Anti-Viral Island Tea

Way Of Life Health Shop

I came across this recipe today and thought it was worth sharing. Each ingredient offers unique immunity supporting benefits. A variety of studies indicate that curcumin, a substance found in turmeric root, improves the health and adaptability of immune cells. Ginger strengthens digestive health (the health of the gut is closely linked to the immune system).
Honey can function as an effective all-natural cough suppressant, and citrus fruits like lemons, limes, and oranges, can improve immune function.
Large chunk fresh ginger, peeled and chopped (7- 8 cms)
Large chunk fresh turmeric, peeled and chopped (7- 8 cms)
About 6 cups of water
2 teaspoons raw honey
Juice of 2 lemons
Step 1: Bring water, ginger and turmeric to boil over medium-high heat in a large saucepan, then reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes.
Step 2: Stir in honey and lemon juice. Strain tea and drink. Can be serve with additional honey and lemon wedges if desired.

Our sweet pea seeds send out, April issue and Get Growing

Mei Leng Wong Reporter from NZ Gardener & Get Growing

Dear neighbours and NZ Gardener family,

Our April issue should be with our subscribers now and available in supermarkets and service stations (having been distributed prior to the lockdown restrictions). Whether or not it's on the stands yet is a bit patchy ... but then the incredibly brave and hard-working supermarket staff have quite a bit on their plate right now so I understand if there is a delay! Please, please, please everyone ... don't go out to buy it! Normally of course we love you buying NZ Gardener but right now it's far more important that you stay home and stay safe. (You can buy a copy with your online shopping though! That's safe and I think we are all in the market for something uplifting to read right now).

In this issue we offered to send out sweet pea seeds to any reader who sent us a SSAE. Just to reassure you, we will still send out sweet pea seeds to any reader who is keen to participate. We are just not quite sure when! Ignore the dates in the magazine of when you needed to send the envelope in by - that has been indefinitely extended. But we cannot wait to send you the seed and for those flowers to bloom as by then we will be well through this or even have it behind us. And keep letting us know what you are sowing and growing, send in pictures of your harvest, your flowers or what you are sharing.

We always love hearing from NZ Gardener readers but now when we are all staying apart that connection means more than you can imagine. Stay home, stay safe and stay in touch everyone. For the most updated gardening advice, subscribe to our digital e-zine Get Growing, which will be delivered to your inbox completely free.
