If you’re not feeling well, have you tried these five foods that can help with cold and flu symptoms? Here they are!
1.  Oysters.  It’s because of their zinc content, which is also an active ingredient in a lot of cold medicine.
2.  Garlic.  Garlic blocks enzymes involved in bacterial and viral infections.  Plus, it helps your immune system.
3.  Almonds.  Micronutrients in the outer skin can help you fight off a cold by boosting the sensitivity of your white blood cells.
4.  Kiwi.  A recent study had one group of people eat kiwi while they were sick, while another group ate bananas.  The kiwi group felt better up to four days faster than the banana people.
5.  Chicken Soup.  Tried, tested and true. And it might help because of the immune-boosting compound in chicken called carnosine, which helps with mucus and clearing up a stuffy nose. (Photo: Loch Fyne)
