cold and flu remedies with BIBO
Keep colds and flu at bay with a BIBO.
It’s that time of the year again – cold and flu season is here.
But with good hydration and nutrition you can help prevent winter colds and flu.
When the temperature dives you should be drinking plenty of water, herbal teas and nourishing soups. Doctors say staying hydrated can help to stave off infections.
Water constantly flushes harmful toxins out through the lymph system.
And drinking hot black or green tea with lemon and honey is also a great way to keep germs at bay.
When you breathe in steam from hot drinks it stimulates the cilia – the hair follicles in the nose – to move out germs more efficiently. Lemon thins mucus, and honey is antibacterial – a perfect combination.
If you catch the sniffles in China, you are likely to be served ginger tea. Chinese herbalists have been prescribing this remedy for centuries. They claim ginger tea can miraculously cure colds, relieve headaches, combat nausea, improve circulation and fight certain viruses.
Not a tea drinker? Then any warm liquid – including chicken soup – can help relieve cold and flu symptoms. Heated drinks help loosen congestion and stimulate the flow of mucus, as well as keep you hydrated.
And researchers have recently discovered what grandmothers have suspected all along – that the ingredients in chicken soup (including the chicken stock, carrot, onion, and celery) might actually have a medicinal effect on the body’s immune system. Chicken soup was found to ease the inflammation caused by cold viruses.
But whatever you choose – tea, coffee, hot chocolate, soup or noodles – it tastes so much better with filtered, purified boiling water on tap.
A BIBO Water Bar delivers instant purified chilled and boiling water at the touch of a button.
There’s no waiting for that noisy kettle to boil. With BIBO you can make piping hot drinks and soups at any time – night or day.
So why not beat the winter blues this season with a BIBO.
