Strengthening our immune systems has become one of our top priorities for 2020. When we eat nutrient-rich foods and utilize supplements to help fill in the gaps, we are giving our natural defenses a boost that can help lessen the chances of becoming sick.
This simple and delicious smoothie recipe contains vital nutrients that can help give your immune system the extra boost it may need to help stay healthy.
Why This Smoothie Is Oh-So Good
Fruits like lemons, kiwis, pineapple, and mango are packed with Vitamin C. This essential nutrient is known for its antioxidant properties that both enhances immune health and aids in antiviral and antibacterial protection.
Spinach is also rich in Vitamin C, numerous antioxidants, and beta carotene— which your body turns into Vitamin A in order to keep your eyes and skin healthy. This special combination of antioxidant and beta carotene helps the body ward off any potential invaders.
Those aren’t the only antioxidants here. The grated ginger offers strong anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects that helps to support a healthy immune system while adding a kick to your smoothie. It’s also a natural way to sooth an upset stomach and help in occasional digestion troubles. And don’t forget, over 70% of immune health starts in the gut!
Almond Milk contains important vitamins like A, D, and E, and gives your body the other recommended nutrients it needs to function properly. Additionally, it provides vitamin B and iron, which increases muscle strength and recovery.
Last but not least, Aloe vera juice is a great source for strengthened immune health. Lily of the Desert’s aloe juice contains 200 biologically active compounds, meaning it works to give your body everything it needs to thrive in only a few ounces at a time. Our aloe helps increase nutrient levels by increasing the rate of absorption your body naturally undergoes by over 2000%.
And that’s not even the half of it! When enhanced with our patent-pending Aloesorb, taking Lily of the Desert aloe juice daily is clinically proven to increase to your white blood cell counts by 16%. That allows for even more protection for a strong and healthy immune system.
