Anti-inflammatory Digestive Chai

Although the monsoon is a welcoming relief from the scorching summer, the dullness, associated with this season could make one lethargic and prone to illness. The ginger root is a natural remedy for an upset stomach, itchy sore throat and provides a soothing relief to cold and cough. This hot root also displays anti-inflammatory properties, particularly beneficial for those suffering from rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, and various other inflammatory conditions that are aggravated at this time of the year.
