In our July blog post on the benefits of lemon water, we discussed how it can provide the body with vitamin C, aid digestion, and prevent and reduce gout. However, you can also increase the flavor and nutrition of lemon water by adding additional ingredients to your water. This week, we focus on a classic blend: lemon and ginger.
The Health Benefits of Ginger
Ginger has been used for centuries in Asia as cure for a variety of ailments. Recent research has found that it can be effective in preventing and combating a range of health issues, including:
- Gastrointestinal problems – Ginger eliminates intestinal gas and soothes the intestinal tract. It can also act as a natural cure for motion sickness.
- Pregnancy-Related Nausea – In a double blind trial, ginger significantly reduced the severity of nausea for 70% of pregnant test subjects.
- Arthritis Pain – Research has shown that ginger can reduce pain and swelling in the joints of people suffering from arthritis.
Making Lemon and Ginger Flavored Water
To make lemon and ginger flavored water, start by adding the juice of a lemon half to 12 ounces of room temperature water. Next, grate about a half tablespoon of peeled fresh ginger root with a zester or cheese grater and add the grated ginger to the lemon water. Stir well and enjoy!
