Immune Boosting Smoothie
By Teresa Cutter
What's great about it
Here's a delicious and simple immune-boosting smoothie that I've been making at home over the last few weeks. I'm a huge a fan of ginger and turmeric - the best natural anti-inflammatories you can get. Citrus such as oranges, mandarins, grapefruit, lemons and limes are an excellent source of vitamin C which helps maintain the body’s defence against bacterial infections. Citrus has a unique type of fibre that, appears to dramatically reduce cholesterol. Carrots contain vitamin A precursors called carotenoids (beta carotene) that help promote vision and support a healthy immune system. Ginger is packed with an impressive list of health properties and scientifically shown to have potent antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties. Curcumin is the active ingredient in turmeric, which gives it the distinct and vibrant yellow colouring.
- Combine all the ingredients into a good high performance blender.
- Blend until combined.
- Serve in a large glass and enjoy.
