Woman Swears by 'Lemon Ginger Shots' to Ward Off Illness

Have you been feeling a little off lately? Like you’re right on the verge of getting sick? TikTok content creator @katchaomeow shares her daily immune boosting shot. And it might be just what you need to stay well.

This zesty shot may be the perfect way to start your day!

This doesn’t look too bad. She tells us that she drinks this daily and it keeps her healthy. If she’s feeling a little down, she drinks a bit more. This easy brew is made using a blender, and she adds 5-6 peeled and diced lemons, 1 finger length of turmeric, 5 knobs of ginger, 5-6 cloves of garlic, and a teaspoon of black peppercorns. Blend it up and then put it through a strainer and into a jar. Store in the fridge for up to a week. She uses the leftover lemon peels to boil with sliced ginger for making tea. That sounds nice, too! 

The audience liked this clever idea. Viewer @DoReMiFa commented, “Oh, that lemon ginger! Perfect if you are having tummy troubles, too.” And @katchaomeow replied, “Drank it during pregnancy to help with my raging morning sickness.” Good to know! Viewer @ApacheRedFox suggested, “How about adding the boiled lemon peel to the ginger shots? Instead of plain water. And @katchaomeow replied, “Several people said to add the boiled lemon peel water, so I’ll try that next time.” That sounds like a great idea. Viewer @Tony commented, “Fantastic. I’m definitely going to try this. Thank you.” 

We're happy to have this morning drink for the hectic weeks ahead. It can’t hurt to give our already taxed immune systems a little more support.
