A home remedy that is getting a lot of attention is being called a magic syrup. It is supposed to help eliminate fat and water from your body, particularly when combined with cardiovascular exercise. People are drinking it to accelerate brain function and improve memory, hearing and vision.
The “magic” ingredient is horseradish, a powerful plant that is known to assist with weight loss, lower blood pressure, relieve respiratory problems, support strong bones, contribute to immune health, stimulate healthy digestion, support heart health and lower the likelihood of neural tube defects in infants. Horseradish can also prevent cancer because it contains very high levels of glucosinolates. It is rich in vitamin C, potassium, vitamin B1, B6, iron and vitamin B2.
Horseradish was first known in Southern Europe and Western Asia, where it has been used for thousands of years as medicine as well as in cooking. This herb is related to wasabi mustard, cabbage and broccoli. When the thick, white root is sliced the plant cells release enzymes that break down the sinigrin in the root. This releases mustard oil, the pungent chemical that affects the sinuses and eyes of anyone exposed to it. Horseradish is popular as a condiment that offers a spicy burst of flavor in dishes.
Here is the recipe for this magic syrup:
125 grams of horseradish
3 tablespoons honey
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 piece of ginger (2 cm)
Mix horseradish and ginger in a blender.
Squeeze lemon juice and add it to the blender.
Stir for 2-3 minutes.
Add 3 tablespoons of honey and 2 teaspoons cinnamon, and mix again until a syrup is produced.
Store the syrup in a jar.
Ingest 1 tablespoon 2 times a day before meals or before a cardio workout. The syrup will last for 3 weeks. When the 3 weeks has passed, take a break for a few days.
Avid fans of this syrup say it speeds up the metabolism, reduces fatigue and stimulates the production of good bacteria in the stomach.
