That’s the ginger shot effect
Ginger is the cold-killers par excellence. The inconspicuous root contains, among other things, potassium, phosphorus and vitamin C, which are necessary to strengthen the immune system and make us more resistant to influenza viruses or colds. In addition, thanks to the gingerol contained, ginger naturally has a pain-relieving effect and is also expectorant and anti-inflammatory. An all-rounder for health! Why would you prefer a ginger shot than a ginger tea?
Here we come to the essential health benefit of ginger shots. What many do not know is that as soon as we heat ginger, for example for a tea, it loses important vitamins and minerals. For the shot, the root is processed in its raw form, so it is much healthier for us.
Less is more
Our three following recipes are for a small supply of ginger shots – so do not drink all at once! One shot a day is enough. If you have a sensitive stomach, it is best to eat a snack first to avoid heartburn. In general: Drink the sharp shot slowly and enjoyably.
