Well known for their affinity towards natural and home remedies, Amish people possess arguably the biggest knowledge of natural medicines such as herbs and plants.
Their knowledge comes from the Agrarian culture, and for years, Amish people have been able to treat simple problems like a cough, sore throat, cholesterol, and even high blood pressure with natural alternatives to medicaments.
The only time that Amish people seek medical attention is when their natural and home remedies do not work.
The Ingredients List
The two main ingredients for this powerful cholesterol drink are honey and garlic.
If you didn’t know, honey and garlic are two of the healthiest ingredients you can find in the kitchen.
The remedy works not only for cholesterol but for high blood pressure as well.
Honey and garlic are just two of the ingredients, and the others also provide several health benefits for your heart and overall health.
And since the ingredients are easy to find and accessible, I see no reason why you shouldn’t run to the grocery store, prepare the drink and try it.
Starting from the beginning, you’ve got honey, which is rich in nutrients such as vitamin B, potassium, sodium, and calcium, all of which prevent cholesterol from leaving the blood.
The veggie carries a number of medical and health benefits for your body.
One of the best things about garlic is that the veggie significantly reduces your blood pressure levels.
Lemon is the fruit that has the most vitamin C per pound.
Fresh lemon juice is not helpful only for those with high cholesterol level, but for those with hypertension (high blood pressure) as well.
Going further, thanks to its richness in vitamin C, lemon can be a better alternative than apple for that “one apple per day keeps the doctor away” premise.
Last on the list we have two more enhancers, apple cider vinegar, and ginger.
Ginger is a spice that is little hot and spicy, but very effective and healthy in the same time.
And Apple cider vinegar is another home remedy that helps in almost every situation.
For your cholesterol, ACV helps by normalizing your pH level.
How to Prepare and Consume
To prepare the mixture, you need:
- 15 grams of honey (one tablespoon and little more)
- 1 clove of garlic
- 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar
- 1 tablespoon of lemon juice
- 1 piece of fresh ginger
Put all the ingredients in a blender and mix. You can keep the mixture in the fridge for a couple of days.
The best way to consume the drink is before breakfast (on empty stomach) and dinner.
You can drink it three times per day, but no more than that for one week.
After one week, you can make a pause of about one month, and then drink it again for a week.
