7 Smoothies to Boost Your Immune System
Try one of the following immune-boosting smoothies when you feel a cold approaching. Better yet, try one tomorrow and do everything you can to keep yourself healthy!
The soluble fiber found in fresh pear and oatmeal helps regulate your digestive system. They also have anti-inflammatory properties, which help your body fight off and recover faster from infections. 
Honey, ginger, and kefir all have antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties, which help keep unfriendly bacteria at bay and your immune system working properly.
Consuming a variety of colorful fruits and berries helps to ensure you get plenty of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants in your diet. Beets are especially helpful as they contain properties that help prevent chronic inflammation, which can erode immune function. Plus, they’re delicious!
Spinach contains high levels of vitamin C, which helps your body fight off infection. It’s also high in protein (by volume) and contains tons of other antioxidants that support overall health.
Like spinach, colorful berries also contain high levels of antioxidants and vitamin C.
Fun fact: a one-cup serving of pumpkin contains 197% of the recommended daily amount of vitamin A. (Noticing a trend? Vitamin A = immune support.) It also contains iron, which helps keep the immune system functioning properly.
Kale gives you a hearty supply of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals, especially vitamins C and K. Vitamin K helps support your liver and kidneys, which flush toxins out of the body.
