It seems to happen every Fall. We begin spending more time indoors, the leaves are changing, and germs get closed up with in gyms, offices and schools and seem to bounce back and forth between everyone. Then it happens…someone in your house gets sick and it doesn’t end until everyone has had the plague. I’m sure you’re like everyone else this flu season and can’t afford to get sick.
A little prevention, though, can go a long way and fresh fruits and vegetables are chock full of nutrients that can help keep your immune system going strong and stay strong when the germs come calling. Here are two immunity boost juice recipes to help keep the doctor away and keep you healthy. The following recipes are simple and easy to make.
The first recipe can boost your immune system’s fighting power. The second can help you fight the flu if you already have it while giving your immune system a boost. You can enjoy these juices as much or as little as you want. You can drink one everyday or up to three times a day depending on if you are sick or just improving your immune system. Remember, listen to your body. If you are juicing often and your body is sending you signals to slow down your intake, do it.
