Millie Mackintosh tries ginger shots and healthy smoothies to cure her cold

 | By  |  Add comment

Knocking back powerful concentrated ginger shots could reduce your cold and flu symptoms. Just don't expect it to taste nice.



If you're the definition of a sneazy snotty mess right about now, you might want to give Millie Mackintosh's cold cure a go.

A shot of concentrated ginger juice might sound gross, but this healthy root is packed with pain relieving, antiseptic and antioxidant properties.

A mouthful of ginger can actually prevent and treat the inflammation that causes a cold (a bit like a decongestant tablet). Winner.

But if the idea of drinking pure ginger makes you want to cry inside, try whipping up a steaming pot of ginger, honey and lemon tea instead.

Just thinly slice about one centimetre of fresh ginger, place it in a small tea pot and cover with boiling water for about five minutes. Once it's brewed add some lemon juice and honey to taste. Job done.

Cold, do one.
