There are always lots of nasty bacteria and viruses around us but we have a very effective internal defense mechanism called the immune system. Special cells are spread throughout our bodies and when potentially harmful bacteria or viruses hit us, the cells send a warning signal to the other parts of our system to take care of it and prevent the sickness from spreading. So an immune system is practically a network and does an amazing job of protecting us. For that reason, we should be looking after it and taking better care of ourselves.
1. Garlic and honey
Honey is loaded with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and enzymes. It also acts as an antioxidant to fight off free radicals.
Garlic contains compounds that boost the white blood cells’ ability to fight against some viruses. It is important to crush garlic instead of chop it because during the crushing, the main component, alliin, turns into its active form.
- 1 cup of raw honey
- 8-10 cloves of garlic
Place the garlic in the glass jar and fill the jar with honey. Let it rest at room temperature for 3-5 days and place it into the fridge afterward. It’s ready to use after that time. Take a teaspoon of honey with a piece of garlic once a day.
