Immunity Shot Ingredients and Health Benefits

The phytonutrients in plants are very beneficial. Especially when it comes to helping your body’s natural detoxification systems and boosting your immune system. Here’s how each of the superfoods in these Immunity Shots nourishes, fuels and aids your body to prevent sickness:

  • Grapefruit Juice: Rich in Vitamin C and Vitamin A, two powerful vitamins that benefit immunity.
  • Lemon Juice: A good source of Vitamin C, providing antiviral and antibacterial properties.
  • Orange Juice: Also high in Vitamin C and it’s high in beta-cryptoxanthin, a carotenoid that your body converts into Vitamin A.
  • Ginger Root: Contains gingerol, which can help lower the risk of infections and inhibit the growth of many different types of bacteria. Ginger juice is helps with nausea or upset stomach.
  • Turmeric: Curcumin, the active ingredient in turmeric, is a powerful anti-inflammatory and a very strong antioxidant.
  • Black Pepper: When you add a little black pepper to your turmeric, and you increase the absorption of curcumin by almost 2000%!
  • Garlic: Enhances immune function and it contains sulphur compounds that get into the body through digestion and exert many medicinal effects.

Make a fresh batch of this potent daily immunity shot at least once a week. Have one shot in the morning and another later on to boost your afternoon!


For an added boost of Vitamin C, throw some fresh squeezed organic pineapple juice, or a red pepper and some fresh lime juice for a different flavor.

Reduce Stress to Boost Immunity

Hi Everyone, I’m Heather K. Jones. I’m a dietitian and the nutrition expert for the Skinnytaste cookbooks. I also work with women who struggle with emotional eating. Without the inner tools to stay centered, we can easily become overwhelmed and drained. Then use food in an unconscious attempt to feel safe, to create a false sense of control, or to soothe or suppress uncomfortable emotions.

Plants are your best source of fiber, vitamins and minerals. This super-simple-to-prepare Citrus Immunity Shot from my dietitian friend Danielle Omar, is a delicious way to supplement your day to prevent illnesses, especially during flu season.

Creating soulful, practical routines that support your mental, emotional and physical health will not only naturally boost your immunity and reduce stress eating, it will also re-connect you with the healing and strengthening power of your own heart. You’ll remember just how capable, resilient and powerful you truly are!

Know too that when you take care of yourself and prioritize your health, this also provides you with the energy to support others from a grounded place.
