4. Hot Chicken Soup
The flu can often make eating difficult due to the sore throat it can inflict on us. Sipping some hot chicken soup is a great way to get some relief.
Hot chicken soup will help decongest you as it is a powerful mucus stimulant. To give it a bit of a boost, you can load it up with pepper, hot curry powder, garlic, or whatever other pungent spices you prefer to help reduce the mucus build up in your lungs and throat.
Studies have even been completed which suggest that chicken soup stimulates the cilia, tiny hair like projections lining the nasal passage which transport foreign material out of the body (including bacteria and viruses).
It’s also been reported that by drinking chicken soup you are improving the disease fighting capabilities of the white blood cells.
5. Lemon And Honey Hot Tea
Drinking plenty of liquids during bouts of the flu is essential, and they work even better if the drinks are hot.
Black tea contains interferon which is an excellent deterrent for viruses. Throw in a good-sized teaspoon of anti-oxidant rich honey, and a dash of lemon juice for a quick and tasty injection of immunity boosting vitamin C.
The ability of garlic to ward of vampires has, thankfully, never been proven but it does have plenty of evidence to support its cold and flu fighting ability. It gets its immune boosting properties from allicin, and is also believed to provide some relief from cold and flu symptoms.
Take one or two crushed cloves and steep them in hot water. Drink it as you would a tea.
White button mushrooms in particular have studies behind them that show they are little powerhouses for boosting your immunity levels.
Button mushrooms speed up the production of antiviral proteins which go to work destroying and deactivating the foreign bodies that make you ill.
Mushrooms are great cooked but eating them raw is best (heat destroys nutrients) – just throw a few into your salad.
