Drinking water is a healthy habit that should be present throughout the day for a lifetime; every cell, tissue, and organ in the body needs water to function properly.

Ingredients

One liter of water

A ginger

One lemon

Preparation

Put a liter of water on the heat and when it starts to boil add a few cubes of ginger. Turn off the heat after a minute and cover the pot. Wait 15 minutes and it's ready.

Squeeze a lemon and stir before consuming.

Lemon is a powerful bactericide containing vitamin C and flavonoids that help strengthen the immune system; this increases your body's defenses.

Ginger is rich in antioxidants, slows down the aging process, strengthens the immune system, is digestive, fights stress and anxiety, and improves blood circulation.
