What makes a good immune boosting smoothie? 💪
Antioxidants and vitamins are two of the most important nutrients for the immune system. They help to fight off threats such as viruses and harmful bacteria, as well as boosting immune function at the same time.
Fruit and vegetables are two of the best sources of antioxidants and vitamins, where they are found in abundance. Ginger is also renowned for its impact on the immune system as it has potent antiviral and antibacterial properties. Adding these to your smoothies is a great way to support your immune system from within.
We also add Berry Beauty to this recipe, which harnesses the goodness of 8 superfood ingredients to provide a potent source of antioxidants. As the name suggests, Berry Beauty also helps to support healthy hair, skin and nails 🙌
