Sip Some Tea
A warm cup of tea may provide relief when you have a sore throat, but it may also help prevent you from getting sick too. “In order to stay healthy, it’s important to stay hydrated. One way to do that is to drink tea,” says Dr. Segal.
But not all teas are created equal. Dr. Segal recommends sipping on green, black or white tea, since they contain powerful antioxidants that can help your body eliminate bacteria that cause colds or the flu.
