Support your immune system with this antioxidant shot

Sue Bedford (MSc Nutritional Therapy)

We love these super healthy and fertility friendly shots. Do let us know if you are making them, and if they are making a difference! 

Kiwi Fruit – these small but powerful little green fruits pack a great nutritional punch! Kiwi Fruit contain one of the highest vitamin C content of any fruit.  Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant. Antioxidants play a key role in keeping our bodies energized, cleansed and invigorated. From vitamin C and E to folate, kiwifruit has it all — and then some! They also contain a good amount of fibre too.

Apples- help support the immune system too as they are also rich in vitamin C, antioxidants and contain many plant compounds including Quercetin. They have a low Glycemic load so release sugar slowly into the blood – good for balancing hormones, watching their weight and for those with PCOS (Poly Cystic Ovary Syndrome).

Blueberries are amazing! They are rich in Anthocyanins, a powerful antioxidant, are low in fat, packed with vitamin C and are a good source of fibre.

Ginger contains antibacterial properties along with anti-inflammatory compounds.

All of these ingredients combined together pack a great nutritional punch that not only provides us with important antioxidants, they are also great for the skin and provide support to the immune system too.

Ingredients (makes 1 shot)

2 apples of your choice to juice or 100ml fresh Apple Juice

1 kiwi fruit (skin removed)

100g Blueberries

½ an inch of Fresh Ginger

Method

Juice and blend. Pour into a shot glass in the morning and enjoy.  If you are busy why not double up the ingredients to make enough for a couple of mornings- cover and keep in the fridge.

Enjoy!
