While we all know that there is no cure for the common cold there are somethings you can take that certainly making having a cold more tolerable!  The best all natural cold treatment I have tried to date uses the immune system boosting powers of Apple Cider Vinegar, Honey and Ginger to make a soothing drink that helps to ease all the common symptoms of a cold.  Great for stopping the sniffle, soothing the throat and easing your cough, just what you need as you stare down the barrel of another 6 weeks of Winter!

The treatments you ask?

Take the following:

  • Once Cup of Spreyton Fresh Apple Cider Vinegar
  • One good sized hand of fresh ginger, sliced thinly.
  • Half a Cup of honey
  • 4 cups of water

combine all ingredients in a large saucepan and bring to the boil, reduce to a simmer, put the lid on and simmer gently for 15 minutes.

strain the liquid and sip a cup at a time as a soothing tea.

Another simple alternative that works wonderfully for a sore throat is to add 2 Tablespoons of Spreyton Fresh Apple Cider Vinegar to 1 Tablespoon of Honey in a microwave proof cup, microwave for 20 – 30 seconds to liquefy the honey and then sip slowly!  Make a fresh cup whenever the throat starts to bother you!

The best advice though is to not get a cold at all, and to help with this keep your immune system strong by taking a Tablespoon or 2 of Spreyton Apple Cider Vinegar diluted in water every day!  The natural probiotics in the ACV will help boost your immune system so the cold bugs have a much harder time grabbing a hold of you!

Until next time!

Cheers from Spreyton Fresh!
