growth of ulcers, surplus holes in the lining of your stomach.

# Facilitates in lowering cholesterol levels and averts the formation of blood clots.

# Utilized to resolve an upset stomach or treat harsh stomach illnesses such as dyspepsia or colic.

OMG… I didn’t know ginger has so many health benefits. Such a beneficial piece of root.

~*What U Need*~

Ginger – as needed (1 large piece)
Honey – 2 tbsp

Water – ¼ cup

How I Made
Cut the ginger into pieces. Blend it well with some water till the juice gets extracted.

Strain the juice. You can re-blend and extract some more juice from the pulp
Heat the juice till lukewarm. Add honey and mix well.
Drink hot in one gulp.

So thats it Folks...
With Love,
