It is important for all of us to take good care of our health, especially during this time. The pandemic has everyone jumping on the health bandwagon. People have started living healthier lifestyles to minimize the chances of getting infected by the coronavirus.
According to the World Health Organization (WHO) and medical experts, one of the best ways to fight COVID-19 is to keep your immune system healthy. We have listed below a few immune system-boosting juices that you can easily make at home.
So whip out those measuring jugs and juicers and get on the road to a healthier you.
10 Immune-System Boosting Juices to Keep You Healthy and Strong
Green apple, orange, and carrot
These three ingredients — carrots, oranges, and green apples — make for a winning combination of healthy and delicious. Check out this recipe by The Urban Umbrella.
Grapefruit, orange, and other citrus fruits
Anything that contains large amounts of vitamin C is good for your immune system. This vitamin C-loaded citrus juice gives you more than enough vitamin C intake in a day.
Beet, ginger, apple, and carrot
Decrease inflammatory symptoms and help reinforce your immune system with these root veggies and fruit. The Minimalist Baker shows you how to prepare this healthy treat.
So you want to make juice that doesn’t need any blender or juicer? Just get a few tomatoes from the fridge and strain the bits and pieces and voila! Instant juice that’s rich in vitamin B9.
Tomato, celery, and kale
If you think kale is only found in most green juices, you’ve got another think coming. Tesco has given us a different take on kale juice by adding tomato juice to increase the vitamin A content.
Mango and strawberry
This strawberry-mango delight satisfies your craving and helps keep you healthy. It takes four strawberries to make a cup of juice so it is wise to make this a smoothie.
Kiwi and strawberry
Strawberry and kiwi are both healthy inclusions to a vitamin C-loaded drink. And since you’re using strawberries with this one again, it’s best if you make this into a smoothie instead. Well Plated shows us how to do this right.
Green apple, kale, and lettuce
Trying to get your kids to eat their veggies? Try turning them into a health drink instead like this combination of lettuce, kale, and green apple. This is guaranteed to make your kids ask for their veggies for sure.
Watermelon is a good source of vitamin C and arginine which helps bolster your immune system. Since watermelon has high water content, this juice is a lot easier to prepare compared to the others on this list.
Pumpkin seeds are an awesome source of zinc. Turning these seeds into a drink offers plenty of health benefits such as better bone health, prostate, and urinary health, and better hair and skin among others.
Times like these, we all need to stay healthy and take better care of our immune system. There’s no better way to do so than to enjoy a nice tall glass of a refreshing health drink. Happy juicing!
