Rev Up Your Immune System

Pick up one of these delicious nutritious drinks and give your body a huge boost this winter season.

Here are two no-fail concoctions to rev up your immune system and fight off the season’s attempt to make you sick!

1. A sure-fire way to start each day on the right foot, is to squeeze a lemon, grate some ginger, heat some water and shake some cinnamon… all this adds up to a hefty dose of antioxidants, vitamin C, and immune-boosting compounds.

  1. I make Smoothies often & had forgotten all the years I made a hot lemon & herb drink because I felt sogood drinking them, year round. I do not know how or when or why I stopped making those soothing hot lemony drinks. Thank you for these recipes which stimulated warm feelings and healthy great tastes. georgia
