23rd June: With the coronavirus pandemic soaring globally, health experts are putting in their efforts to find its vaccine or treatment, but until then people are trying to find the cure through natural and organic methods.
People have been stocking up on a lot of food and essentials that are enough to keep them holed up at home for at least a week or two. As far as food and ingredients are concerned, we should stock up on those that keep our bodies healthy and immune to infectious viruses within these crucial weeks.
We all must practice a healthy diet to keep our immune systems strong in order to battle with the coronavirus.
Lucy Bishop, an experienced nutritional therapist based in Warwickshire, U.K., has listed some of the best immunity-boosting herbs and spices that you should buy during the COVID-19 threat, as per the Coventry Telegraph:
Ginger is a staple of the Asian cuisine, which possess antibacterial properties and can inhibit viral activity in your body, therefore keeping coronavirus at bay. Some studies have found that its fresh root provides the most health benefits and can be used in many dishes. Ginger tea is very useful to drink to boost immunity.
Garlic possesses antibacterial, antiviral, and antifungal properties that could help prevent illness, especially virus-linked illnesses. It is mostly used as an ingredient in making dishes, and garlic if consumed raw is helpful as immunity and health-boosting food.
Turmeric is rich in curcumin, an antioxidant that is known for its anti-inflammatory effects.
Recent research has shown that turmeric can fight back against infectious viruses such as influenza and hepatitis C. Turmeric is not just an important ingredient when making curries, it can also be used to make soups.
This sweet and aromatic spice is high in antioxidants and packed with important nutrients. Clove essential oil, on the other hand, has antibacterial properties and can relieve respiratory conditions such as asthma and cough, with the latter being a major coronavirus symptom. Cloves can be used in making a delicious immune-boosting tea when mixed with ginger roots.
This beneficial, healthy herb is more potent in oil form. Oregano contains various antioxidants, and one of these is carvacrol, which has been shown to reverse or reduce bacterial, fungal, and viral infections.
