Cold remedies

As the day are getting colder, you don’t know how to dress with the temperature changing . One day it’s warm another day it’s cold… The perfect season to get a cold! At Chi HQ  we all had a cold, sneezing a hundred times per day, blowing your nose until it becomes red. Want to know how to get through your cold quickly? Your doctor can’t do much to cure it. However, some foods and drinks can cut a cold short!


If you want to know what you should eat or drink during a cold, this article is for you;)

1. What to eat?

Lemon and orange

Lemon and orange are full of vitamin C, which may help shorten a cold and work as a natural decongestant. Aim for 500 mg of vitamin C four times a day.  Other good sources of vitamin C include strawberries, tomatoes, and broccoli.

Soup

Hot soup raises the temperature in your nose and throat, creating an inhospitable environment for viruses that prefer cooler, drier climes. 

 

Hot peppers

 Hot chili peppers contain capsaicin, the compound that gives them their kick and acts as a decongestant to help relieve a stuffy nose. Can’t stand the heat? Mild bell peppers can help, too. They don’t have capsaicin, but they’re full of vitamin C.

Garlic and ginger

During cold and flu season, one popular folk remedy is to eat a spoonful of raw, chopped garlic cloves – or even to gnaw right on a fresh clove! Not excited to eat raw garlic?  You can try to put some in your vegetable smoothie or just make some toast with it and add some olive oil.

What to drink?

Hot tea

Drink plenty of liquids to stay hydrated during a cold, and make sure they’re hot. Black tea helps soothe a sore throat and chase away the chills with a good dose of virus-fighting interferon. Add some honey and a squeeze of lemon for vitamin C.

Raw coconut water

Hydration is so important especially when you have a cold. To achieve proper hydration, your body needs electrolytes to help maintain a state of fluid balance. Coconut water is a perfect source of electrolytes, you can find even more electrolytes in the Chi Raw coconut water, because it’s 100% Raw, not heated! It’s the freshest coconut water that you can find.
