During the cold and flu season watching your intake of nutrients that can fight them is critical. One way to get my daughter a significant amount of anti cold and flu ingredients is making juices. The trick is to start with their favorite fruit(s) and then add the secret boosters.

The best known cold and flu fighters are:

Lemon, Ginger and Honey
The anti-viral properties in lemon fight infections and halt the progress of a cold. Ginger’s warming action is excellent for treating a cold or flu. Honey adds an anti-bacterial property to help hasten the healing of an infection.
You can also prepare an excellent warm drink with these!

Cabbage, Carrot and Celery
Cabbage and carrots stimulate the immune system and the production of anti-bodies that make good remedy in fighting off bacterial and viral infections. The addition of celery makes the recipe more tasty and provides the vitamins and minerals to support the immune system.

When you feel a sore throat or a cold coming, eat raw garlic. Garlic has very potent anti-bacterial and anti-viral properties. It is also effective to prevent recurrent infections, frequent yeast infections and other infections.

I know this last one is hard to “cover up” but can easily be added to the tomato sauce on a spaghetti. Onion, especially the sweet ones can replace garlic and has similar properties.
