  • 3 Potent Health Boosters You Can Find Right on Your Spice Rack

    Icky colds and flus are set to invade now that winter’s here. But you can beat back their assault with these three natural immune boosters that are as close as your kitchen:

    1. Turmeric

      The main spice in curry, turmeric is a potent antiviral and antibacterial agent. Considered one of the world’s healthiest foods, turmeric contains curcumin, the medicinal compound responsible for boosting your immune system. In fact, research has shown that curcumin can reduce viral replication by over 90 percent. This suggests that it can remedy a flu naturally. You can consume turmeric as a preventive or when you notice the first signs of a flu. To reap the full benefits, you should take 250 to 500 mg daily.

    2. Cinnamon

      Not only does cinnamon taste amazing on nearly everything sweet. It’s also an incredible immune booster. In fact, cinnamon is one of the most potent antioxidants in the world. And when you combine it with raw honey, it can help you get rid of a cold in a few days.

    3. Cayenne Pepper

      One of the most powerful medicinal herbs in the world, cayenne pepper helps to knock out flus and colds in no time. Cayenne pepper not only boosts your immune system. It also helps to ease congestion. What’s more, cayenne pepper contains capsicum, which is a great source of vitamin C. Cayenne pepper is also loaded with beta carotene and antioxidants that further boost your immune system.
