Victory over the disease: 5 products that are indispensable for colds

Viruses and bacteria fear them like fire and run away from the human body.

Winter is in full swing - as soon as the snowfalls have subsided, a thaw has arrived... With such capricious weather, it is very easy to catch a cold. These great five products will help you deal with it as quickly as possible:


It has antimicrobial and antiviral properties and helps strengthen the immune system. Add it to food (preferably fresh or pickled, but not heat-treated) to fully experience the healing properties.


Its spicy taste will relieve cold symptoms and relieve inflammation. By making ginger tea or adding ginger to a salad or fish dish, you will be one step closer to recovery. There is no need to consume it in large quantities, since the pungency of ginger can cause stomach discomfort. A small piece will be enough.


It boasts a pronounced anti-inflammatory effect, and also delicately relieves sore throat. Drinking turmeric or adding it to various dishes will significantly ease your condition.



This product effectively fights diseases of the upper respiratory tract and also reduces fever. It is better not to add it to hot tea, since boiling water neutralizes the beneficial properties of honey, but to eat it as a snack with the drink. But it is not forbidden to add honey to milk, but not when it is hot, but when it is warm. This mixture softens a sore throat and copes with fever in no time. Before consuming honey, be sure to ensure that you do not have an allergic reaction to bee products.


Spicy seasoning (like any other, such as wasabi or horseradish) will help relieve nasal congestion and make breathing easier. Surely, you have felt a runny nose after eating something spicy - this is how the “punching” properties of mustard and other hot seasonings manifest themselves.
