Secrets to fight off the lurgy

Whenever you feel that scratch in the back of your throat, it’s time to panic – especially in festive season, getting ill is a massive no-no.

But what happens when that tickle kicks in, can you really fight the lurgy in time for the office party or the main event itself on December 25 with family?

The answer is yes!

You can boost your immune system with two simple ingredients that you can easily chuck in your trolley or online shop from any supermarket – turmeric and honey.

Turmeric, aka the god of spices, is wellness in plant form.

Known for its bright orange colour, turmeric packs such a powerful punch that it boasts properties to improve heart health, prevent against Alzheimer’s, and reduce risk of cancer.

It’s a potent anti-inflammatory and antioxidant, which protects against from arthritis, and is even said to decrease symptoms of depression.

While many of us may be familiar with sprinkling it in powder form into a curry, there are many ways to enjoy Mother Nature’s finest.

You can toss it in with roasted veggies, add punch to your eggs, sling it in with rice, or if you’re feeling adventurous, even blend it in with a smoothie.

Meanwhile, honey really is the nectar that makes hearts sing.

From naturally soothing a sore throat to helping digestive issues, this liquid gold is a vital source of antioxidants that can fight infections and heal wounds.

For a double whammy, you can even combine the two for a turmeric/honey mash-up.

Known as ‘turmeric bombs’, these health bullets are loaded with anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties that can boost your immune system the moment you chow down.
