Colds are caused by rhinoviruses that infect the upper respiratory tract. There are a number of fruit and vegetables that have anti-viral properties, including apples, garlic and ginger. While those three dont mix well in a single juice, I do like apple and ginger as a combination.
- 3 granny smith apples
- 1 inch of ginger
- small bunch of parsley
Juice the ingredients and drink at the first sign of a cold.
I'd also recommend taking a teaspoon of bee pollen as an additional supplement. I find that taking bee pollen regularly keeps colds and flu away.
