If you're looking for ways to fight cold and flu, and prevent illness, give your immune system a much-needed nutrient boost with one of these delicious, antioxidant-packed smoothies. Here are THE BEST 20 Immune Boosting Smoothies that are delicious, easy to make and bursting with health benefits.
By now we all know how catching a cold, flu, and other nasty viruses can be prevented with regular hand washing and avoiding contact with those who are infected. We are also told that people with certain chronic health conditions or weak immune system are likely to suffer more severely if they catch the virus.
This isn't surprising - a well-functioning immune system is essential for fighting any type of viral infection. This raises the question, are we able to boost our immunity in some way to build up our resilience to viruses and infections?
Well, the fact is that our immune system is incredibly complex and we can't rally one just one thing thinking we are protected. That said, it definitely makes sense to follow the guidelines for general good health. Getting enough sleep, staying physically active, and eating healthily are pillars of good health. But still there are certain foods that makes our immune system stronger and our health more protected.
Some of the immune-boosting foods are: citrus fruits - grapefruits, oranges, lemons, berries - blueberries, strawberries, and greens - spinach, kale, and broccoli. But also yogurt, almonds, green tea, and herbs and spices, like ginger, turmeric, and cinnamon. But eating just one of these foods won't be enough to help fight off the flu, even if you eat it constantly. Variety is key. And smoothies are the PERFECT way to get a variety of essential nutrients your body needs in a delicious, drinkable form.
