Immune fighting foods…

30/09/2012

I have met a number of friends and family who are suffering with colds and aches and pains recently.

Here are some top foods to help fight the bugs and boost your immune system
Onions and Garlic contain allicin, allicin is thought to have the ability to slow and kill a variety of viruses and bacteria. However, it’s the raw variety that really has the immune punch.  Add some raw onion to your salads and use fresh garlic in your dressings.  A little side salad with these little immune fighting gems could really help.  Include some lemon juice (vitamin C) in the dressing and make a big chicken and vegetable soup and add some cayenne pepper and turmeric for extra anti-inflammatory and antibacterial benefits.

Immune Tea
Another fave of mine is Hibiscus and Rosehip Tea with a little Manuka honey.  Delicious drink with benefits!  Vitamin C from the tea and antibacteria affects from the honey.   Beautiful deep red tea tastes delicious.
