Benefits of natural syrup for colds
We all, or almost all, know now more than ever – thanks to the world of information cybernetics – about the wonders that ginger, honey and lemon do together. Our grandmothers knew it very well, but these recipes were lost while the current medicine took advantage of the natural one.
They are very beneficial for your immune system as it effectively lifts it alone and even more combined. Both honey and lemon are effective against infections, and all three help fight inflammation, relieve the respiratory system and give you energy. In addition, this mixture acts directly on your immune system if you use it consistently.
So, prepare for cold season with the right path.
The following ingredients are needed:
- 2 lemons
- 1 medium-sized ginger root
- 500 gr of pure honey
Wash the lemon and cut into thin slices. Peel the ginger and cut thin slices as well. Put both in a clean 1L glass jar. Pour in the honey, but do not fill the jar to the top. Let it sit for a day so that the lemon and ginger get their juice.
Close the jar and place in the fridge for 1-2 months. When the mixture turns into a jelly, dilute it with a little hot boiled water (optional). Your remedy is ready.
The daily dose for adults – 2 tablespoons per day.
For children – 1/2 tsp.
