Blueberries are powerful anti-oxidants, high in vitamin c and potassium, and phytoflavinoids making them a wonderful ingredient to help with inflammation, and they also lower the risk of heart disease! Chamomile has powerful anti-inflammatory and antispasmodic properties. Its top health benefits include its ability to protect the skin, lower stress levels, regulate sleep, and soothe menstrual cramps. It also boosts the immune system, treats gastrointestinal issues, and reduces belly bloating, among others. Ginger helps decrease symptoms of nausea, helps reduce inflammation, joint pain, and may also possess cholesterol lowering properties. 

BLUEBERRY CHAMOMILE RECIPE

MAKES: about 4 cups

INGREDIENTS:

1/4 cup wild blueberries – slightly squeeze them to infuse more flavour

1 tbsp dried chamomile flowers

1 tbsp fresh grated ginger or 5 small pieces of candied ginger

Optional: 1 tsp maple syrup – this helps to feed the ferment, and also adds a bit of extra flavour and sweetness.

1 tsp fresh lemon juice-if you like a bit of tang and an extra dose of Vitamin C
