The prob­lem: A COLD

Cosmopolitan (UK) - - Move -

WHEN EV­ERY­ONE IN THE OFFICE HAS ONE Gar­lic Not just an old wives’ tale. There’s now science to back up the smelly, cold-bust­ing ben­e­fits of gar­lic. In a study pub­lished by the Cochrane Li­brary, adults who re­ceived a placebo came down with nearly three times as many colds as those who had a daily gar­lic sup­ple­ment. That or­der of gar­lic bread? Now jus­ti­fi­able.

IF IT’S HIT HARD Kiwi Your grandma’s chicken soup has a ri­val. A study by the Bri­tish Jour­nal Of Nutrition took 132 adults and placed half on a daily diet that in­cluded four gold kiwi fruits, while the other half had two daily ba­nanas. The re­sult? The kiwi eaters’ sore throats eased away three days sooner than the ba­nana group. You can pick up a pack of golden ki­wis (they’re yel­low on the in­side, rather than green) from most ma­jor su­per­mar­kets.
