When you’re looking into how to remedy a cold, the amount of information can be overwhelming. A good way to narrow it down is to focus on how to remedy a cold naturally and safely, with familiar herbs or minerals that are known to be beneficial to our health. Good examples of how to remedy a cold naturally and safely include the following:

  • Garlic. Garlic has powerful antiviral properties to help fight infection. Mix fresh chopped garlic into foods or brew it into a tea.
  • Ginger. Ginger, in a tea or capsule, can provide cold relief by soothing your stomach and helping you rest.
  • Cayenne pepper. A bit of cayenne pepper powder in a broth or tea can ease common cold symptoms such as congested sinuses and chills.
  • Pomegranate. Pomegranate juice is packed with immune system boosting vitamins and antioxidants.
  • Zinc gluconate. Taking a high-quality zinc gluconate cold remedy can substantially reduce the duration of your cold. Scientific theory suggests that zinc ions can interfere with the ability of the common cold virus to reproduce by inhibiting the cold virus’ ability to attach to the receptors on respiratory epithelial cells in the upper respiratory tract, and thereby reduce a cold’s duration.*
