Five Spices Which Can Strengthen Your Immunity
Spices can cause incredible effects on our health and wellbeing. Different spices were used in traditional medicine for centuries and many medicines are made of natural ingredients such as herbs, spices, and inflorescences.
You can significantly strengthen your immunity and cope with various malaises by introducing spices and other natural ingredients in your ration. It is also important to know how to use them properly and prepare potions.
Perhaps, ginger is the healthiest and the most useful spice which was ever used by humans. Its healing and strengthening properties are able to cure the majority of respiratory and common cold illnesses. Ginger is extremely rich in vitamin C, A, and B groups and in minerals such as potassium, phosphorus, chromium, and others. You can eat raw ginger root by adding it to your meals or prepare a ginger-lemon potion by shredding these ingredients in a blender and then adding it to hot beverages.
Cumin has great anti-cold features and can cure various cold and respiratory illnesses such as flu, colds, asthma, and bronchitis. Cumin is a nature’s painkiller, purifier, calmer, and healing medicine and was used for thousands of years to cure various diseases.
Turmeric is well-known for its healing and anti-inflammatory properties. It’s an effective antibiotic that cleanses cardio-vascular vessels, purifies the blood, and reduces cholesterol levels.
Boil turmeric with a small amount of water for ten minutes to make a healing turmeric paste. Turmeric paste can be mixed with plant-based milk to make a tasteful and healthy beverage.
Fennel is extremely good for the digestive system and respiratory organs. Its properties could be compared with ginger root but fennel seeds include vast amounts of useful essential oils, carotene, and rare vitamins of B, E, and K groups. Decongestant, anti-inflammation, disinfection, and painkilling properties of fennel were widely appreciated in traditional medicine. Shredded fennel seeds should be boiled in water (1 tsp of seeds for 1 cup of water) for thirty minutes.
All spiced potions should be sieved and stored in the fridge for one month. You should intake two tablespoons of a spiced potion a day from two to four weeks.
