Ameliorate is a verb that means to make something better. 

The French word meilleur (me YARE) beans ‘better.’ This is where our word of the day comes from. Ameliorated is often, but not always, used in a medical context.

When I was ill, I found that chicken soup ameliorated my cold. With every sip, I could feel my symptoms slowly fade away.
