Ginger, Lemon, and Honey: The Power 3 Combination for Health

Ginger, lemon, and honey have been used for health for hundreds of years as a tea commonly used for assisting the body in handling colds, flu, and sinus infections; lemon, honey, and ginger are a natural way to help the immune system.

Why Take Lemon, Ginger, and Honey for Digestion

Ginger contains 400 natural compounds and is sought after for its digestive and anti-inflammatory history. Lemons provide powerful digestive enzymes, and honey has a natural scraping effect on the intestines (clearing away toxic build-up).

In Ayurveda, the digestive fire is considered the cornerstone of health. Without it, the entire bodily system cannot function properly. Thus, spices and warm foods are commonly used in this ancient medical system of India. 

Ginger naturally warms the body, supporting circulation and lowering high blood pressure. This spicy root has been used for thousands of years to treat ailments such as colds, migraines, nausea, arthritis, and hypertension. It has also been known to be helpful in relieving indigestion & constipation and improving blood circulation & nutrient absorption.
