Honey

This is a super powerful food which alleviates the inflammatory processes in the body and eliminates the bacteria, viruses and fungi. In case you have ulcers, allergies or wounds this is the perfect ingredient for you since it is rich in flavonoids and antioxidants.

Honey also strengthens the immune system due to its probiotic bacteria known as lactobacillus kunkeei.

It is really helpful if you suffer from phlegm, mucus and sore throat. However, ensure you use organic and pure honey only.

Lemon

Lemons contain potassium and vitamin C which strengthen the immune system. They soothe the inflammatory processes and eliminate microbes and the built up mucus. Moreover, lemons balance your pH levels, prevent dehydration and fatigue, regulate the blood tension and the function of the nervous system and keep the hormonal balance.

Ginger

Ginger helps the treatment of sinusitis and removes the mucus and phlegm. It can clean the lungs and improve the blood circulations due to the oleoresins. Ginger prevents the inflammation, morning sickness, fever and asthma problems as well.
