Lemon, honey and cayenne pepper may have been mentioned in some of my other immunity videos for top immunity boosters.
- High in Vitamin C and Fibre, lemons can help to Support Heart Health, Control Healthy Weight, Prevent Kidney Stones, Protect Against Anaemia by improving iron absorption, and Reduces Cancer Risk due its antioxidant terpenes and vitamin C. Lemon’s nutrients aid in Improving heart Health down to its good levels of Potassium; and contains Vitamin B6 to aid in proper functioning of nutrients, and helps chemical reactions in the immune system.
- Honey, especially Manuka honey, native to my homeland, is probably most renowned for its wound-healing properties as it is a pretty powerful antimicrobial, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory food. It is also a good source of prebiotics to Support gut health. It may even be a powerful fighter in combating and potentially inhibiting influenza viruses, and it soothes a sore throat, making it an effective complementary treatment for those pesky viruses…
Another thing you need to consider when looking for the ‘right’ manuka honey is its UMF – Unique Manuka Factor with a rating of anywhere from 10+ to 25+ – the higher the ‘+’ or rating, the purer the honey is.
- And finally, cayenne pepper Provides beneficial plant compounds and antioxidants that protect our cells and promote health, defends your heart by keeping blood vessels healthy and lowers blood pressure, improves digestion by increasing gastric juices and enzyme production in the stomach, maintains a healthy weight by revving up the metabolism, and Eases pain and clears congestion.
This drink is a powerhouse of nutrients that you can make anytime.
