Best Natural Cold Remedy This Winter
Honey Cold Remedy to Prevent the Winter Blues
This recipe is truly my go-to cold remedy all season long and I just love the flavours! I discovered the beautiful combination of honey and lemon and ginger years ago and have since added turmeric and, more recently, garlic. Whichever combination you decide to do is entirely up to you and your own tastes.
This is what I recommend:
These ingredients are loaded with vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients that are anti-bacterial, anti-viral and anti-inflammatory.
Raw garlic in particular is very powerful source against some bacteria and virusses. If you use it in your cooking, don’t chop it and leave it around or you will lose the best benefits within the first 10 minutes. So eat it raw or cook it quickly.
Ginger and turmeric are well known for their anti-inflammatory properties so include them whenever you can.
Honey has great anti-bacterial properties and, well, just tastes amazing. By using local honey, you may also gain the benefit of better protection against allergies in the spring.
