Keep Your Immunity in Check with a Homemade Citrus Immunity Shot

With the pandemic, many people are becoming more attuned to their health and wellness. Some of us may have even begun this journey of nutrition and fitness well before COVID-19 reared its ugly head, too. Whether you’re a beginner or a veteran, there’s simply no denying that better health can come with a hefty price tag.

Take wellness shots, for example. If you ever purchased them at the grocery store, you know how expensive they can be! So, why not make them from scratch with a few simple ingredients and save yourself some of your hard-earned money?

This immunity shot recipe below is made with grapefruit, lemon, and orange, which are very high in Vitamins C and A. The other ingredients included, such as ginger, turmeric, garlic, and black pepper, will lower the risk of infections and bacteria growth, enhance immune function, and make for a powerful anti-inflammatory.
