Research indicates that most of the natural remedies we will discuss below have anti-viral properties. These properties build the body’s immunity and also manage symptoms like sore throat, cough, and fever.
Here are some of the natural remedies that help manage Covid-19 symptoms.

Research noted that Vitamin C plays a major role in preventing and managing Covid-19 symptoms. Most citrus fruits contain lots of Vitamin C. Vitamin C is essential in managing flu-like symptoms associated with Covid-19.
Additionally, Vitamin C strengthens the immune system. The body does not make or store Vitamin C. For this reason, you need to consume as much Vitamin C as possible on a daily basis.
Just like citrus fruits, ginger has anti-viral properties. Additionally, it has anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. Ginger is arguably one of healthiest spices in the world. Most people associate it with its ability to help the body fight off diseases.
Consuming fresh ginger can help manage Covid-19 symptoms associated with infections in the respiratory organs. Additionally, ginger contains gingerol which lowers the risk of infection.
Apple cider vinegar
A lot of people use apple cider vinegar as a home remedy. It helps stop bacteria from spreading and a result quickens the recovery process.
You can also use apple cider vinegar to treat sore throats. Simply add two tablespoons of the apple cider to one cup of water and gargle it.
For the longest time, people have used honey to soothe sore throats and coughs. Raw honey is more effective compared to pasteurized honey.
