This beneficial drink contains three main ingredients, onion, ginger, and turmeric, which are all rich in healthy ingredients.
Onions are rich in powerful antioxidants and cancer-fighting properties. They effectively inhibit the growth of cancer cells.
On the other hand, ginger has numerous other healthy properties, including the removal of excess mucus, accumulates in the lungs, due to smoking.
