Fight the Flu

Since i am currently suffering with a bad case of the Flu i though it would be cool to share some natural remedies instead of hitting the local pharmacy. I have never been one to resort to over the counter drugs to heel my illnesses but instead i turn to nutrition and herbal solutions .
With the cold and wet weather upon us no doubt we are all due a dose of the flu, so keep these in mind.Garlic, Vitamin C and Cinnamon !!


I absolutely love this product. My favoutite is the drops version, it's also available in Tablets. Its a great and natural way to boost your immune system, i think its also a great idea to take it if you are feeling run down. I usually take 2-3 drops in a glass of water maybe four times a day. Available in all health food stores in Ireland    

18.49 euro in The health food Store


Lucky for me i am a huge garlic fan regardless of sickness. Garlic has been proven to be the top natural remedy for colds and flu's. Garlic has been proven to have the highest amount of antibacterial, antifungal,antiparasitic and antiviral properties compared top any other food or remedy.  For maximum benefits mince two garlic cloves and mix with water another option is chewing raw garlic cloves. Let's be honest nobody is going to do that, so what i like to do is eat food where i can add a couple of cloves of garlic like homemade soup, Brusselsprouts with garlic or possibly an omelette loaded with garlic .

                                                                              Garlic is also amazing for boosting               your metabolism so try include it                 in your every day diet  

Vitamin C

There are a couple of options when it 
comes to vitamin C. I would personally 
recommend the powder version i think 
its the strongest . You can also go with 
the tablet version which are available in 
several brands or the soluble version 
which you can pick up from your chemist.
Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant is 
needed for many body functions, repairs 
and healing.
