Take care of your immune system with this delicious and easy to make syrup. You’ll get sick less and be able to fight off colds much more efficiently. Just keep in mind that a mere syrup can’t perform magic. So, you also need to clean your diet in order to support the healing and trigger the immune response. You can do that by:
- minimizing added sugars in your diet
- reducing or eliminating processed foods (packaged, refined, ready-made, fried)
- eliminating artificial sweeteners
- limiting the consumption of animal products, especially dairy which is highly inflammatory
- increasing the consumption of fresh fruits, vegetables
- consuming more roots/tubers, legumes, and whole grains
- adding in nutrients through various nuts and seeds
- drinking more water and teas
Include the immunity boost syrup in your diet for 1-2 weeks. Drink it in the morning, mixed with water or as is. You can repeat after a few months, every season or twice a year, depending on how often you get sick. This is an immunity syrup that boosts the content of vitamins and minerals in your diet. It should be consumed with prevention in mind. But you can also take it during a cold to speed up recovery.
