Anti-inflammatory Lemon Cinnamon and Ginger Tea

How Is Anti-Inflammatory Lemon Cinnamon & Ginger Tea Good For You?

Lemon and ginger together is a powerhouse of anti-inflammatory properties.  Together, they boost the immune system, help reduce pain and inflammation and could be an effective nutritional strategy to improve health.

Studies show that citrus fruits are a rich source of vitamin C and flavonoids which have a potential effect on the inflammatory response.  These can regulate metabolism, help you lose weight and treat a number of metabolic diseases. 

Lemon water is hydrating and the vitamin C may assist in reducing wrinkles and improve skin quality.  Just by drinking water alone you lubricate the bones and joints which help reduce friction and joint pain.  

Studies also show that the citrus in lemons can also help prevent kidney stones and may reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease and cancer. 

What You’ll Need

Water

Water is an essential nutrient and accounts for 60% of a person’s body weight. Water dissolves vitamins and minerals in the body which helps remove waste products.  It also lubricates and cushions the joints and helps prevent joint friction.

Fresh Lemon

Lemons are high in vitamin C which assists with immune system health and also reduces the risk of heart disease and stroke. Lemons may also help to control weight, protect against anemia, cancer and prevent kidney stones.

Ginger

Ginger is a natural antibacterial that helps ward off germs and fights disease.  It keeps your mouth healthy, lowers cholesterol and lowers blood sugar levels. Ginger also aids digestion, nausea, relieves muscle pain and arthritis.

Cinnamon

Is high in medicinal properties, it is loaded with antioxidants and is also an anti-inflammatory that helps fight bacterial, fungal infections and lowers blood sugar levels. Cinnamon may also protect against cancer, have beneficial effects on neurodegenerative diseases and may help fight HIV virus.

Paprika

Rich in vitamins and minerals and also full of antioxidants.  Paprika may assist in healthy vision, improve cholesterol and blood sugar levels.

How To Make Anti-Inflammatory Lemon Cinnamon & Ginger Tea

Compared to the apple cider and turmeric detox tea recipe I’ve posted before, this one is super quick and you’ll be drinking your refreshing cup of tea in no time at all. 

Boil the kettle, make sure that you’ve cleaned the kettle recently.. I was shocked with the amount of calc there was in the bottom of ours when the last one broke.  Alternatively heat the water in a pan on the stove. 

Whilst you are waiting for the water to boil, squeeze the juice from the lemon using a juicer.  If you don’t have a juicer then use a fork to get the juice out.  Add the juice to the tea cup. 

Peel a small bit of ginger (or a large bit if you like ginger) and then slice it up and put it into the cup with the lemon juice. 

Once the water has boiled, add it to the cup with the ginger and the lemon and then add a pinch of paprika and a pinch of cinnamon.  You only need a tiny pinch, the water in the cup still needs to look like water and not brown or overloaded with spices.  Give it a stir and away you go!   

You could also add mint, honey, turmeric… whatever takes your fancy! 

I generally use spices to make this anti-inflammatory lemon cinnamon and ginger tea as they are handy and it’s quick.  However,  if you have cinnamon sticks in the cupboard, boil your water in a saucepan on a low heat with the cinnamon stick and ginger.  This will enhance the flavour and have more nutritional value.

How To Store & Make Ahead

To be honest I really would not pre-prep this recipe as it takes a whole two minutes to make.  The only thing I would do is take the skin off the ginger and chop it up into reasonably sized pieces.  Add the ginger to a small container and add water with a drop off white wine vinegar and then cover with a lid.  Place in the fridge and when you’re ready to make a cup of tea just grab a ginger slice and plonk it in the cup…et voilà
