Garlic, Garlics , 2 Garlics a day take the flu away!

Go down  Message [Page 1 of 1]


Hey Jed and Insight ( who come down with some winter bugs)
with vitamin C and D ( see the link below ) add 2 fresh Garlics in your flu fighting food.

Garlic kills viruses responsible for colds and the flu, according to tests by a microbiologist at Brigham Young University. Eat garlic when you feel a sore throat coming on and you may not even get sick. (Eat garlic when you're stuffed up, too: It acts as a decongestant.) Other studies suggest garlic revs up immune functioning by stimulating infection-fighting T-cells.

Four foods to help your body fight the flu

Give your immune system a quick boost with some garlic.
The swine flu virus (H1N1) currently accounts for about 98% of circulating flu viruses in the United States, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Having a strong, healthy immune system is the body's only true defense. Build up your immunity with these nutritionist-recommended foods.

Colorful fruits and veggies. Antioxidants like beta-carotene and vitamin C are key to immune system health. Get your daily dose of beta-carotene with a half-cup serving of brightly colored fruits and vegetables, especially orange ones like sweet potatoes and carrots.

Yogurt. Look for varieties containing probiotics, "good" bacteria that may strengthen the digestive system. Two 6-ounce servings per day may ease diarrhea, prevent yeast and urinary tract infections and improve overall health.

Lemons. The proper pH balance is crucial for disease-fighting. Four tablespoons of lemon juice can help maintain an internal climate in which healthy bacteria, instead of viruses and harmful bacteria, thrive.

Garlic. Two cloves a day of the smelly herb stimulate infection-fighting white blood cells and sharpen their virus-killing instincts.
