Food can be used to fend off the flu. Common foods many people already have in their pantries can be powerful flu-fighters.
Garlic, for example, contain compounds that have direct antiviral effects and may help destroy the flu before it effects the body. Raw garlic is best. In addition to garlic, citrus fruits, ginger, yogurt, and dark leafy greens can boost immunity and fight the flu, according to Mother Nature’s Network.
The British Journal of Nutrition said that dark chocolate supports T-helper cells, which increase the immune system’s ability to defend against infection.
A study published in the American Journal of Therapeutics showed that carnosine, a compound found in chicken soup, can help strengthen the body’s immune system and help fight off the flu in its early stages.
