Your immune system is your body’s natural defense system so it is critical that it be functioning at it is very best to ensure that your health is protected. Your immune system is an intricate system of the interdependent network of cells, tissues, and organs that work in concert together to defend your body against unwelcomed foreign invaders such as toxins, bacteria, viruses etc.
Eating a healthy diet is a great way to naturally and gently nurse your immune system back to health or give it that boost that it needs every day, not just from time to time. Juicing and adding healthy smoothies to your daily diet is a very easy and great way to ingest nutrients from food that are beneficial for your immune system health. It is definitely easier to drink your fruits and vegetables than to chow down a big bowl of salad, isn’t it? Moreover, when nutrients are extracted into liquid form, it becomes easier for your body to digest, absorb and use.

For a little natural sweetness without losing any nutritional ground, I have added a healthy red apple. Feel free to switch it up with a green tart apple if that is what your preferred flavor profile.
