Do you need a little natural way to boost your immune system? Then you definitely need to try this anti flu shot.
If you’re like me, then you hate being sick and you will do whatever it takes to avoid it. There’s nothing worse than having to put your entire life on hold just becaus eyou haven’t been taking proper care of yourself – we’ve all been there more than once.
I think it’s always better to prevent than to treat – of course it’s impossible never to succumb to the flu once in a while – but it’s definitely possible to keep it at a minimum.
This Anti Flu shot is a small and very concentrated drink, that will give you a quick boost. It’s loaded with everything your immune system needs to stay strong – but it also has a pretty intense flavor that packs it’s own punch.
This anti flu shor is filled with apple, ginger and mint – it not only has a soothening effect on athritis and nausea, but ginger is also known to have cholesterol lowering effects and a positive influence on your digestion.
Lemon is known to be very detoxing as well as stimulating both your metabolism and digestion. Another great part of this shot is the mints antibacterial properties – fresh mint is proven to be a bacteria killer and fights virus in our bodies.
Do you have inflammation in your body?
Inflammation in our body increases the bodys stress levels and that in turn increases the longtime stress hormone cortisol.
Cortisol actually increases our bloodsugar levels with up to 50% – that increasing bloodsugar in turn increases the release of insuling, which further increases inflammation, which then increases more cortisol – it’s a negative cycle that can be pretty serious to our overall health.
Symptoms of inflammation:
- Lack of energy
- Overweight and not being able to lose weight
- Depression (Inflammation inhibits the production of the happiness hormone Serotonin)
- Increased muscle soreness after workouts
- Tenderness in the fat filled areas of your body
- Sore/aching joints
If you really want to boost your metabolism big time, you can add the lemon peel as well as the juice (from clean organic lemons, of course).
There’s so much extra goodness in the peel, that has amazing flu fighting properties – it does have a very intense and slightly bitter taste that takes some getting used to, though. Whenever I feel something coming on, I always add the peel to help fight it off – and it usually works.
