Enjoy the Winter Chills With a Cuppa Kadha
Bring out the cashmere sweaters and all things cosy – it’s time to celebrate the season of chills! We know you’ve wrapped yourself in blankets and are indulging in a generous serving of gajar ka halwa. Then again, how can one say no to classic winter beverages like hot chocolate, a steaming cup of coffee/tea, and a soothing glass of haldi doodh. Ever wondered what it would be like to have something that will energise you throughout the day and is healthy too?
This time, enjoy winter with kadha. Ayurveda has plenty of remedies that aim at holistic healing and nourishment from the inside out and kadha is one of the most popular of them all. It is a perfect blend of herbs and spices boiled in water to fight cold and cough, shoo away the blues, and provide immunity during winters.
The benefits of kadha in winter include relief from sniffling, sore throat, cough, and headaches. There are numerous ways to create this calming concoction. The most commonly used method includes boiling ingredients like Holy Basil, Turmeric, Liquorice, Ginger, Black Pepper, and Cinnamon in hot water. Once the nutrients are extracted from the herbs, the remnants are then disposed of. It is consumed for quick relief from the early signs of sickness like a runny nose, itchy throat, body aches, and weakness. These ingredients also help us adapt to and recover from physical and mental stress.
Kadha is one of the winter home remedies that old folks and the young swear by alike. The best part is that this blend is that it has no side effects and you can prepare it as per your convenience.
