The immune system is constantly active, trying to figure out which cells belong to your body and which don’t. This means that the immune system needs a healthy dose of vitamins and minerals to keep its energy up and working.
We all want to make your immune system stronger, but do we actually know what it requires? It would not be easy to fully explain this amazing and complex part of the body, so to put it plainly, the immune system is an amazing array of biological structures and processes that function together in a coordinated manner to protect against disease.
It includes the thymus, bone marrow, lymphoid tissues and organs, and a number of cells that get dispatched to fend off invaders.
Without the immune system, we would not have made much past the first few days of our life. To keep this amazing, often overlooked part of your body up and working strong, try making this delicious fruity drink and enjoying it daily.
How to Make Drink to Boost the Immune System
You will need:
- ½ cup 1 inch cubed watermelon and
- ½ cup 1 inch cubed cantaloupe.
- ¼ cup apple, cut into smallish chunks and
- 2 cups of organic carrot juice.
Slice ½ cup each of watermelon and cantaloupe into 1-inch cubes. Cut up an apple into chunks, and toss all your fruit in the blender.
Add 2 cups of organic carrot juice, and mix until desired consistency has been reached. More juice will make it thinner, while less will yield a thicker mix and enjoy 1-2 times every day.
Drink Health Constituent
This drink is rich in antioxidants and amino acids, and drinking it daily will serve a couple of benefits. Apple is packed with antioxidant and this helps rid the body of free-radicals (this can damage the immune system).
The melon and carrot juice are chock-full of amino acids, which are vital in triggering the response of our T cells to rid our body of invaders.
Many products hold claim to literally boosting the immune system, but there really isn’t any proof that there is a simple way to do so. The immune system, as the word implies, a system needs balance to function well, and when cells drop below a certain level, we know we get sick.
But what we don’t know is what happens when there are more cells added. Some claims seem rather pointless because there aren’t really any ways to “produce” more immune system cells, and you don’t want to be pumping your body full of extra cells anyways unless you’re its lacking in your system. The body knows what it’s doing, what you just need is to maintain it.
Making juices, smoothies, and nutritional drinks are one of the juicier ways to stay healthy. But no matter what juice you like, you can always add other important foods such as chia seeds and wheat germ for more health benefits.
Other means to keep your immune system strong include practicing good hygiene, staying hydrated, and exercising regularly.
