Citrus, Ginger, Turmeric, and ACV Juice for Immunity

posted by Nancy Nelson

It’s been a crazy month for my family. It seems like every other day someone is fighting another kind of sickness. It started with the stomach bug, transitioned to general congestion, colds, and now strep throat. I love home remedies so I have been chugging this immunity juice for weeks now – and it’s delicious. When it comes to staying healthy, one important concept to grasp is to “keep it fresh”. The more fresh fruits and vegetables (organic, if possible) you eat – the better your body is able to function, fight off disease and combat whatever is “going around”.

Immunity Juice Ingredients

A little about the ingredients in this juice…

Roots like ginger and turmeric are a wonderful addition to any diet. Ginger is known to help respiratory and cold-related symptoms. Learn about 13 proven health benefits of ginger here. Turmeric is a huge anti-inflammatory agent as well as a potent antioxidant. Citrus fruits give the body a nice boost of Vitamin C, which is the old classic for treating the common cold. Apples contain quercetin which is known to help your immune system stay protected from threats of sickness. Apple Cider Vinegar (also referred to as ACV) contains a strong force of probiotics which help to rid the body of disease-causing bacteria and enhance the community of necessary and good bacteria in the GI tract. 1/2 teaspoon apple cider vinegar per cup1/4 teaspoon turmeric
