Lemon and Ginger Infusion

lemongingerThere’s no better way to start the day than with a home-made lemon and ginger infusion.

Lemons are packed with antioxidant vitamin C, which is involved in the production of collagen, so it’s vital for good skin health. Lemons also have an alkaline effect on the body once they have been digested.

If you’re feeling a bit queasy after too much festive indulgence, ginger might help. Not only does it reduce feelings of nausea but it may help improve digestion and alleviate bloating and wind.

Like vitamin C, ginger is also high in free-radical combating antioxidants.

Steep a thick slice of lemon in hot water and add a little freshly grated ginger for 5 minutes and then sip. Alternatively, pop in the juicer with some carrots, parsnip and broccoli for an interesting breakfast beverage!
