I absolutely love anything 'garlicky'. So it is no surprised that I researched the health benefits of eating this wonderful allium (member of the onion family).
Although mainstream science doesn't support its antiviral/antibacterial benefits, I know firsthand that garlic has helped myself and my children get rid of some nasty colds. Garlic by itself is a good but pair it with honey (anti-viral and anti-bacterial) and lemon (antioxidant rich) and you've got a surprisingly tasty cold remedy. Try this tea when you feel yourself coming down with a 'bug'.
- Boil 5 organic garlic coves in 3 cups of distilled water for 10 minutes.
- Reduce heat and let it steep for 20 minutes.
- Add 1 tablespoon of raw honey and 1 tablespoon of organic lemon juice.
- Let the concoction cool to a comfortable temperature, drink and enjoy!
