The combination of fragrant ginger, pomegranate and lemon can’t be a bad idea. Incredibly healthy ingredients + sparkling mineral water = a very refreshing ginger, lemon and pomegranate detox drink.
Ginger has been traditionally used in Ayurvedic medicine and has a role in folk medicine, mostly for treating nausea and as a remedy for colds. Pomegranate has also been a traditional Ayurvedic remedy against dysentery, diarrhea and intestinal parasites. I assume you don’t have internal parasites, but hey, you never know..
Pomegranate is an excellent source of vitamin C, K and dietary fiber. Here you can find the instructions for how to easily deseed one.
The drink is best for hot summers with a lot of ice, but it will definitely do you good in winter, too, especially if you have a cold. You can make it ahead and store it in the fridge for a few days.
