As promised, here is part 2 of this post, discussing a further 5 natural products that help to prevent colds/flu, or help to alleviate the symptoms quicker if you catch one!
Turmeric is anti-viral, and even a small amount is enough to inhibit the activity of the flu virus, as well as stopping the virus from replicating and growing. It’s also anti-inflammatory so it helps to relieve the symptoms of colds/flu, it’s full of antioxidants and is shown to boost the immune system.
Black pepper is antibacterial, so it helps to fight infections. When combined, these 2 spices really help to combat or even prevent colds/flu!
They are also antibacterial, antibiotic, and contain loads of Vitamin C which is a well-known immune booster, as well as being packed full of plenty of other nutrients!
It’s one of the best things you can eat to give you that health boost and help you recover quickly from a cold!
It’s best eaten raw or lightly boiled/steamed.
Decongestants (natural ones!)
Bionorica Sinupret is the name of the natural decongestants that I use, and I think they’re amazing!
But unlike normal decongestants, they not only relieve the symptoms but also fight against the pathogens to help you recover quicker. I highly recommend them!
