Magical Foods That Could Help Boost Your Immunity
Here are few herbs, spices and other foods that support the immune system:
1. Black Pepper:
Available whole, crushed or ground into powder, most Indian homes use black pepper for a reason. This healing pepper is carminative; it discourages intestinal gas and warms the body so it promotes sweating, which helps rid the body of toxins. A study showed that the growth of several bacteria types was inhibited when black pepper was introduced. It was concluded that black pepper may contain not only anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antibacterial and fever-reducing actions but immune system enhancing properties as well.
2. Ginger Garlic Shots
Ginger and garlic are like an elixir for our bodies. Their super anti-inflammatory properties bring relief to those horrid body aches. They help soothe away nausea too.
Juice a thumb-sized piece of ginger, one lemon, 2-4 cloves of garlic and one carrot. Try these shots to strengthen the immune system, because this juice has antiseptic, anti-fungal and nutritive properties.
Our very own basil provides immense relief from respiratory disorders, fever, asthma and lung disorders. It is no doubt then, that tulsi has been worshiped for its endless miraculous and medicinal value. A few leaves dropped in drinking water can help purify it and kill certain germs within it. Tulsi is so powerful that even smelling it has healing properties, thus it is used in aromatherapy.
