Garlic and honey
Honey is loaded with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and enzymes. It also acts as an antioxidant to fight off free radicals.
Garlic contains compounds that boost the white blood cells’ ability to fight against some viruses. It is important to crush garlic instead of chop it because during the crushing, the main component, alliin, turns into its active form.
- 1 cup of raw honey
- 8-10 cloves of garlic
Place the garlic in the glass jar and fill the jar with honey. Let it rest at room temperature for 3-5 days and place it into the fridge afterward. It’s ready to use after that time. Take a teaspoon of honey with a piece of garlic once a day.
Turmeric and ginger tea
Curcuminoids, active components in turmeric, have many health benefits, anti-viral properties — and its immune-boosting properties are only part of it.
Ginger has very strong anti-bacterial and anti-viral characteristics which help support the immune system.
- 3 cups of hot water
- 1 cm turmeric root, peeled and grated or 2 tsp of powdered turmeric
- 1 cm of a piece of ginger, peeled and grated
Boil water and add turmeric and ginger. Let it rest for 5-10 minutes. Add honey or lemon to taste.
