Almost every vegetable or herb that we have is packed with some or the other health benefits. But what is that one herb that you always look forward to when you are suffering from cough or cold? Yes, you got that right. It is nothing but ginger. India is the land of nani-dadi ke nuskhe and ginger or adrak has been a key ingredient in these nuskhe or we can say home remedies. Whenever I used to have cold or sore throat, my mother used to give a homemade syrup to me which was made up of ginger juice, honey, and tulsi leaves. That syrup used to cure my sore throat in no time. Some say that ginger works like magic, and I can’t disagree.
