Why it’s so good for you:

There’s a reason why so many of us wake up to a glass of warm lemon water! Lemon juice helps flush out toxins and aids digestion by encouraging the production of bile. It is also a great source of essential nutrients including citric acid, potassium, calcium, phosphorus and magnesium.

Ginger has been used for over 2,000 years to help support digestion and treat stomach upsets, diarrhea, and nausea. The addition of ginger to this drink helps to soothe the stomach, reduce inflammation and provide a gentle pick-me-up!

My ginger root piece didn't have near that amount of liquid. (Plus think I can't squeeze with as much strength as James.)nAny suggestions?

Hi Kathleen, if you're finding it hard to get the juice out of the grated ginger, you may also use a clean cloth and squeeze it or use a juicer as an alternative :-) Enjoy! ~ Iris

You can also use a garlic press as I do.
You press, you get the juice and then you can also get de ginger "meat"

Hi Carol! You can try to run the spoon under hot water before dipping it into the jar and the honey should slide right off.

Is the nutrition values the same if I use lime instead of lemon?

Hi Carol, despite differences in size, flavor and color, lemons and limes share the same nutritional values. Both are low in calories and are good sources of dietary fiber, and they help you meet your daily needs for vitamins C and B-9 ~ Ivory :)
