Ingredients:
2 kiwis
2 mandarines
2 teaspoons of honey with eucalyptus (I bought that honey in Aldi a while ago but you can buy eucalyptus honey HERE)
200ml coconut water

Now, you might wonder how those ingredients above can help you to boost your immunity, so here is the reason why:

KIWI: Containing almost 20 vital nutrients, including five times the vitamin C of an orange in one serving, kiwis can legitimately be called a super fruit. This fuzzy brown powerhouse with the bright green flesh also is rich in vitamin A, K, E and B, potassium, copper, folate, and fiber.It has a notable protective effect against asthma and respiratory difficulties, such as wheezing.

MANDARINE:Vitamin C in Mandarin is instrumental in preventing cold and is vital for the proper functioning of a healthy immune system. Mandarins have anti-microbial properties that prevent wounds from getting septic and from viral, fungal and bacterial infections. Mandarins prevent spasm in the digestive and nervous system thus prevents cramps and vomiting. Mandarin is a natural blood purifier that helps to flush out toxins and unwanted substances from the body.

CONONUT WATER: The micronutrients in coconut water help boost the immune system. Plus, the plant hormones called cytokinins in this health drink exhibit anti-aging, antithrombotic and anticancer effects. Coconut water it’s packed with antioxidants, amino acids, enzymes, B-complex vitamins, vitamin C and minerals like iron, calcium, potassium, magnesium, manganese and zinc.

EUCALYPTUS HONEY: It has 3 major health benefits:
