Ever wondered why honey is sometimes used as a way to announce you’re home? Because everything about it is fantastic! From taste to health benefits, the golden nectar encapsulates the best of the best. Regarding colds and flu, because of its antimicrobial compounds, honey can keep bacteria at bay.
In fact, some studies suggest that this beloved yellowish fluid may stimulate the immune system when consumed regularly. So, honey is particularly good when you have a sore throat most likely caused by a bacterial infection.
To relieve the symptoms faster, mix a teaspoon of honey with a glass of warm milk or echinacea tea.
Important! Do not give honey to your kid or grandkid if he/she is under 12 months old.
Even though ginger is best known for its nausea-easing effects, it can also be your best friend when it comes to colds and flu. It has been demonstrated that ginger contains antimicrobial and antioxidant effects.
On top of that, it seems that this flavorful spice also possesses anti-cancer properties. So, when you’re sick add some fresh ginger to your favorite meal or use the Amazon teapot we’ve recommended.
Just make sure that what you’re buying contains real ginger, not ginger flavor.
