Ginger root (the magic ingredient) contains gingerols and shaoals which are natural anti-inflammatories. Ginger is often recommended as a remedy for indigestion, but it’s also particularly effective at targeting rhinoviruses, the nasties which cause colds. Ginger has been used in Chinese medicine for over 2,000 years to fight colds, because of its warming, pain-relieving and anti-viral properties.
