Immune Boosting Drink Recipe09/03/2020, Chiva-Som
This delicious immune-boosting drink from Chiva-Som contains a number of healthy ingredients, each with its own health benefits.
Apples and beetroot are high in antioxidants like vitamin C which can help reduce the duration and severity of colds. Beetroot is also a powerful vasodilator which can improve blood flow, reduce blood pressure and improve overall cardiovascular health.
Ginger, while famous for its digestive benefits also contains powerful compounds that can lower inflammation as well as improve anti-oxidant enzyme function in our bodies.
Garlic is the immune superstar in this beverage. By improving the ability of white blood cells to fight invaders and by increasing the production of T cells, garlic can enhance the immune system and thus reduce the risk of colds and other infections.
All of the above are best taken as prevention. The rate of the common cold has been found to be reduced by 60-70% in persons who take garlic daily.
