Rospotrebnadzor named hot drinks protecting against colds

Rospotrebnadzor expert Provotorova: green tea with cranberries is useful for immunity which will help protect against colds. Her words are quoted by Izvestia.

The specialist explained that green tea with cranberries or sea buckthorn is especially useful, since these berries are rich in ascorbic acid and bioflavonoids. However, they should not be exposed to high temperatures. According to Provotorova, berries should be put in tea, which is more than 60 degrees.

“In general, for many products, especially fruits and berries, heatstroke is not very beneficial. Ascorbic acid is destroyed, which means that it is no longer worth hoping for vitamin C supplementation, “the expert said, noting that many vitamins can be destroyed by high temperatures.

She recommended adding juice squeezed from berries to already chilled tea … In addition, spices, cloves, cinnamon, turmeric, cumin or ginger can be added to ordinary tea.

In hot milk, which many treat for colds, the expert advised adding pumpkin puree with cinnamon, vanilla and grated chocolate.

Earlier, the therapist Suri Dadasheva warned about the dangers of drinking hot tea and other drinks. According to her, frequent consumption of too hot drinks can trigger the development of esophageal cancer.
