    MsPia's Note:

    Adapted from The Herb Companion ''Garlic is the tastiest and best all-around stimulant for the immune system. Of the other immunostimulant herbs it also includes shiitake mushrooms, calendula, ginger and turmeric .To make an immunity-boosting soup also use some ground black pepper (to enhance the uptake of the curcumin) and some chiles or cayenne.''
