When I was in my early 20’s, I learned of the benefits of clove tea. Over the years I’ve seen a number of versions of this – and have blatantly stolen what was good – to add to my own recipe.
I (and many of my friends who’ve tried it) have seen immediate results from sore throats, lingering colds and flu onset. The BEST quick solution to the onset of the cold or flu is still liposomal Vitamin C – 1000mg twice a day. (All other Vitamin C is crap unless you have an IV treatment of it.
