Are you always sick? Coughing, sneezing, runny nose? The cold returns like a bad habit, and once again you find yourself hiding from daylight. One word: frustrating. You feel worn out, and you’re tired of ingesting all the chemicals included inside every medicine bottle.
The answer? Fight your cold naturally. By giving your body what it needs naturally, it will be able to fight away colds on its own -- allowing you to feel better soon, while staying away from dangerous chemicals.
Here are 5 fantastic versatile foods to include in your diet in order to become a cold fighting machine!
#1 Super Food Powder
Superfood powders are antioxidant packed -- with high amounts of Vitamin C and Vitamin D. They can easily be added to smoothies, juices and cooking. In powder form, these superfood mixtures are easily absorbed by the body, boosting your immune system and improving your overall health.
#2 Lemon and Ginger Tea
Both are essential immune boosting ingredients that will strengthen and protect your body. Add a small piece of ginger, with a squeeze of fresh lemon, into your cup of tea for an immediate boost of immune strengthening nutrients. These ingredients alone can be mixed in nearly anything for an immune boost -- from salads, smoothies, to everyday meals.
#3 Matcha Tea
A great alternative to coffee. Matcha tea provides your body with a rich abundance of antioxidants that will support and strengthen your immune system. Thus, giving you energy and improving your health. You can also sprinkle matcha onto pancakes, add it to scrambled eggs, season over side dishes -- instead of salt and pepper, mix into soups and the list goes on. Enjoy!
Cinnamon is an antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal ingredient. Not only does it strengthen the immune system, but it also fights the pathogens that cause sickness. What is great about cinnamon is that it can be added to nearly any food -- easily allowing you to reap the benefits. Add it to your tea, sprinkle it over oatmeal, dust it on fresh fruit or mix it in with a smoothie. Be creative!
Kale is a super immune boosting food that is rich with Vitamin C, which is a powerful antioxidant that fights infections and helps regenerate other antioxidants in the body. It also contains folate -- another great immune booster. Include kale in your salad, chopped over your meal, or in a smoothie. Have fun with this nutritious green food!
Over to you!
Supporting and boosting your immune system does not mean including dangerous chemicals. You can prevent and fight sickness with natural foods that creatively can be included in many different delicious foods. Have fun with these natural foods and enjoy your new found health, energy and vitality!
