The Benefits of Lemon and Ginger

Find out why lemon and ginger have long been combined into warming and comforting hot drinks

Lemon and Ginger have long been incorporated into warm beverages and herbal teas. This combination was traditionally used to soothe the digestive system, settle the stomach and relieve mild nausea. It was also thought to be a support to the immune system, making it an important winter wellness drink. These days, we know a little more about each of the key ingredients and the benefits they can provide.

  • Lemon is a source of Vitamin C, which is an important vitamin for supporting the immune system and helping to protect cells from free radical damage. Lemon therefore makes a great addition to meals and hot drinks, particularly during the winter months.
  • Ginger root is well-known for its warming properties and for supporting healthy circulation, thought to be due to its mild spice. It is also used as a natural alternative to ease nausea, settle the stomach and soothe digestion.

No wonder so many people turn to the comforts of lemon and ginger for support after meals, during the colder months, or when they are feeling under the weather. The sweet and tangy lemon flavours when combined with the mildly spicy aroma of the ginger root make for a deliciously warming cuppa. Such a blend is also great for revitalising the mind and refreshing the senses, and being caffeine free it makes a great any time brew.

Healtheries has taken inspiration from this age-old favourite and united lemon and ginger with a twist of apple for the perfect balance of sweet and tangy. We love this tea not only for its refreshing flavour, but for the warmth and comfort we experience after each cup, especially in winter.
