The transition into Summer

Can often aggravate allergies and bring on unwelcome coughs and colds. To ward off the symptoms of such ailments, Ginger is a great addition to your diet.
If you can brave it, a shot of pure Ginger juice first thing in the morning not only fires-up your digestion but supports the immune system and also acts as an anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant in the body.
Try blending the Ginger with little water and then straining if you do not have a juicer. If this is too much, Ginger juice diluted
with warm water, lemon and honey is a soothing alternative.
