Flu Shot Juice #juice #healthy #vegan #recipe #dairyfree #sugarfree #glutenfree #plantbased #begoodorganics
Felt a hint of chest cough coming on this morning, so out came a flu shot juice.  Did you know Gubinge and Camu Camu are the two highest sources of vitamin C on the planet? Up to 60x more than Oranges! Now that's a lot of vitamin C.

The orange and the lemon are also high in vitamin C, as well as other phyto-nutrients to boost the immune system.  Carrots are packed with beta-carotene, that turns into vitamin A in the body and can help enhance immunity. The ginger is anti-viral, the garlic and oregano are anti-bacterial, and the turmeric is antimicrobial (an agent that kills microorganisms or inhibits their growth).  Meanwhile the celery and parsley are anti-inflammatory, and add a shot of blood-purifying chlorophyll as well.

Try out this juice to help ward off a flu this season, or just to boost your immunity and natural disease-prevention mechanisms.
