drugs that they do not know the origin of, while others say they would choose to go to the hospital to get treated. To be honest, it all doesn't matter. It is okay to rely on traditional measures, as afterall, this was how things were done before the introduction of chemicals, and technology.

Please note that the availability of the ingredients used in making these drinks is equally important. There are also different methods of making herbal medicines, and so it is important for one to be fully aware of the whole process. A very well known herbal medicine that is mostly used by

The ginger mixture can be used to cure some major and minor illnesses in the body like; malaria, typhoid, diarrhea, fever, e.t.c. It is very effective and easy to prepare. The ingredients are very common, and can be found in most kitchens.

These ingredients are;

⦁ Ginger

⦁ Garlic

These, as we noted above, are basic ingredients, which we are all familiar with. They help the body in a lot of ways, which we would be discussing in this article.

Let's begin with GINGER;

Ginger being the key ingredient, is a flowering plant whose rhizome, ginger root or ginger, is widely used as a spice and a folk medicine. Ginger originated from southern China, but is being used all around the world. It's popularity is mainly because of its health benefits. This ingredient works magic in the body. It caters for the body in lots of ways. One being that it aids digestion. Ginger helps speed up the digestion process and makes emptying your stomach easier, and faster. There are many more benefits of this herb like;

Aiding weight loss

⦁ Relieving nausea and stomach upset

⦁ Alleviating premenstrual syndrome (PMS) symptoms

⦁ And it may help fight cancer, e.t.c.

Ginger is a very important and efficient herb, which also plays an important role, in the Ginger herbal Mixture.

Another ingredient is GARLIC;

While ginger is the main ingredient, garlic is also important. And although not much quantity is needed, it is an essential ingredient. Garlic is a plant in the onion family that’s grown for its distinctive taste and health benefits. It contains sulfur compounds, which are believed to be responsible for some of those health benefits. Garlic, which is sometimes enjoyed raw by some people, improves immunity, stabilizes blood sugar levels, and supports heart and brain health. This herb is also used mostly in China, like ginger.

Next ingredient is CLOVES;

Cloves are another ingredient needed to make the Ginger Mixture. This herb, like the rest of the ingredients, is important, and must be present in this drink. Cloves are the aromatic flower buds of a tree in the family Myrtaceae, Syzygium aromaticum. They originated from Indonesia, and are natives of the Maluku Islands. They are commonly used as a spice, flavoring or fragrance in consumer products, such as toothpaste, soaps, or cosmetics. Cloves are full of antioxidants. These compounds help your body to fight free radicals, which damage your cells and can lead to disease. By removing free radicals from your system, the antioxidants found in cloves can help reduce your risk of developing heart disease, diabetes, and certain cancers.


Bitter Kola is the fourth ingredient needed in preparing the Ginger Mixture. Bitter kola, also known as bitter cola or Garcinia Kola, is a plant found in Central and Western Africa that has long been valued for its medicinal properties. Although traditional African medicine uses all parts of the Bitter Kola plant, the seeds are mostly commonly eaten. Bitter kola seeds have a sharp, bitter flavor that eases into a slight sweetness as you chew, and Bitter kola has been used over the years to fight infections from the common cold to hepatitis. A 2018 study showed that bitter kola can help combat coughs, bacterial infections, and viral infections. Eating bitter kola when an infection starts may help fight the infection and make you feel better more quickly. They’re typically eaten raw.

And lastly TURMERIC;

This is the last ingredient that finalizes the Ginger Mixture. Turmeric is a traditional Indian spice with a powerful compound called curcumin. In India, it was traditionally used for disorders of the skin, upper respiratory tract, joints, and digestive system. Today, turmeric is promoted as a dietary supplement for a variety of conditions, including arthritis, digestive disorders, respiratory infections, allergies, liver disease, depression, and many others.
