Turmeric cures cold and cough (using jaggery)

In the last post, we have seen how turmeric is used with milk to cure cold and cough. Now, here in this post we are going to see yet another Indian traditional remedi for curing cold and cough. This time turmeric is combined with jaggery.

  • Take turmeric powder and jaggery in equal amount.
  • Mix it well.
  • Make small capsules from the mixture.

Eat 3-4 capsules each day and you will be relieved from cold and cough. 
We know that, Turmeric promotes the growth of White Blood Cells(i.e.WBC's). Similarly, as  Jaggery is a rich source of iron, it promotes the growth of Red Blood Cells (i.e. RBC's) which causes enrichment of haemoglobin. Jaggery is also hot in nature. Turmeric is bitter in taste. Hence, Jaggery adds it's sweet taste to the mixture.  

So, here's yet another Indian traditional remedi. Simple yet effective.
