Ginger Lemonade- a simple elixir that gives your immune system a super boost during the cold and flu season!
Flu season has come early this year causing several in my household to come home with runny noses, coughs and congestion.
There are hundreds of over the counter drugs to relieve symptoms, but if you are like me, I prefer to treat illness naturally and foremost, PREVENT getting sick.

One of the simplest and most affordable things my family does to keep our immune system’s strong is to get our daily dose of vitamin C.
The daily recommendation is 65-95 milligrams a day and the maximum recommendation is 2,000 milligrams.
Lemons are high in vitamin C and ginger has potent anti-inflammatory properties. Both lemon and ginger combined, drank on a regular basis will keep our immune system’s strong.
Homemade ginger lemonade drank daily has several health benefits. It gives a boost to the immune system, reduces inflammation in the body, cleanses the liver, helps kill bacteria in the stomach and tastes great!
This is also one of my favorite remedies to give to my kids when they are feeling sick, and they love drinking it!
For coughs, we use this Ginger Lemonade in conjunction with the traditional steam tent remedy. It has been very helpful for releasing mucus from head colds and miserable dry coughs.
Be sure to give your immune system a super boost with this elixir that is packed with nutrition!
