Mango Ginger Immune Support ingredients to boost immune system

Getting sick is no fun at all. It can mean missing work or activities, plus who wants to feel yucky anyway? Not us!

If we can sip up some immune-boosting, leafy green goodness to ward off illness, we’re on board 100%!

 

4 ingredients to boost immune system

GINGER: Did you know that ginger clears sinuses and soothes a sensitive stomach? We include ginger in some of our favorite home remedies for cold and flu for that very reason. Plus, you gotta love that ginger kick!

PARSLEY Parsley supports kidney function by flushing out excess fluid from the body – fresh lemon juice helps with this, too. It is totally LOADED with vitamin K – 1/2 cup is more than 500% the daily value. Whoa! And it also contains 55% (in 1/2 cup) of vitamin C. We all know how important vitamin C is for keeping our immune systems in tip-top shape. The volatile oils and flavonoids in parsley have also been shown to be powerful antioxidants and may even fight the formation of tumors. (source)

CUCUMBER + CELERY: Cucumber and celery add even more vitamin K, which is good for blood clotting, and add an extra punch of refreshing flavor. Plus they are very hydrating and contain lots of dietary fiber and natural sodium.

    I have been feeling under the weather and my daughter has shared pink eye with me So come Monday morning I am looking to boost immunity and detox some of my symptoms! I was missing cucumber but this recipe still tastes very fresh and the texture is light and creamy. I will make it again tomorrow with cucumber. I hope I can shake some of these bugs in my system!

    For this and all other smoothies, are you supposed to peal the kiwi and mango and all other fruits??

    Hi Nick,

    Great questions! The peels of fruits offer some major nutrients and are a great option to include in your green smoothie. Here are just a few tips on blending kiwi and mango…

    While kiwi peels are high in vitamin C, fiber, and cancer-fighting antioxidants, as well as, anti-inflammatory and anti-allergenic properties, it can be tart. So we suggest starting with a small amount.

    When blending the mango skin we suggest selecting your fruit when the fruit is ripe and the skin is at its thinnest. While the mango skin is packed with nutrients, those sensitive to poison ivy or poison oak should avoid eating the skin due to a potential allergic reaction known as “mango itch”. 


    Hope this helps!

    Do you have to peel the ginger root?

    Hi Frances,

    My favorite way to peel ginger root is to use the edge of a spoon. Simply run your spoon along the root to remove the exterior. Also, a veggie peeler works too!

    Hello Rawkstar,

    My questions is how do you know when you have the right texture when making smoothies. I always feel like I am over doing them and they get to soft and mushy. I really want to start doing more smoothies for the week do you have more receipts.

    Hi Maria,

    When blending green smoothies we suggest blending your leafy greens + liquid base first, until your greens resemble a juice consistency. Then add your fruit + veggies. Make sure one of your ingredients are frozen to ensure everything is creamy + chilled to perfection.

    Hope that helps!
