Garlic – A powerful natural antibiotic, proven by scientists. Unlike conventional antibiotics, the bacteria doesn’t build up forming super resistant bugs, rather garlic may be taken over long periods. Garlic is also a good source of Vitamin C, B6, selenium, manganese and calcium. It helps to get rid of toxins from the body and cleanses the blood.
Onion- Contain Vitamin C, B6, iron, niacin, chromium and calcium. Onions have been used throughout history to treat asthma, as they contain a compound that helps the muscles to relax. They help loosen mucus from the body. It also contains antiseptic and antibacterial properties, and help fight against tuberculosis, bronchitis, and urinary infections. It also causes increased circulation, therefore increasing sweating, which is helpful in reducing fevers.
