‘Black Death’ or ‘The Black Plague’ was a medieval pandemic that swept through Asia and Europe in the late 1340s, killing an estimated 25 million people. During the time of the ‘Black Plague,’ some people found a way to survive. It was discovered that these survivors protected themselves by eating a concoction of garlic and herbs extracted in vinegar. There are multiple versions of the story, and over time, many different versions of the anti-plague formula have emerged.
The anti-plague formula is the perfect thing to take to protect yourself during the cold and flu season. Keeping the ingredients on hand in case you or the people around you get sick is a great idea. Also, with ever-evolving news about the new coronavirus, it’s as important as ever to keep your immune system strong and your body healthy.
The anti-plague formula’s most common ingredients are garlic, onion, ginger, horseradish, cayenne pepper, and apple cider vinegar. We know now that these herbs and spices have excellent medicinal value. This concoction is ideal for fighting off or treating colds and flus. The ingredients are anti-bacterial, anti-viral, stimulate the immune system, and help open the sinuses and nasal passages.
This recipe is easy to make and uses everyday ingredients that you may already have in your kitchen!
