how to fight off colds and flu
Eat a clove of raw garlic
Garlic is great for its antimicrobial properties.
So when you feel a scratchy throat coming on - head to the kitchen and chew on a piece of garlic
Maybe it doesn't sound that yummy but it could help prevent your sore throat from getting worse
if you think that sounds too gross - try crushing the clove and swallowing it whole, mixed with apple sauce, or have something to eat right afterwards
Garlic can also relax blood vessels, increase blood flow, and prevent blood clots and oxidative damage.
