The immune system is a network of cells, tissues and organs that work together to protect your body from illness, infection and disease. This complex system uses different body tissues and chemical reactions to help defend your body from dangerous invaders such as viruses, microbes, bacteria, parasites and free radicals.

When an invader attacks, the immune system triggers different responses and produces antibodies, proteins that are produced by the immune system to help defend your body. After a while, your body learns exactly which antibodies to use for each specific kind of invader, making protecting you much easier.

As the immune system helps to ward off infections and diseases, it plays an essential part in protecting your health. Every injury, illness, or threat to the body requires the immune system in order to heal.

However, sometimes the immune system is not as strong and bacteria and viruses that cause conditions like the cold or the flu are let in. If the immune system is overworked, it can even develop harming conditions such as chronic inflammation and autoimmune disease, which make the body start to attack itself. According to a study published in Nature Reviews Cancer, cancer has also been linked to a compromised immune system.

Living a healthy lifestyle is the KEY to making sure that you keep your immune system intact. By avoiding processed foods and fatty meats and instead including a wide-variety of antioxidant rich-fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds and lean proteins in your diet, you’ll be keeping your defenses up and running at their maximum potential.

Juicing can help you develop a strong immune system by helping provide you with the right combination of vitamins and minerals that can help boost immunity and help reduce inflammation in your body.

Here are 3 juicing recipes that you can add to your diet today

to start helping strengthen your immune system.

Ingredients
  • 1 bunch spinach
  • 1 carrot
  • 1 cup strawberries
  • ½ cup pineapple
Instructions
  1. Process all ingredients through juicer and enjoy!

Why It Works:

  • Spinach and strawberries contain flavonoids – powerful antioxidants that may prevent the DNA damage associated with free radicals. Flavonoids also help to reduce inflammation.
  • Carrots contain high levels of vitamin A, a vitamin that protects the body from infection by producing enzymes and moistening mucous membranes.
  • Pineapple belongs to the bromeliad family and contains the enzyme bromelain, which helps to reduce inflammation.
  • Strawberries and pineapple are also high in vitamin C, which stimulate the production of white blood cells (the cells that help attack the invaders in the body). Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that has also been shown to help stop the formation of free radicals.

What Our Clients Say*

During my FitLife transformation, I lost 70 pounds! That's why I signed up for the protocol, but the most exciting result is that I found ME in the process. I had been hiding under a pile of pounds, self-doubt, and grief! FitLife changed my life and I knew I had to share it with others.

-Lynne, Longwood FL

I started with Fitlife back in 2011-2012…I wrote into Fitlife asking for an extreme amount of help. I was 300 pounds, with high cholesterol, and Drew helped me transform my life. I lost over 130 pounds and I no longer have high cholesterol. Not only did I lose weight, so did my husband, who lost over 70 pounds!
