Ginger Lemon Cinnamon Tea: Cold Remedy? [RECIPE INCLUDED]

If you liked my post, please share 🙂

I was literally boasting about a week ago that I hadn’t caught a cold in like two years. And I was really talking up the immune system and different foods. You know what happened? I got a frickin’ cold. And it feels just how I remember it, like I want to stay in bed and not do anything.

I’m trying to really take care of myself this time and not give in to the excuse “oh, I’m sick, let me just eat cream of wheat and sugar in bed all day.”

So, I’ve been making this ginger lemon cinnamon tea as a natural cold home remedy and it is delicious!!

Ginger

Ginger is a low calorie food that is plentiful in antiviral and antibacterial antioxidants that help aim with arthritis, inflammation, and infections. It also helps prevent diabetes by regulating blood sugar and contains many cancer fighting agents!.

Another benefit I just learned today, is that is helps with exercise soreness. I might just be making this my daily tea when I recover!

Make sure you are using fresh ginger though, not a powder or flavoring!

Lemon

Am I the only one who, as a kid, would eat lemons like oranges? I’d just sit there and eat it like a normal piece of fruit, I love sour things!

Lemons are HIGH in Vitamin C which make them a perfect fruit to eat or drink the juice of during a cold. The antioxidants also make it antiviral and antibacterial and aids with congestion and sore throat.

I can verify that to be true because I am noticing a difference!

Cinnamon

Cinnamon is very popular in traditional Chinese medicine as a cold remedy. it has antibacterial and antifungal properties.

Less is more with cinnamon. A little dose, like 1/2 a teaspoon can powerful antioxidant benefits, however in large doses taken consistently every day, it can be a little more harmful due to a compound called coumarin. Excess has been contributed to lower blood sugar.

Before taking cinnamon in high doses or taking a supplement, it’s best to speak with your doctor.

Raw Honey

Raw honey if different from regular honey. It has not undergone pasteurization, meaning the heat has not killed the yeast and you’ll probably notice some little crystals forming. There are so many health benefits associated with raw honey like being high in antioxidants and antibacterial and antifungal properties. The high number of phytonutrients help boost the immune system!

  1. Thank you for this awesome cold remedy article, I really leaned a lot. The only thing I know about ginger is that, it is good to take if you need extra strength, so I always take a lot of ginger drinks when in need of extra strength, but I did not know that ginger also contains special agents capable of fighting cancer, that awesome! Another awesome lesson I learned from this article is the fact that raw honey has health properties, that amazing! thanks again for this interesting and informative article!

  2. Woah! I have never heard of such a four-word combination. I’m hooked and I want to learn more about the subject. How awesome? I’m floored but in the best way. I am all for considering unconventional, holistic healing remedies. Statistically speaking, it’s way more effective than the sham of traditional medicine.

    However, your disclaimer is quite sobering.

    Thank you for this amazing, brilliant article. I love how you explained the benefits of each ingredient as well as the detriments that arise from not using them in the appropriate manner. I received excellent value from your content. 

    I’d love to learn more as well as what happens to your enamel when you eat too many lemons.

    Meanwhile, try not to jinx yourself after two years of being cold-free. Who knows, maybe this could be like Futurama in which the common cold doesn’t exist unless if you are from 2000.

    Again, thanks!

    Hello Jordan,

    Thank you for this important information regarding
    cold remedy.

    We do have one thing in common and that is I do
    like sour things also and I would eat lemon just like
    a piece of orange.

    For many, many years now and praise the Lord for this,
    I have not had colds or flu or any chest ailments
    and I am extremely grateful for that.

    Since we were little children we drank ginger
    often as my Mom would always make that as
    part of our meal consumption.

    She would even mix it with plantain bananas
    and so to this day, we all do that still.

    My Mom and Dad were strict proponents
    of healthy eating habits.

    Your recipe is excellent and if ever more and
    more people should be taking in this mixture
    unless otherwise directed by their physician.

    Thank you ever so much for sharing your
    recipe with us. It is easy and simple to make
    and available anywhere in this world.

    Be well and take great care of yourself.

    God bless you.

  5. Thank you very much for this great recipe! I had heard about the many health benefits of these ingredients, but I didn’t know how to integrate them into a single recipe. The truth is that it could come in handy these winter days when I feel like a cup of tea! And if it’s so good for the body, I’ll be even more happy to drink it! Thanks for sharing this!
