Garlic is brilliant for your health. It has potent medicinal properties and not only makes food taste delicious but will make your body feel and look healthy. Garlic is nutritious, can combat illness, boost the immune system, reduce blood pressure and lower cholesterol, prevent heart disease and hardening of the arteries and definitely stop you from getting flu!
Ginger is also brilliant. It is one of the healthiest spices on the planet, filled with nutrients and bio active compounds and strong medicinal properties. Ginger can also reduce inflammation, take away nausea, lower blood sugar and cholesterol, prevent heart disease and – stop you from getting flu.
Put ginger and garlic together in a soup and see what happens!
A soup that is made of over fifty cloves of garlic, with ginger, some onions, thyme and lemon too, will destroy any virus coming its way! This includes the common cold, flu and also the norovirus. You only need to crush the ginger, crush the garlic, mix it all up and simmer in hot water for a few hours before drinking it. You can also eat them raw and crushed.
Garlic contains Allicin, Ginger contains Gingerol
There is no need to cough and splutter and sneeze though winter. Instead, make this soup and halt all viruses in their tracks.
The allicin in garlic has been proved to be 100 times more effective than pharmaceutical antibiotics. The gingerol in ginger is as powerful. It therefore makes sense to combine the two. Together they have anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties and will boost and strengthen the immune system and any virus coming their way.
Why isn’t everyone taking garlic and ginger?
Pharmaceutical companies are not very keen on the amazing benefits getting out into common public knowledge because there is no money in it for them. If anything, they will lose money. There is nothing in garlic, or ginger, that pharmaceuticals can market. But we know that by increasing your garlic and ginger intake in winter your flue symptoms can be lessened, shortened and even prevented.
Grow your own. Or buy it from the health store. Try and get garlic or ginger that is natural and organic, but either way, it is healthy, good for you and can only make you healthy!
