How to Feed a Cold
Jewish mothers around the world rejoiced when scientists proved that chicken soup can reduce the inflammation associated with the common cold. Now research is revealing that other home-brewed concoctions may also reduce the severity of those pesky cold symptoms. Here’s a look at what to stock up on during the long cold and flu season:
- Orange and Grapefruit Juice. Both are good sources of vitamin C, which can help shorten the cold’s duration.
- Whole-Grain Cereal and Bread. Rich in vitamins and minerals, such as vitamin E and zinc, these items have been shown to boost the immune system.
