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.
