- Never before have we been so cautious about our immunity. As we begin to prioritise our health over anything else - there are a few things that we must keep in mind right now. We have to understand that when it comes to immunity, you must not trust everything you hear about. Taking pills and medicines without consulting an expert is not advisable. You can however, try looking for some ideas in your kitchen, which are safe to opt. Yes, you heard us; your pantry is packed with many spices and herbs that are known to be immunity-boosters if consumed in moderation. Something as simple and soothing as tea or kadha could help you bolster your immunity in this flu season. We have a recipe that is sure to impress.
This clove and cinnamon tea is a refreshing mix of health and taste. While clove has a nice hot and pungent flavour, cinnamon has mildly sweet tones. Together they make a combination that spells blockbuster. The spices also happen to be a treasure trove of antioxidants. Antioxidants fight free radical activity that may be held responsible for weakened immunity. Cloves are also packed with antiseptic, antiviral and antimicrobial properties. The anti-inflammatory compounds may help heal sore throats, cold and cough, and headache.
