Lingonberry Ginger Probiotic Tonic

Lingonberry Ginger Probiotic Tonic

Lingonberry Ginger Probiotic Tonic - Tayler Silfverduk - The perfect refreshing beverage to sip on a hot summer day. A fermented probiotic beverage that will help you feel better and heal you gut!


Lingonberry Ginger Probiotic Tonic

This Lingonberry Ginger Probiotic Tonic is the perfect refreshing beverage for warm weather. It’s perfect for warm weather due to its delicious taste, effervescent mouth-feel and energizing properties. Made using my famous wild fermented ginger “soda”, this drink features all of the health benefits that ginger has to offer!

Ginger is good for:

♦ Relieving gas and bloating
♦ Aiding in elimination
♦ Improving blood circulation
♦ Relaxing muscles
♦ Fresh strawberries for Garnish
(Hoffmann, 2003, p. 597)

It’s been used for years to treat many problems such as:

♦ Colds
♦ Nausea
♦ Arthritis
♦ Migraines
♦ Hypertension
(Bode and Dong)

With all of the benefits associated with ginger, it’s no wonder it’s considered to be a superfood. However, ginger has another important property, it is also prebiotic. Because it’s prebiotic, ginger is perfect for fermentation and culturing probiotics (good bacteria)! Therefore, this drink is beneficial because it packs the punch of probiotic cultures and ginger.
