COLD AND ALLERGY PROTECTION JUICE Share | Like | Comment l Repost APPLES: Among the many AMAZING health benefits of the often-overlooked apple, Red apples contain an antioxidant called quercetin. Recent studies have found that quercetin boosts and strengthens your immune system, especially when you're stressed out. This is so important, because a weak immune system makes us vulnerable to both colds AND allergies. Another great benefit? Research has been showing that drinking apple juice could keep Alzheimer’s away and fight the effects of aging on the brain. Apple juice increases the levels of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine which is important for brain function and health. GINGER: Also a powerhouse in the plant food world, ginger has been used for thousands of years as a natural treatment for colds and flu. The University of Maryland Medical Center found that 1-2 tbsp. of freshly shredded ginger root in hot water, or juiced, two to three times a day, is extremely preventive against both colds and flu. Ginger also helps to expand your lungs and loosen up phlegm, which assists people with allergy symptoms. Ginger is strengthening to the immune system, decreases bacterial infections in the stomach, and helps fight a cough and throat irritation. Consuming about a tablespoon or two of ginger DAILY can also help prevent potential risk of a stroke by inhibiting fatty deposits from the arteries. CARROT JUICE: Carrot juice deserves it own post, it truly is the king of juices! Carrot juice is the richest source of vitamin A and a good supply of vitamins B, C, D, E, G, and K, all of which strengthen the immune system. From: RawganicVegan
