Autumn is notorious for colds and flu. As the days get colder and darker, we may feel tired and run down. Therefore it’s critical to support our body with nourishing foods during this seasonal change to fight fatigue and fend off colds...

 

1. Include foods high in Vitamin A

Carrot, orange, apple, ginger

Carrots are especially rich in beta-carotene the precursor to vitamin A. This nutrient plays a key role with supporting our body’s mucous membranes which line the respiratory and intestinal tracts, making it harder for bacteria to enter into the bloodstream and cause infection.

 

2. Glow from within with Vitamin C

Apple, banana, orange, avocado, lemon, ginger, turmeric, black pepper, cayenne pepper

A super source of vitamin C to support the normal function of the immune system and fight tiredness and fatigue. This antioxidant-rich smoothie also comes with ginger, turmeric and cayenne pepper a combo which has been traditionally used as an immunity remedy.
 

3. Look after your gut health

Water, lemon, agave syrup, strawberry, dragon fruit, probiotics 

Did you know that 70% of our immune system lies within the gut, and our gut bacteria may influence immune function. This refreshing hydrater contains a specific probiotic strain called B. coagulans which has been researched in relation to stimulating the immune system and playing a role in preventing respiratory tract infections (coughs and colds).


4. Protect yourself against the sniffles with ginger & garlic
