Orange Turmeric Immunity Booster Shots – Relief For Cold & Cough

Homemade Immunity booster shots…

Winter is in full swing in Canada, this is the time I’ll be seen making homemade immunity boosters & shots that will potentially ward off colds, and coughs & keep me healthy. One of the immunity boosters I’ve been making is with orange & turmeric.

Orange turmeric shots can be a great way to boost your immune system and overall health during the colder months. These shots typically combine the goodness of turmeric with the refreshing citrusy flavor of oranges.

Orange is rich in Vitamin C. Turmeric is the golden spice, and it has amazing medicinal properties anti-inflammatory, antioxidant & anticancer effects.

I’ve also added ginger & lemon. Both ginger & lemon aids digestion & has healing properties. Just before having this, a few pinches of ground black pepper have to be added that’s when the Curcumin in the turmeric will be activated.

The best part is that we can make this & store it in the refrigerator for a couple of days.

Have this immunity booster, stay healthy & enjoy.
