Homemade ginger shot - support your immune system

Ginger shots are real immune boosters! And we can really use that in times like these. The trendy drink from the USA is said to protect against illness and give us an energy kick in the morning. You can now also find ginger shots in our supermarkets. Unfortunately, at three to five euros per serving, they cost a small fortune. You can now find out here how you can make ginger shots much cheaper and very easily at home.

The basic ingredient of the ginger shot is – who would have thought – ginger. The root contains many important vitamins and nutrients, including potassium, vitamin C and phosphorus. They are necessary to strengthen our immune system. The gingerol it contains also has a pain-relieving effect and has an expectorant and anti-inflammatory effect.

Why a ginger shot and not ginger tea?

A ginger shot has one significant advantage compared to a ginger tea: When ginger is heated, important vitamins and minerals are lost. But if you process the root in its raw form, like for the ginger shot, then all of these nutrients arrive in our body. This means you can make much better use of the great potential of this small tuber!

It is clear that oranges and lemons contain many important vitamins. Another ingredient is turmeric: The spice is particularly popular in Ayurvedic cuisine and is considered very healthy. The curcumin contained in turmeric is antioxidant, has an anti-inflammatory effect and protects our cells.

For this healthy ginger drink you only need a few ingredients. Once the ginger shots are prepared, you can store them in the fridge for up to six days and enjoy a little vitamin bomb every morning that gets our immune system going.

If this is your first time trying a ginger shot – don’t worry, you’ll get used to the hot and sour taste! After all, the trendy drink is not known for its excellent taste, but for its health-promoting effects... :)
