Fresh turmeric citrus cooler

The change in season brings along a host of infections. During this transition of climate from cold to hot or vice verse, human body is more vulnerable to infections especially cold and flu. School going Kids are more effected as the  infections are easily transmitted  among kids through sneezing or coughing openly .The best way to fight these common infections is increasing the body immunity  the natural way .

Fresh turmeric is one miracle ingredient that does wonders if consumed in proper dose.Citrus fruits are naturally capable to combat flu and cold.It is a myth among the Indian community that you should avoid citrus fruits if suffering from cold and flu.But the truth is our body requires vitamin c to fight against the flu causing virus.Care should  be taken that the fruits are not sour and are  at room temperature.

When the kids were bored of having their turmeric milk ,I just gave them this cooler after school.It was very much liked by the folks .I haven't added any ice cubes to maintain its medicinal properties ,if you like your cooler chilled you can add ice cubes too.
