Did you know there’s an easy, natural and healthy way to ease congestion or a sore throat during this season of sickness?
You simply make a “tea” of one cup warm water, one tablespoon honey and some lemon to help chase away the chills, congestion and sore throat. You can add cinnamon, too, as cinnamon has anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antiviral, antibacterial and antifungal properties that effectively prevent colds.
Honey has been shown to contain antioxidants, and it offers antibacterial and antimicrobial properties that help fight against the virus, bacteria and fungus to treat the cold and its underlying symptoms.
In addition, it will help boost the immune system, which lessens the severity of the cold and helps to prevent future colds.
It will also help soothe a sore throat naturally, and it relieves irritation.
You can also take a tablespoon full of straight honey when you feel a cough coming on to help fight that ailment as well.
