Boost the immune system

Posted by in Autoimmune disease, Healthy Living, Honey, Immunity Boost, Indian

This tonic is easy to make and is really effective.  It involves no cooking and I’ve seen benefits in using it for just one week.  2015-08-09 10.47.32

All we need is a glass jar (I used an empty jam jar, cleaned and sun-dried) honey, pepper and garlic.

Garlic : Everyone knows that garlic is really good for health.  Sadly though, cooking it destroys most of the benefits.  A study conducted by Washington State University showed that garlic is 100 times more effective than antibiotics in combating disease causing bacteria.  Its anti viral potency is more effective.  Garlic is also known to combat certain forms of cancer, provided we consume it raw.  Allicin, the compound that makes it so effective is destroyed on cooking.

Peppercorns : The health benefits of black pepper include relief from respiratory disorders, coughs, the common cold, constipation, indigestion, anemia, impotency, muscular strains, dental disease, pyorrhea, diarrhea, and heart disease.  It actively scrapes cholesterol deposits from the arterial walls.  

Honey : It is known as liquid gold and has benefits that are too numerous to list.  Anti inflammatory, digestive boost, combats cancer, etc. etc. 

So the best way to have the three is to combine all three things together.
