Top 4 Immunity Boosting Drinks In Times Of COVID-19

With the Covid-19 pandemic spreading in India and across the world, we have certainly learnt to take external precautions and measures like wearing masks, maintaining social distancing, sanitizing our hands regularly. But rarely do we pay attention to what we are putting inside our body.

The current situation is a big reminder for all of us, that whether it’s a pandemic like such, a seasonal flu or a disease, the way to fight the above is by boosting your immunity. As building immunity helps in preventing and fighting diseases. Proper hydration and consumption of immunity boosting drinks is one of the most effective ways and easiest ways to boost the immune system. Hence, here are our top 4 quick, easy, and super healthy juice recipes, made with basic 3-4 ingredients which contain immunity boosting properties, and are readily available in most Indian households considering the current lockdown situation.

Turmeric Milk: Call it golden milk, turmeric latte or simply, haldi doodh but turmeric milk is a very healthy drink known for its antioxidant, medicinal, and anti-inflammatory properties.  Tumeric, is an essential spice found in all Indian homes. Loaded with an active compound called curcumin, turmeric is said to contain immunity boosting properties and natural killer cells that can help contain viral infections. Combined with milk, which is a rich source of protein it can go a long way in maintaining a healthy immune system and keeping the diseases away. You can also add a dash of grated ginger to this potion of goodness and enjoy it warm.

Amla and Mint juice: Amla (Indian gooseberry) has versatile uses – from being part of murabba (sweet fruit preserve) to being used on scalp to nourish tresses. An easy way to include this sour-bitter fruit in your diet is to have it as juice flavoured with fresh pudina (mint) and dhania (coriander) leaves. Rich in Vitamin C, copper and other nutrients, amla helps strengthen the nervous system and increase the white blood cell count that is essential to fight diseases. Mint and coriander are also packed with anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties that are immunity boosters. It’s ideal to enjoy this juice as a morning ritual.

Honey-Lemon Shot: Who said you could only have boozy shots? A booster shot of honey and lemon once in a day is perfect for anyone, especially those who may not have the time to dilute this into honey-lime water. Often used as natural sweetener, honey is a powerhouse of nutrients. Research suggests that it can help soothe sore throats, wounds, ulcer and treat digestive issues. Its antioxidants help protect the body from cell damage. High in vitamin C, lemon is also a great immunity-booster food that aids digestion too.

Apple Beet Ginger juice: We’ve all heard of the old adage, ‘an apple a day keeps a doctor away’. That’s because apples are packed with vitamins, flavonoids and minerals that are said to help lower the risks of type-2 diabetes, heart disease and regulate our body’s immune system. The vitamin C in beetroot helps the body absorb iron better and heals wounds. Ginger also has immunity-boosting benefits. Its strong antioxidant and anti-bacterial properties are also considered to help fight fever and aid digestion. Including this beautiful, mauve-hued drink in your diet will not only keep you healthy but also add some cheery colour to your day.

While the medical experts are working to find a cure and develop a vaccine, it’s important, that we as individuals are maintaining a healthy diet to boost our immunity levels. And these easy-to-whip-up drinks are the best way to do that.

**No diet or lifestyle modification – aside from physical distancing, and practicing proper hygiene – can protect you from developing COVID-19. The strategies outlined above may boost your immune health, but they don’t protect specifically against COVID-19.

Dairy is a ubiquitous part of food life, ever-present in both foodservice and packaged goods, whether as an end product (such as milk or yogurt) or as a critical input for various cuisines. Given its intrinsic presence, dairy is a microcosm of the food industry, with a barrage of product and prepackaged derivates available flooding the market today.
