Y our immune system is constantly active, figuring out which cells belong to your body and which don’t. Immunity booster drinks are required to replenish the energy. This means it needs a healthy dose of vitamins and minerals to keep its energy up and going. Juice makes your immune system strong. Health is wealth and healthy eating is the secret to long life. In the summer season, we should focus more on drinking(healthy summer drinks) like Amla juice, watermelon juice etc and less on eating. Due to hot temperature and humid weather, our body loses out on hydration which can cause dehydration and various other health issues.
Immunity booster drinks during the times of grave infections and seasonal flus is of utmost importance. With the outbreak of corona virus all across the globe and the change in season, the importance of immunity has been stressed upon once again.
Apart from social distancing, your first and immediate line of defence in these COVID-19 times is your immune system.
