Here’s a super immune boosting homemade cough and cold syrup that will help shorten the duration and alleviate the symptoms of a cold or cough.
All the ingredients in this homemade cough and cold syrup have powerful healing properties to aid in helping a cold and cough:
Raw Honey – According to multiple studies, honey is effective in helping a cough. Honey contains powerful anti-bacterial, anti-viral and anti-inflammatory properties. In fact, honey strengthens the white blood corpuscles to fight bacterial and viral diseases.
Coconut Oil – The large amount of lauric acid in coconut oil kills bacteria, viruses and fungi, which helps to starve off infections. Furthermore, when coconut oil is enzymatically digested, it also forms a monoglyceride called monolaurin. Like lauric acid, monolaurin also kills harmful pathogens like bacteria, viruses, and fungi.
Fresh Lemon – Lemons are packed with Vitamin C and flavonoids, which aid in supporting the body’s natural defenses.
Cinnamon – Cinnamon contains anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, anti-viral, and anti-fungal properties.
