devastating news... I have developed Tendonitis in my right wrist....And, guess what? I'm right handed! It's quite unfortunate and it's unbelievably painful and I'm under strict instructions to rest it. Luckily the lovely Molly has agreed to be my scribe for the evening and so the juice challenge continues! At this time of year it seems that everybody has a cold or 'flu' or is just feeling under the weather. Given that I am somewhat indisposed this evening I have decided to keep my juice really simple. In last nights post I highlighted the many benefits, vitamins and minerals in ginger. With this in mind I present to you the ginger shot! The ginger shot is a natural anti-inflammatory and has a real kick to it, hence you only need a 'shot'.
The Ginger Shot
2 inches of ginger root
Juice the apple followed by the ginger... that's it
Word of warning, a ginger shot is very intense and has a very strong flavour. To be honest this is not the type of juice that you will want to sip on (hence the title!), in fact you may want to have a glass of water at the ready. When your not feeling the best ginger certainly feels warm and comforting. This shot tastes hot and spicy and has a somewhat medicinal feel to it. Ginger is of course a natural antihistamine, anti septic, anti viral and anti inflammatory... I don't know many medicines that can say that on the box! When I feel a tingle or sniffle coming on I take one of these as soon possible to try and to catch it before it develops any further.
You really can't argue with all the good packed into one little shot. Have a look at all the vitamins, minerals and benefits just one shot contains:
A, B1, B2, B6, C, Folate, E
Copper, Potassium, Sodium, iron, Calcium, Zinc, Phosphorus, Magnesium
Folate, Calcium, Potassium, Iron, Phosphorus
Natural anti-histamine, anti-inflammatory, anti-septic, anti-viral. Can relieve nausea, stimulates circulation, aids respiratory system & helps break down congestion in the lungs and clear sinuses.
Good for cardiovascular health, regulates blood sugar, anti cancer, and can alleviate symptoms of asthma
