Did you know that the mixture of ginger and fennel strengthens the immune system and prevents rhinitis and allergy attacks?
Rhinitis is an inflammatory condition that affects the nasal mucosa and can be allergic or non-allergic.
In both cases, the symptoms are similar: sneezing, runny nose, nasal congestion, itchy nose, eyes, oral cavity and throat, swollen palms, headache and in some cases lack of a sense of smell.
Usually, symptoms occur every day and can last for about an hour. The most common causes of the disease is allergens such as dust, pollen, dust mites, animal dander, perfume odors, paint odors, mold, and unmaintained air conditioning systems.
When these allergens are inhaled, the body reacts to them and causes an allergy. If this is the case with you, you should learn about the benefits of ginger and fennel and how to use them properly to treat the problem naturally.
Ginger has anti-inflammatory, antiviral, antibacterial and expectorant effects. In this way, it contributes to the treatment of respiratory diseases, such as rhinitis.
According to a Thai study, ginger is effective in the treatment of rhinitis. The researchers found that ginger is as good as the drug loratadine in relieving nasal symptoms.
Those who consumed ginger noticed a reduction in nasal congestion, sneezing, runny nose, and facial itching. All this is due to the gingerol, which has an antibiotic effect.
It helps eliminate viruses and bacteria that affect the respiratory tract. It’s also a source of vitamin C, thus strengthening the immune system.
Fennel, in turn, is a source of vitamin C and zinc, which strengthens the immune system. It also contains eugenol and linalool, which have antiviral, anti-inflammatory and antibacterial effects.
Thus, it helps fight viruses and bacteria that affect the respiratory tract and relieves symptoms such as respiratory allergies, coughs and sore throats.
Therefore, it’s worth using it together with ginger.
For this powerful tea you need:
- 1 teaspoon of powdered or grated ginger;
- 1 teaspoon of fennel;
- 300ml of water.
Bring the water to a boil. Then turn off the heat and add the fennel and ginger.
Stir well, cover and let steep for 15 minutes. Strain and drink three times a day. In the morning, on an empty stomach, before lunch and before dinner.
It’s not only delicious, but also has properties that prevent rhinitis crises. So prepare this tea whenever the symptoms appear.
