Ingredients (serves 1)
2 cups raw spinach, washed

Spinach is rich in vitamin C and full of numerous antioxidants and beta carotene, which may increase the infection-fighting ability of the immune system. Celery fills the body with antioxidants and helps to fight infections with its antimicrobial properties. Oranges are well known for their high vitamin C content but also contain vitamin D and A, which helps to reduce inflammation and aids the immune system. Ginger is also known for its anti-inflammatory properties and helps to improve brain function.
Combined, these ingredients pack a huge immune-boosting punch in a tasty and easy-to-consume way.
