There are many ways to help your immune system fight the flu naturally — fresh air, sunshine, minimal immune stressers — and a great way to boost your immune system is with healthy food and drinks.
This healthy, natural drink helps boost your immune system and fights the flu: lemon, garlic, honey, ginger, cayenne pepper, turmeric, and purified water. Turmeric is a super-spice that contains a high amount of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties, which stimulate the immune system. Ginger and raw honey are also powerful immune boosters that have antibiotic effects and are effective in fighting inflammation.
