The New York Times recently posted an article arguing that Vitamin D and Calcium are no help in curing your wintertime cough. At Urban Remedy we are always searching for the best ways to help you feel great, so here is a list of ingredients that may in fact sooth your upper respiratory struggles.

Cinnamon: Warm and spicy cinnamon is thought to increase circulation and open breathing, perfect for someone struggling with a cough. As an added bonus, cinnamon may reduce fatigue and act as an aphrodisiac. Now who says cough cures can’t be sexy?

Carrots: Carrots support liver function and digestion while also providing high Vitamin A supply to benefit the immune system and the skin. A strong immune system will help battle any residual viruses causing your cough, so be sure to snack on carrots until the phlem settles. At Urban Remedy, we drink our carrots in our Beam juice. Healthy and completely delicious!

Lemons: Lemons are rich in Vitamin C and bioflavonoid which benefit the liver and may clear mucus. With mucus cleared, that cough is sure to improve in no time. Try some hot water with lemon for a warm, soothing treat, or Boost your immunity with a juice for delicious relief.

Cardamom: Cardamom is said to benefit the lungs, kidneys and heart while elevating the mood. Healthy lungs help your breathing stabilize, and your cough clear right on up! This month Nourish your body, for a cough-free season.

E3 Live: E3Live is a powerful bluegreen algae that improves your immunity. By fueling your strong immune system with the soldiers it needs in battle against even the deepest cough, your health will triumph this season. Refresh you immunity with a juice for ultimate protection.
