If you’re prone to “spring allergies”, build up your immune system before spring comes around.
Drink juices that are HIGH in vitamin C, a very important antioxidant to strengthen your immune system, and keep your lungs clear of pollen and other infections.
This juice is also helpful for people living in polluted cities and who are constantly exposed to air pollution.
Suggested Juice Recipe (makes one portion):
- 3 or 4 oranges
- 1/4 lemon
- 1 teaspoon ginger root juice
Other helpful suggestions for protecting your respiratory system:
- Stay hydrated. Very, very important. Drink more than your usual amount of water.
- EAT lots of fruits – citrus fruits, cantaloupe, guava, watermelon, mangoes, papaya, persimmons, pomegranate, tomatoes, etc.
- Drink one or two glasses of fresh juices daily. Choose fruits that are red-yellow-orange in color as they’re highest in vitamin C and antioxidants. GREEN juices are helpful too.
- If you don’t drink juices, supplement with high-quality vitamin C that contains bioflavonoids. You can get this from GNC. At least 1000mg for adult and half dosage for children
- Taking one or two courses of probiotics besides drinking juices, is important to improve and strengthen your respiratory system.
