It has been used as a food since ancient times and its application is very broad. Ginger inter alia alleviates pain, helps treat arthritis, reduces inflammation, and is used for weight loss as it accelerates metabolism.

Prior to use, it is important to note several key items related to foods.
When buying honey, give preference to domestic producers because there are very significant quality deviations, which is very important. Always remove honey from a wooden, plastic or porcelain spoon, because in contact with metal, honey loses some of its healing properties. Also, honey in the hot liquid loses its properties and always needs to be put in lukewarm liquid.
If you do not have access to homemade lemon, always remove the bark beforehand or simply squeeze it out, as pesticides, usually found in the basket, would not get into your preparation.
