Daily Drink to “Boost” Your Immune System

“An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure”
-Benjamin Franklin

You know that you want to make your immune system stronger, but do you actually know what it is? It would be impossible to fully explain this amazing and complex part of the body, so to put it very simply, the immune system is an incredible array of biological structures and processes that work together in a coordinated manner to protect against disease. It includes the thymus, bone marrow, lymphoid tissues and organs, and a variety of cells that get dispatched to fight off invaders. Without our immune system, we would not have made much past the first days of our existence. To keep this awesome, often overlooked part of your body up and going strong, try making this tasty fruity drink and enjoying it daily.

Carrot Immunity Smoothie- to "boost" your immune system.

You will need…

-½ cup 1 inch cubed watermelon
-½ cup 1 inch cubed cantaloupe
-¼ cup apple, cut into smallish chunks
-2 cups of organic carrot juice

Directions

Chop ½ cup each of watermelon and cantaloupe into 1 inch cubes. Slice up an apple into chunks, and toss all your fruit in the blender. Add 2 cups of organic carrot juice, and blend until desired consistency has been reached. More juice will make it thinner, while less will yield a thicker blend. Enjoy 1-2 times daily.

What does this drink do exactly?

This drink is rich in antioxidants and amino acids, and enjoying it daily will serve a couple of benefits. The apple is packed with antioxidants, which help rid your body of free-radicals-free radicals can damage the immune system. The melon and carrot juice are chock full of amino acids, which are needed to trigger the response of our T cells to rid our body of invaders.


Many products claim to literally boost your immune system, but there really isn’t any evidence that there is a simple way to do so. What would that boost be anyways? Think about it-the immune system is just that, a system. It needs balance to function well, and when cells drop below a certain level, we know we get sick. But we don’t know what happens when there are more cells added. Some claims seem rather silly because there aren’t really any ways to “make” more immune system cells at home, and you don’t want to be pumping your body full of extra cells anyways, unless you’re deficient. The body knows what it’s doing; you just need to maintain it.

    I’m assuming that the recipe given is for one serving? If not how many servings and how long will it keep in fridge? Can it be stored in freezer?

    • Claire (Everyday Roots) says:

      Yes, this is one serving, but it could be split into 2 smaller ones if you really wanted to. It will keep for 5 days up to a week in the fridge. I haven’t tried freezing it yet, but I don’t see why you couldn’t!

    What can I drink to fight endomitriosis?

    • Brandi says:

      I have had surgery after surgery for endo. 8 total. my last one was in sept 2012. the first 7 surgeries were done with laproscopic ablation. this last one was done at the center for endometriosis in Georgia with laproscopic ***excision*** there is a huge difference in technique. the excision has proven to be much more effective for me than ablation. there are experts out there so don’t let a doctor tell you there isn’t. also don’t let them tell you a hysterectomy will fix the problem…I had three more surgeries after my full hysterectomy within a year.

      I have a cinnamon/plumb tea that seemed to help. also, for some weird reason, raw onions provided relief faster than some medicine – my first doctor looked at me funny when I told him that.

      Just thought i’d throw that out there.

  3. Cheryl in Texas says:

    I can’t eat cantaloupe…any alternatives?

    • Nancy Denlinger says:

      This is what I take and it has proven to be helpful to me. Most diseases are caused by inflammation and i26 reduces inflammation and keeps the body healthy by balancing the immune system. I’ve been using this product for over 10 years.

    Any ideas of how to get rid of Fibroids

  10. Jennifer says:

    Or you can eat a couple cloves of raw garlic a day(mince and let sit for 10 minutes to activate). It is an immune system booster and a broad spectrum anti-biotic. A tea of ginger, raw honey, and fresh lemon juice is useful for colds too.

  11. Gigi says:

    Can I put this a juicer instead of a blender?

  12. floriv says:

    What about a pear instead of an apple? A peach, nectarine or plums instead of
    cantaloupe? They all sound good to me.

  13. Cyndi Bludnick says:

    Good Morning,
    I am allergic to melons, so I can’t do the watermelon or cantaloupe, any thing I can substitute? I am allergic to all the melons, peaches, pears, plums and apricots. Would love to try an immune booster since I am battling my 2nd cold this winter, so I do need some help.
    Thank you
