Smoothie of the Day: Ginger Orange Immunity-Boosting Smoothie

This is a delicious and simple smoothie to make. It’s a great way to keep your immune system strong, especially during a time where everybody is sick with the cold or flu! The orange gives this smoothie a nice boost of vitamin C. Oranges contain limonoids which are phytochemicals that can have therapeutic effects such as antiviral, antifungal, antibacterial, antieoplastic, and antimalarial. Ginger has been known to boost the immune system as an effective antimicrobial and antiviral agent. I use kefir with this smoothie to give it a nice dose of health-promoting probiotics (aka friendly bacteria). Give this smoothie a try today!
