This is the seaon when cold and flu are at their worst. Everyone seems to be falling sick and there’s something in the air! Now combine this with the ongoing pandemic which has symptoms very similar to the flu! Even if you catch a simple cold, you are likely to have sleepless nights thinking that it may be COVID. This is why the best thing is to avoid cold and flu as far as possible.
We are already taking care of hygiene with hand washing, sanitising and masking. Now just tweak your diet a little to improve immunity against common cold and flu. Include the following foods in your daily diet to build your immunity against these sicknesses.
Hot soup, ginger, garlic, turmeric, honey and chilli peppers should be consumed every day. Our Indian diet gives us shots of turmeric every day as we cook our food with this spice. Just make sure you add generous amounts of ginger and garlic to your food too. Every time you brew a cup of tea, add some grated ginger to the boiling water. Make hot soup your appetizer at dinner every night. If you feel a cold coming, make the magic potion of ginger juice and honey for yourself. A spoonful every few hours will work like magic!
