It’s fall, and in the blink of an eye, it’ll be winter. The seasonal transition has a way of taking toll on the body. Icky airborne illnesses like rhinovirus-- better known as the common cold-- start spreading like wildfire. So what’s one to do to keep the body at optimal health?
I’ve got 2 words for you my friend: cleanse and replenish. The simple act of cleansing your system and restoring vital elements to the body will keep you healthy and help retain that lovely glow you picked up this summer. So here’s a breakdown for how it works:
Cleanse- We might not be aware of it, but we’re constantly being exposed to environmental pollution, bacteria, and viruses that make there way into our bodies. If we don’t periodically cleanse, these foreign germs build up and dwindle our immune systems.
Fresh lemon juice, ginger, and cayenne pepper are great antioxidants. They stimulate blood circulation, which is crucial for removing excess toxins. Not to mention they’re loaded with anti-inflammatory and antiviral properties. So whether you’re already feeling under the weather or you’re bulking up your immunity, these three ingredients will do the trick.
Replenish- Once the system is all cleared out, it’s time to replenish the body with oodles of love (and by love, I mean vitamins and minerals). Nutrient packed fruits and veggies such as pineapples, oranges, and celery hydrate the body and deliver the necessary vitamins and minerals for restoration. Best of all, these living foods stimulate cellular repair, which really comes in handy when you’re suffering from a bug.
Here’s the awesome bonus: Zoe Juice Bars fresh Super C Shot and Flu Fighter juices are made with these very ingredients! So the next time you plan on curling up with a cozy blanket and some Netflix, don’t forget to treat your self with these feel good immunity-boosting drinks. No assembly required.
