Immune-boosting Protein Smoothie
By Teresa Cutter
What's great about it
For a robust immune system, your body needs a daily supply of quality protein. Studies have shown that a deficiency in high-quality protein can deplete immune cells, the inability of the body to make antibodies, and other immune-related problems.
Oranges + bananas are jam-packed with B group vitamins, including thiamine (B1) and B6, vital for energy, a healthy metabolism and nerve function. Oranges are also rich in Vitamin C, which acts like your immune-boosting personal bodyguard, helping protect cells and healing. Studies show that vitamin C can reduce the duration and symptoms of colds and respiratory tract infections.
