It’s flu season again. Instead of running for the hills, try this ginger, lemon, and turmeric tea recipe! It is full of amazing nutrients that may help you feel better when you’re feeling icky. These ingredients also have quite a bit of cancer-preventive properties, and we certainly love that.
Evidence for cancer prevention
- There are rumors that ginger increases bile production, so it’s best that people who have a history with gallbladder problems avoid too much ginger. (This has not been studied in depth yet, so please consult your doctor for more information.)
- Too much ginger can cause heartburn the same way spicy foods can.
- Ginger has been shown to lower blood pressure, so too much of it may cause you to become lightheaded.
