Recipe for Ginger Lemon Tea
This Recipe for Ginger Lemon Tea first came about when I decided to wing off of caffeine. Having started drinking coffee as a young teenager, I was incredibly reliant on multiple coffee fixes per day. As I began developing autoimmune symptoms during college, I knew so much caffeine wasn’t the best for my gut health or cortisol levels. Because of this, I began to take a step back. (Coffee is not at all necessarily bad for you. In fact, it can have many health benefits and positively contribute to a healthy lifestyle! This is, however completely based upon each individual’s body).
I’m a strong believer in finding replacements instead of restrictions. Because of this, I turned to herbal and caffeine-free teas instead! After all, the ritual of sipping on a warm and cozy morning drink was a large part of my “addiction”.
In an effort to turn my gut health around and reduce inflammation levels, I began making Ginger Lemon Tea each morning! Ginger lemon tea is more than tasty, but it also has incredible anti-inflammatory and healing properties!
The Benefits of Ginger
Ginger is a bright yellow, spicy root that has been used medicinally for years! Ginger contains gingerol, a potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory that gives ginger many of its healing benefits. And with over 23.5 million Americans dealing with some type of autoimmune disease, excessive chronic inflammation is much more prevalent than one may assume.
Ginger root has long been known to soothe an upset stomach, reduce inflammation, and increases circulation. It’s the exact reason why sipping on ginger ale is a common stomach bug protocol.
If you’re not already using ginger in your everyday life, now is a great time to begin exploring new ways to add it in! We promise, your stomach will thank you!
From juices and smoothies, to both sweet and savory recipes, ginger is versatile, and easy to incorporate in a variety of ways.
