Cold and Flu Prevention Tips - Tip #9
Drink plenty of liquids Staying hydrated with plenty of liquids, especially plain water or hot tea, can help the body better fight off germs (dailycaring.com)
Drinking your daily recommended amount of water doesn’t guarantee you won’t get sick, but it does help fight off illnesses through a few ways. First and foremost, staying hydrated helps keep the mucus membranes of your nasal passages moist so they can catch viral invaders before entering your body. This is your body’s first line of defense. If something does slip through—fluids help your body circulate blood more freely, enabling virus fighting white blood cells to reach their target faster so they don’t have as much time to replicate. Furthermore, drinking water also adds oxygen to your blood—which helps ensure all your body’s systems have enough oxygen to function at their best level to remove toxins and speed up recovery (https://www.aquasana.com/info/healthy-hydration).
