The quality of your immune system should always be a priority. While moving through an average day, you come into contact with countless bacteria, viruses, microbes, and toxins that can wreak havoc on your immune system. When this constant barrage of environmental and physiological assailants weakens the immune system, the physical results can range from a lack of energy or a simple stuffy nose to far more serious conditions, such as chronic illness. By maintaining a healthy immune system, you can ensure that your body’s cells, organs, and systems remain functional and strong. With a special focus on the gut, where between 70 and 80 percent of the immune system’s tissue is located, apple cider vinegar’s assistance in fighting harmful bacteria and promoting probiotic health greatly benefits the immune system. In addition, the enzymes and nutrients in apple cider vinegar help protect against microbes, bacteria, and viruses. By adding nutrient-dense fruits, vegetables, and other culinary additions to ACV you can create immunity-boosting smoothies, tonics, and drinks that make staying healthy an enjoyable endeavor!

Lots of Lemon

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 2 cups low-fat vanilla Greek yogurt
  • 3 medium lemons, peeled and de- seeded
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1 cup ice

Serves: 2

Directions

  1. Combine all the ingredients in a large blender.
  2. Blend the ingredients on high until thoroughly combined and frothy.
  3. Consume immediately or store tightly sealed and refrigerated up to 4 hours.

Known for their high amounts of vitamin C, lemons make a nutritious addition to your apple cider vinegar drinks any time of year, and especially during the notorious flu season. Helping to support the immune system’s functioning, the lemon’s vitamins, minerals, and potent antioxidants can also soothe sore throats, calm respiratory illnesses, and fend off viruses, bacterial infections, and microbes that can wreak havoc on the body. When combined with ACV’s naturally occurring enzymes, collectively known as the “mother,” lemons and other immunity-boosting ingredients can be blended into a delicious and nutritious drink that protects cells and promotes overall health and well-being. When taken at the first sign of symptoms, such as a stuffy nose, a sore throat, or fatigue, this simple drink can help you avoid developing a serious immune system–draining illness.
