3 Immunity-Boosting Juices To Combate Coronavirus

As coronavirus spreads, panic spreads. The smell of hand sanitizer is almost anywhere in the world right now. 

According to the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), you can get the virus if you are close to an infected person (within 6 feet) and through respiratory droplets when they cough or sneeze, and not from packages from China. Yet, there are some many updates, advice, cures, and warnings that are causing more harm than good.

Misinformation about the coronavirus has flooded social media. Some believe vitamin C injections can cure the virus while others say that garlic or hot water will do the same. There is currently no widely available treatment for the virus, although at least one experimental drug is being used

As cases of Covid-19 continue to spread across the globe, now is the time to boost your immunity, change your lifestyle, and strengthen your body’s defence mechanism, experts have revealed.

Pharmacies are witnessing a sharp rise in the number of people buying vitamins to strengthen their immune system. However, doctors and experts have warned against the unguided and excessive consumption of such supplements and, instead, encouraged the daily intake of fresh fruits and vegetables. For example, you should increase your intake of berries, ginger, garlic, carrots, eggplant, spinach, green vegetables, pumpkin. All these have some or other components that can boost your immunity.

The following juices are packed with immunity-enhancing nutrients for everyday health, so you can start your mornings off with a refreshing boost to your body’s natural defences.

Apple, Carrot, and Orange

Carrots, apples, and orange are a winning combination for helping your body protect itself and fight off infections. Notable nutrients include vitamins A, B-6, and C, potassium and folic acid.

Beet, Ginger, and Turmeric

Inflammation is often an immune response to infections. It can cause flu or cold symptoms like a runny nose, coughs, and body aches. People who have rheumatoid arthritis may especially benefit from drinking this juice, as the turmeric and ginger have anti-inflammatory effects.

Homemade Tomato Juice

The best way to be sure your tomato juice is fresh is to make it yourself. The best part is that you don’t need a juicer or blender, you can just strain the bits and pieces through a sieve. Tomatoes are rich in vitamins A and C, iron and folate, which help lower your risk of infections. Don’t be afraid to add a shot of vodka and turn it into the ultimate Bloody Mary. You only live once after all!
