You can’t deny this season of love has opened the floodgates for diseases and infections. Like, in Saajana, we saw Pratap sneezing the following day after getting drenched along with Rama in heavy rains. If you want to avoid falling sick, here are homemade remedies that you can start taking before a throat infection can take you down. After all, isn’t it said, ‘Prevention is better than cure?’

The superhero of spices, Garlic is one of the best foods that will help increase your metabolic rate and your immunity. Being packed with antioxidants, you can add crushed garlic to your gravy and bhajis that your Aai makes at home. Every day, in the morning, have garlic juice shots which help prevent from falling sick and having a sore throat.

Just like garlic, mushrooms have an abundant wealth of antioxidants. Along with this, the selenium content, which isn’t found in many other fruits and vegetables, is useful to prevent inflammation.

3. Fermented foods

Being rich in probiotic bacteria, foods like yoghurt and homemade pickles are absolutely fantastic during this season. The healthy bacteria prevent stomach infections while improving digestion and promoting gut health. The microbes will protect you from falling sick by guarding your gut.

4. Fruits

Back in school, your teachers weren’t wrong when they proclaimed, “An apple a day keeps the doctor away.” It is mandatory to include pomegranate, apples and citrus-rich lemon to your meal. This helps detoxify your digestive system and keep you away from dangers.

5. Herbs

Don’t forget to include turmeric, ashwagandha and tulsi in your everyday diet. Their antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties are the warriors who keep your body safe from all the viruses. You can chew on to 1-2 tulsi leaves, have ashwagandha powder and include turmeric in your foods.
