Ginger is great for helping to warm the body from the inside out, and from top to toes. It increases the general circulation by opening the blood vessels (vasodilation), which also helps to promote a sweat and increases the body’s ability to detoxify.
If you have a cough, Ginger is one of the best remedies for the lungs. Ginger Gold Cough Syrup provides a soothing, warming action within the lungs themselves by the increased circulation through them, easing chest congestion and helping to reduce phlegm. Ginger also helps a cough to become more productive by thinning the secretions, making them easier to expectorate. If mucous becomes too thick or stays in the lungs too long, it can become a potential breeding ground for bacteria. This can worsen a cold or flu, by causing a secondary infection to set in. Ginger is also a traditional remedy for sore throats, as its initial pungency is replaced by a gentle soothing and warming effect.
Stay warm and healthy this winter, with Ginger Gold Cough Syrup*!
