Fall is coming which means the risk of contracting common winter diseases is higher. Mulled wine is great to prevent and cure common colds and the flu. Here is a traditional recipe presented to you by Delices and Gourmandises if no medicine is available.
Mulled wine contains alcohol, phenols, and various minerals. It is also a highly effective natural antibiotic. It also naturally boosts your body temperature to help your system fight viruses and decrease the risk of infection.
Mulled wine is often paired with other ingredients to fight off toxins. Cinnamon and mulled wine help repel bacteria. Associated with cloves, it eases pain and inflammation. If you want to cure infection, then pairing thyme and mulled wine is what you need. Lemons are also well known anti-infective fruits because of the citric acid and vitamin C they contain. In order to stimulate the immune system, you can consume mulled wine with onion.
To cure the flu, choose a bottle of a smooth and fruity white wine such as a Gamay du Beaujolais. Add a single sprig of thyme, 250gr of chopped onions, and 4 teaspoons of honey. Let the mixture marinate for a week before filtering it.
Red wine also has health benefits. Use a nice Beaujolais, like those proposed by Delices and Gourmandises and pour it in a pan. Add 3 teaspoons of honey, 2 teaspoons of cinnamon, 4 cloves, and orange zests.
The effectiveness of this type of remedy depends on the way you prepare and cook it, which makes it challenging. As a matter of fact, you have to make sure the mixture doesn’t boil. It just needs to be slightly warm in order to preserve all the necessary molecules. You can always try to have a sip at the mixture to see if the taste is good for you.2016-09-12
