The Kitchen holds a wide variety of immune boosting ingredients. This includes honey and garlic, which seems to be an odd combination but can help boost your immune system.

The best way to combine the healing benefits of honey and garlic is to infuse raw honey into crushed garlic. Crushing the garlic allows its natural enzymes to reach their maximum potential. While soaking garlic cloves in honey will increase its immune boosting power and make it more palatable.

Raw honey is full of vitamins, mineral and enzymes. It also acts as an antioxidant to fight off free radicals. Honey contains incredible nutrients packed into just one small tablespoon. Added to that is the balance of nutrients will not spike your blood sugar like refined sugars do.  


Benefits of garlic

 

Garlic helps the body improve heart function, maintain healthy blood pressure and fight off fungal infections. Most importantly, it helps boost the immune system and prevent colds and the flu.


                             
What makes garlic a healthy and beneficial option is its principal and most potent active compound called allicin. This is also responsible for its strong taste and characteristic aroma.
