IF YOU are looking for an easy way to boost your immune system and enjoy the many health benefits of ginger and turmeric, give this shot a try.

Courtesy of Granny Mouse Country House & Spa, the recipe has a few ingredients that make a powerful, raw nutrient-packed health shot in minutes.

Turmeric and ginger have been consumed for centuries and, over time, they have built quite the reputation for being super healthy.

The roots are typically dried and then ground into a spice that can be kept for months, if stored correctly. However, it is the fresh root that really shines.

Ginger and turmeric are beneficial roots that are used in cooking, as a tea or in others beverages. Both are rich in antioxidant properties and are available in capsule form, as dietary supplements.

Known for its anti-inflammatory properties, ginger is loaded with antioxidants and can even help settle your stomach and it is also great for cooking. It tastes delicious in vinaigrettes, stir-fries, soups and broths, sautéed vegetables or in a spice blend to coat a roast.

Considered a superfood for the brain, turmeric is packed with antioxidants and anti-inflammatories, just like ginger, but because of its “earthy” flavour, it is stronger than ginger and is not quite as versatile. It does taste great sautéed with vegetables, combined with other pungent spices, added to soups, or mixed with honey and added to chicken.

“Although each is great alone, they are even better together. Their union has been flaunted and it is no wonder that they prove to be a potent combination. Specifically in cold-pressed immunity shots that have gained extreme popularity since the Covid-19 outbreak. A mere cough will have you adding one of these vitamin-packed shots to your basket,” Granny Mouse Country House & Spa noted.
