Here Are 5 Immunity-Boosting Herbs And Spices You Can Add To Your Winter Diet:
Haldi (turmeric) is a staple in Indian households. It's something we have been using since time immemorial. It contains an antioxidant called curcumin, which acts as a natural immune booster. A great way to reap its benefits is by sipping on turmeric milk, or kadha.
Another excellent herb you can add to your winter diet is ginger. The anti-inflammatory properties present in it help strengthen the immune system. Make delicious ginger soup or tea to keep colds and coughs at bay. You can even add it to your dishes.
Mint (pudina) is also beneficial for your immune system. It is packed with a wide range of antioxidants and prevents illnesses. You can add pudina leaves to lukewarm water and drink it daily. Apart from this, you can even make chutney and pair it with your food.
You must also incorporate tulsi into your winter diet. This wonder herb contains antioxidants that can fight a variety of different viruses, infections, and allergies. Not just immunity, but tulsi also helps improve your overall health and well-being.
Cinnamon not only gives a delightful aroma, but it is also beneficial for boosting immunity. It has powerful antibacterial properties that naturally help your immune system keep infections at bay. So, add it to your winter diet now to stay fit and healthy.
