Citrus-Ginger Immunity Shots
This immunity shot recipe can be easily whipped up in a blender—no juicer required! Ginger contains antiviral and antioxidant compounds that can help fight influenza viruses and RSV; the citrus fruits provide vitamin C, which balances the inflammatory response, and bioflavonoids, which have antiviral and antioxidant functions. Curcumin, an active compound in turmeric, can inactivate Influenza A and inhibit viral replication, as well as reduce the oxidative stressed caused by the virus. Make a double batch of these immunity shots, pour them into small mason jars, cover with a lid, and keep in your fridge for a few days and drink as needed to support your immune system during cold and flu season!
