Fresh juices

We’re sure you’re like everyone else this flu season and can’t afford to get sick. Here are two immunity boost juice recipes to help keep the doctor away and keep you healthy. The following recipes are simple and easy to make. If you don’t have a juicer we’ve even provided a link to some of the best juicers on the market.

The first recipe can boost your immune system’s fighting power. The second can help you fight the flu if you already have it while giving your immune system a boost. You can enjoy these juices as much or as little as you want. You can drink one everyday or up to three times a day depending on if you are sick or just improving your immune system. Remember, listen to your body. If you are juicing often and your body is sending you signals to slow down your intake, do it.
