Cranberry Orange Immunity Boost (AIP, Paleo, Plant-Based)
Is your immune system in need of a boost? This Cranberry Orange Immunity Boost is the perfect drink to support a strong immune system during cold and flu season (and all year round). Loaded with whole food forms of vitamin C, antioxidants, anti-inflammatories, PLUS antibacterial & antiviral properties.
Most people turn straight to vitamin C after they’ve caught a cold. That’s because it helps build up your immune system. Vitamin C, which is found in oranges, is thought to increase the production of white blood cells, which are key to fighting infections.
Cranberries are another source of vitamin C, plus vitamins K, A and strong antioxidants. These all work to boost the immune system, working against cardiovascular disease and inflammation.
Additionally, ginger is another great ingredient that may help decrease inflammation, which can help reduce a sore throat and inflammatory illnesses.
Check out what one of my followers had to say about this immune system booster:
“Thank you for this recipe Jennifer. It was my go to drink during chemotherapy. When my white blood cell count was low and the docs told me I may not be able to do chemo, I started to drink this and boom – my WBC count went up and I was able to do the next round of chemo. I never missed a round of chemo with this drink. Thank you for this.” – Carla
