A warm cup of tea always feels good when you have a cold. How can you make that tea even better for you?
— Tea combined with Ginger, lemon, and honey can help to relieve the symptoms of cold and flu. All these ingredients have their own benefits, but
combined they have a revitalizing and calming effect and boost your immune system.
— Cayenne pepper is a great aid, too. Spice up your cold recovery regimen by adding 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper to 1/2 cup of Black Tea. Add milk, if desired.
— Licorice Root is an essential herb that helps fend off colds. It contains a compound called glycyrrhizin, which has potent antiviral effects.
— Another botanical defense against colds is Elderberry, a powerful immune booster. Extract of elderberries has been tested many times and was found to shorten the duration of flu virus symptoms by as many as four days.
— Green Tea has stronger anti-inflammatory effects than black tea.
— Very strong Unflavored Black Tea sweetened with two teaspoons of sugar relieves headaches.
We hope you feel better!
