Immunity Boosting Blend
Yogurt has probiotics which keep the good bacteria in your intestines flourishing.
This is important because the intestinal tract is a main component of your body’s immune system. Strawberries are very high in vitamin C, a known immunity booster. Limes also have vitamin C and the acid from their juice helps the stomach break down food. Certain flavanoids in limes help detox the body and act as anti-bacterial agents. In some countries limes are used as a natural antibiotic. The carrot juice (or orange juice) provides beta-carotene which also helps boost immunity. If your strawberries aren’t particularly sweet, add a teaspoon or two of honey—another of nature’s antimicrobial wonders.
