Sick as a dog? Stay hydrated with ginger ale and tea.

When cold weather hits, so does cold and flu season. Fevers can cause dehydration, as can vomiting and excessive sweating. To get better faster, stay hydrated with clear liquids and sports drinks. For a chest cold, opt for hot water or tea (the warm liquids will help break up chest congestion).

Go for Ginger:

If it’s the stomach flu that’s got you down, go for ginger ale or ginger tea — the spicy root is a great way to help quell nausea.

Sorry, C:

While consuming extra vitamin C may help colds strike less frequently, there’s no evidence to support it can prevent or treat sickness that’s already set in.
