5 Foods for Colds and Flus - Naturally Boost Your Immune System!
Flu and viruses are rampant this year. We want to let you know what you can do to protect yourself or recover faster by boosting your immmune system naturally.
Flu viruses are contagious a day or two before any symptoms show up and a week after someone is sick, which makes it hard to know when youíve been exposed. So eating these immune-boosting foods regularly during flu season makes good sense. They are also ingredients of Tonic Supreme, a powerful concentrated liquid form of effective immune-boosting foods, an antiviral remedy to kill viruses and strengthen your immune response:
Garlic contains the immune-stimulating compound allicin which promotes the activity of white blood cells to destroy cold and flu viruses. Garlic also stimulates other immune cells which fight viral, fungal and bacterial infections. Chief of Microbiology at Brigham Young University showed that garlic kills with near 100 percent effectiveness human rhinovirus which causes colds, common flu and respiratory virus, even herpes. Eat it raw for medicinal effect. Allicin is released when you cut, chop, chew or crush the raw cloves. Sprinkle freshly chopped garlic over foods, into soup, or swallow bits with a drink like a pill.
Onions contain quercetin, a nutrient that breaks up mucus in your head and chest while boosting your immune system. Onions also contain allicin which slows down and kills a variety of viruses and bacteria. The pungency of onions increases your blood circulation and makes you sweat.†This effect is helpful during cold weather to prevent infections and to sweat out a cold or flu. Consuming raw onion within a few hours of the first symptoms of a cold or flu will produce a strong immune effect.
Ginger reduces fevers, soothes sore throats, and encourages coughing to remove mucus from the chest. The chemicals shagaols and gingerols in ginger give it that spicy kick that stimulates blood circulation and opens your sinuses. Improved circulation means that more oxygen is getting to your tissues to help remove toxins and viruses. Research from the Toyama Medical and Pharmaceutical University in Japan indicated ginger has the ability to help prevent and treat flu infections.
Horseradish strengthens your immune system and increases blood flow to parts of your body irritated by cold and flu infections to remove wastes. This pungent food encourages you to flush out infected fluids through sweat and increased urination. Horseradish is known to stimulate your lungs to cough out mucus from colds and flus while heating up your body. This powerful plant is also antibacterial which prevents other problems like sinus infections from taking hold while youíre sick.
All of the Cayenne family hot peppers (cayenne, habenero, bird peppers, Scotch bonnet, etc.) contain capsicum, a rich source of vitamin C and bioflavinoids that aids your immune system in fighting colds and flus. These help your body produce white blood cells, especially the white blood cells of your lymphatic system that cleanse your cells and tissues of toxins. Cayenne pepper is also full of beta carotene and antioxidants that support your immune system, and helps build healthy mucus membrane tissue that defends against viruses and bacteria. Spicy cayenne peppers raise your bodyís temperature to make you sweat, increasing the activity of your immune system.
