It’s that time of year when doctors and others promote the idea of getting flu shots. The flu vaccine is targeted to protect you against influenza viruses that are anticipated to hit this year.There are 2 main types of flu vaccines: the injection vaccine containing a killed virus and the nasal spray vaccine containing a live, but weakened virus. With a traditional flu shot, the body produces antibodies against the virus in the original shot.
Many people opt to not get a traditional flu vaccination and choose to strengthen their immune systems I more natural ways. In this article, Kristen shares 6 at-home “flu shots” that are real immune-boosters. They are made with real, healthy foods. There are recipes for:
- Apple Cider Slammer
- Green Machine
- Cod Liver Kiss
- Blueberry Blast
- Carrot Kicker
- Lemon & Ginger Drop
These natural “flu shots” are concentrated and served in shot glasses or other small glasses. They contain antioxidants and nutrients: beta-carotene, magnesium, folate, vitamin B6, vitamin A, Omega-3 fatty acids, phytochemicals, vitamin C, and anti-inflammatories. All of these properties support the immune system. Since each drink contains different properties, one strategy is to drink a different “flu shot” each day.
