With the current global scenario in mind, tt's safe to say that the only thing standing between us and a raging pandemic right now, is our immune system. So, needless to say, one of the most effective preventive measures we can take against the COVID-19 outbreak, is working on strengthening our immune system so it's sufficiently prepared to ward off infections and fight against diseases.


There are about a million highly-recommended pills and capsules scattered all over the internet, that supposedly work wonders on our immune system. But when you have the option of achieving the same benefits with tried and tested all-natural remedies, why would you go the chemical way, at all? 


Here's a list of 5 such absolutely natural home remedies, that you probably haven't heard of, but that genuinely go a long way, in building your immunity: 


1. Kali Mirch With A Tablespoon Of Honey

Packed with nutrients, and super low on calories, red bell peppers can immensely help in enhancing your immunity and boosting your respiratory health. They also contain generous amounts of fibre, folate and iron.
