Gear up during flu season with this natural immune booster juice, or just to boost your immune system and natural disease prevention mechanisms.
The high vitamin C and phytonutrient content of oranges and lemons serve to support your immune system.
Carrots are a strong source of beta-carotene, which is converted into vitamin A in the body and can help strengthen the immune system. Ginger is antiviral, garlic and oregano are antibacterial, and turmeric is antimicrobial (an agent that kills microorganisms or inhibits their growth). Celery and parsley have anti-inflammatory effects and also provide a boost of blood-cleansing chlorophyll. Prevention is easier than cure!
