The best way to reap the benefits of garlic is to have it raw, like in salads. If that’s too much for you, try adding them to your soups and curries on a daily basis.

6. Vitamin C

Whether you’re a fruit lover or not, loading up on fruits with Vitamin C is the need of the hour. Fruits such as oranges and pineapples are great immunity boosters; have at least a couple of them in a week. The juice from these fruits are also great for your health.

7. Oregano

Who knew our favourite Italian seasoning was a great antibiotic superhero. Oregano is known to strengthen immunity, packs in a huge amount of antioxidants and has anti-inflammatory properties. Sprinkle them onto your salads and soups; or better yet, cook your food in oregano oil if you can lay your hands on them.

These natural, traditional antibiotic foods should be a regular part of your diet if you wish for better all-round health.
