These quick and tasty home remedies are nothing to sneeze
Chew some vitamin-C tablets. Research shows that increasing
your C intake can reduce both the duration and the severity
of colds. Shoot for around 2,000 milligrams of supplemental C
Spike your tea. With cinnamon, that is. Cinnamon bark
contains a compound called cinnamaldehyde, which reduces
inflammation and fever. Just drop a cinnamon stick into
whatever hot drink you're sipping.
Respect your elderberries. The tart blackish-colored fruit is
filled with powerful germ killers that may cut the length of
your cold in half.
Eat marak. Studies have shown that chicken soup:
Relieves congestion in your nose, sinuses and chest; Replaces
fluids lost from a fever or runny nose; Reduces levels of
painful inflammation; Makes white blood cells more effective
at fighting bacteria.
