Do you get every cold that goes around? Are you tired of being sick? It sounds like your immune system needs a little support. Well, you are in luck because
many common foods contain compounds that naturally boost your immune system. In fact, look no further than your kitchen for this elixir!
We will be using apple cider vinegar to extract the beneficial compounds from onions, garlic, horseradish, turmeric and cayenne. Onions contain quercetin, which is an antioxidant compound. It protects our DNA from damage, stabilizes mast cells, and can prevent viral replication. Garlic contains allicin, which stimulates the production of immune cells to fight viruses and also may directly damage viral cells. Turmeric contains many different compounds that have antioxidant effects and modulate the function of our immune system. Horseradish and cayenne stimulate blood flow to promote the circulation of our immune cells. Together, these ingredients have a synergistic immune boosting effect.View Recipe >
