Winter - coughs and cold tonics
When its getting cold outside, why not try a few simple things to maintain optimal health over those cold winter months. Why not try this simple set of recipes below.
Mix 1-2 cloves of crushed garlic, a thumb sized piece of ginger (grated or crushed), a pinch of cayenne pepper, 1 Tbsp of Manuka honey and the juice of 1 lemon. Add boiling water, stir until the honey has dissolved and drink as hot as you can. Tuck yourself into bed and prepare to heat up.
Make a syrup by adding 1 onion (sliced) and 4 gloves of garlic (thickly sliced or lightly crushed) to a small pot, adding enough Manuka honey to cover. Heat the onions and garlic on a very low temperature for 30 mins until honey is warm and onions begin to soften. Pour into a jar and keep refrigerated once cooled. (will last up to 6 months). This can be enjoyed by the tablespoon daily or as often as required as a preventative, at the first signs of a cold, or to soothe symptoms such as coughs and sore throats.
For the convenience of the active compound in a capsule, or those worried about garlic breath, you can’t go past the fabulous Allimax capsules. Dose 2 -4 caps a day.
