It's definitely not just your imagination: The flu is especially bad this year. Besides getting a flu shot and staying away from your sick co-workers, what can you do to help your body resist influenza?
One solution is to eat and drink foods that strengthen your body's natural defenses — like this Ginger-Turmeric Immunity Shot. The powerful liquid features turmeric and ginger, which have anti-inflammatory and immune-boosting properties, along with vitamin C-rich tangerine and carrot juice.
Why did we decide to put black pepper in the mix? Combining turmeric with black pepper makes it easier for your body to absorb. And if you're thinking about skipping the apple cider vinegar, know that vinegar contains acetic acid, which works to kill germs.
With only eight grams of natural sugar and 13 grams of carbohydrates, this immunity-boosting shot is a morning ritual you can feel very good about. Here's to hoping you get through this year's flu season unscathed!
