Ginger provides many health benefits. It can reduce pain and inflammation and helps in relieving back and muscle pain. It also helps people who suffer from degenerative or rheumatoid arthritis.
Just with a little dried ginger, lemon juice, and sugar, you can make your own ginger beer, a powerful beverage that treats various health problems.
Here is what you need to prepare ginger beer at home:
- 450 ml filtrated water
- 115 ml sparkling mineral water
- 225 gr. sugar
- 200 gr. peeled, finely chopped ginger
- Lime juice (a few drops)
- Slices of lemon (optional)
Bring the filtered water to boil. Add ginger into the water once it starts to boil. Reduce heat and let cook for 5 minutes. Then, set aside for 20 minutes. Strain to separate the liquid from the ginger. In a separate bowl, dissolve the sugar with 1 cup of boiled water. Combine 1/3 cup of the syrup with a half cup of the ginger liquid and ½ cup of mineral water. Add lime juice or honey. Garnish with slices of lemon.
Ginger beer improves digestion and can help you with any stomach ailments. It can also reduce cholesterol and return the blood sugar to normal levels. It is very useful for improving blood circulation and preventing cancer.
