SPICES  NOT ONLY ADD FLAVOR TO OUR FOOD, BUT THEY ALSO BOOST OUR IMMUNITY IN MANY WAYS.  CERTAIN SPICES CONTAIN ANTI-VIRAL AND ANTIOXIDANT PROPERTIES.  GARLIC, WHICH IS LOADED WITH ALLION AND ALLICIN, CONTAINS ANTIMICROBIAL, ANTIVIRAL, ANTIFUNGAL AND ANTIPROTOZIAL PROPERTIES.  TO GET THE MOST BENEFIT  FOR YOUR COLD AND FLU SYMPTOMS, IT SHOULD BE CONSUMED RAW.  RATHER THAN CHEWING ON A CLOVE OF GARLIC, (AND AVOIDING BEING IN THE COMPANY OF OTHERS), IT CAN BE MINCED AND ADDED TO SALADS OR COOKED FOODS.  THIS MAKES IT A BIT EASIER TO CONSUME.  



CAYENNE PEPPER, MOST OFTEN USED IN MEXICAN, SOUTHWESTERN AND INDIAN FOODS, CONTAINS CAPSAICIN, WHICH HELPS CLEAR UP SINUS PASSAGES AND REDUCES THE SEVERITY OF COLDS.

CINNAMON IS HELPFUL IN RELIEVING VOMITING AND DIARRHEA.  CINNAMON MIXED WITH HONEY EASES A SORE THROAT.

TURMERIC, THE NATURAL INGREDIENT FOUND IN CURRY, ALSO IS NOTED FOR ITS ANTI-INFLAMMATORY, ANTIVIRAL, ANTIFUNGAL AND ANTIMICROBIAL PROPERTIES.  ADD THIS SPICE TO SOUPS, STEWS, MEATLOAF AND CHICKEN DISHES TO BRING OUT THE EXTRA FLAVOR.  IT IS VERY POWERFUL IN RELIEVING COLD SYMPTOMS.
