As a very wise woman once put it, “Bronchitis? Ain’t nobody got time for that!”
Unfortunately, it’s bronchitis season and the illness will strike some of us whether we’ve got room in our schedules for it or not. It will bring, of course, all its nasty symptoms like:
- Excess mucus production
- Difficulty breathing
The good news is that you can fight back against those symptoms with the help of a few simple ingredients. How simple?
• 2 bananas
• 2 tablespoons of honey
…that’s how simple!
How To Make A Tasty Bronchitis-Treating Drink
Once you’ve assembled your ingredients, begin by peeling the bananas. Mash them into a pulp with a wooden spoon. Just channel all that rage and frustration bronchitis has caused you and those bananas will be mashed in no time.
Next, place the bananas in a pot with 400 ml or 1 and 2/3 cups of boiling water. Let the two steep for a half hour. Then, once the mixture has cooled down, add your honey; this will keep the heat from destroying all those great nutrients in the honey.
Speaking of nutrients…
How This Remedy Works
Let’s stick with the honey and explore that first. Nature’s own sweetener is a potent antibiotic that will rid your body of bronchitis-causing bacteria. Of course, it also soothes sore throat.
Moving on to banana, researchers have proven that the elongated fruit is practically a miracle cure for bronchitis and other respiratory viruses. It’s all thanks to a compound called banana lectin, which covers viruses and renders them useless.
As for water – well, it’s obvious isn’t it? Water is absolutely crucial for treatment of any illness, including bronchitis. It will help you flush bacteria from your body and serves as one awesome vehicle for the other two ingredients.
