“This cough-inhibiting concoction may help with easing of cold symptoms. Garlic inhibits cough and cold microbes and is an effective decongestant. Honey are considered by many to be a respiratory tonic, improving breathing, and is also known to be antimicrobial, assisting the immune system with fighting infection. Lemon reduces and thins mucus and alters the body's pH, which may make it less hospitable to viruses and bacteria. I make it every winter to prevent colds and because I think it tastes good. I adapted the recipe from one in Prevention magazine. To find it, you can Google the article title: This Tea Busts Colds!”
