This is truly the ultimate cold and flu tonic. Combining vitamin C-rich citrus with immune modulating herbs and a little fat to usher in the fat-soluble nutrients makes this a powerful option.
Ingredients are simple enough: turmeric root, ginger, orange and lemon. Put them through the juicer to make a concentrate of sorts. You could absolutely shoot this back as a 1 oz shot, if you're tough or enjoy taking the concentrate, diluting it in a cup of hot water, and then stirring in raw honey and a little ghee or coconut oil.
Drink every two hours alongside a healthy dose of rest and your immune system will be giving you a warm hug of thanks, in the form of health through the holidays!
