The immune system is the body's incredible defense network against infections, viruses, and bacteria that enter the body. The stronger your immune system is, the less chance you have of getting sick and the faster you can recover if you do. A diet rich in fruits and vegetables containing immune-boosting antioxidants and vitamins will help you achieve a healthy immune system with all-natural, plant-powered ingredients.

If you are looking for natural ingredients to help you to boost your immune system see these six amazing ingredients, they will help you to fight off stubborn colds and flus.


This all-natural superfood is the ultimate in immune boosting and detoxifying properties. Adding just a ¼-½ inch chunk of fresh ginger to your green smoothies has amazing health benefits. A little goes a long way so if you’re not used to using fresh ginger, start off small and add more. If you’re feeling a sniffle or cold coming on, then ginger will help kick that cold to the curb just a bit faster.

Citrus Fruits:

As we know they are extremely high in vitamin C, doctors suggest to consume citrus fruits during the winter months–when they are inexpensive and widely available– to boost your immune system and help clear out any cold/flu viruses quickly. An easy way to do this is by using freshly squeeze orange juice as your green smoothie base, or squeeze the juice from half a lemon/lime to get a punch of vitamin C.


Berries contain tons of immune-boosting nutrients: vitamin C, fiber and natural energy for the whole day. And more, they taste fabulous and are available mostly year round (sometimes in the freezer section during the winter months).

 Leafy Greens:

Leafy greens are the powerhouse nutrition for vitamins A and C, as well as protein, fiber and calcium. They have a deep detox action and help clear out any toxins, leaving your body able to push past a cold and flu fast without relying on unnatural cough and cold syrups.


Loaded with vitamin C and fiber, kiwis are available during the winter months. If you can’t find berries or oranges, reach for the kiwi. Did you know one kiwi has more Vitamin C than an orange and the skin is completely edible? Yep. Just scrub it with a veggie brush to get it nice and clean, and eat away (if you can handle it!). Or toss it into your blender for an extra boost of fiber and nutrition.


These crunchy beauties are loaded with fiber and vitamin C to boost your immune system and give you natural energy for the whole day. An apple a day does keep the doctor (and your cold) away.

 Just remember to Keep a few of these fruits and veggies on hand in your kitchen, especially during spring times, when weather changes and temperatures can damage your immune system.

Last but not less important: add to your daily smoothie natural Vitamines, I would suggest to add 70 ml of Olive Leaf Extract, it will give to your smoothie a natural flavor and a huge dose of Antioxidants and Polyphenols.
