Immune Boosting Protein Smoothie
By Teresa Cutter
What's great about it
To have a strong immune system your body needs a daily supply of quality protein. Studies have shown that a deficiency in high-quality protein can result in depletion of 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, which are 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 to protect cells and assist in healing. Studies show the use of vitamin C can reduce the duration and symptoms of colds and respiratory tract infections.
