How to Make an Immunity Boosting Shot with Celery, Spinach, Ginger, Lemon, and Manuka Honey

As the heavy restrictions of Covid-19 are starting to be pried back, it’s more important than ever to stay vigilant about your health and immune system. Even with regular exercise and healthy eating, sometimes we all could do with a little pick-me-up to help our bodies ward off illness from germs and diseases.

There are essentially three main vitamins that are known to assist your immune system:

  • Vitamin C is involved in making white blood cells, which fight infections and diseases. It’s also an antioxidant and is required to make collagen for healing wounds and tissue.
  • Vitamin B6 is essential for kick starting your immune response so that your body can defend itself against harmful pathogens.
  • Vitamin E is also an antioxidant so it protects your body’s cells from inflammation and damage. It is also thought to prevent blood clots.

Any good immunity booster shot should be full of these three vitamins.

One of the best ways to get a high intake of vitamins is to eat raw fruits and vegetables. There are a few vegetables that maintain some of their nutrients and vitamins after they are cooked, but many don’t survive the cooking process.

Blending up your own immunity shot means you can get a good dose of raw fruits and vegetables, which are full of the three essential vitamins that keep your immune system at its peak.

Plus, you can mix it the way you like it, improvise and add your own touch. It’s easy and allows you to incorporate certain foods into your diet that you normally wouldn’t. You don’t need a fancy juicer or blender, an average handheld mixer does the trick if you chop everything up first.

Here is what you will need:

LemonHow To Make An Immunity Boosting Shot With Celery, Spinach, Ginger, Lemon, And Manuka Honey

Lemon is legendary for its high vitamin C content. This gives it antioxidizing and therefore, anti-inflammatory capabilities. In addition to numerous other health benefits (smooth skin, digestion, antibacterial), lemon also aids the liver to do its job – to remove toxins.

Ginger enhances immune response, especially in the thyroid, by increasing the number of antibodies and red blood cells in your body. It’s good for digestion and is also favored as a prevention against some types of cancer.

When eaten raw, fresh ginger has a very distinct taste that some people find quite strong.

Celery

Celery also contains some anti-oxidants, as well as trace amounts of vitamins.

Manuka Honey

If you don’t have Manuka honey, then any raw honey will be just as good.

Spinach

One cup of raw spinach can provide you with almost 15% of your recommended daily allowance of vitamin C (and a whopping 60% of vitamin A).

Recipe for Immunity Boosting Shot

The ingredients you will need are:

  • 2 cups of spinach;
  • 1 large stalk or 2 small stalks of celery;
  • ¼ of a lemon;
  • 1 or 2 slices of ginger;
  • ¼ cup of water;
  • 1 ½ tablespoons of honey.How To Make An Immunity Boosting Shot With Celery, Spinach, Ginger, Lemon, And Manuka Honey
  • Chop up the spinach, celery, lemon and ginger.
  • Blend all of the ingredients.
  • Serves 2 – 3 shots.How To Make An Immunity Boosting Shot With Celery, Spinach, Ginger, Lemon, And Manuka Honey

It is possible to strain the mixture to remove the pulp, however the pulp is essentially the fiber from the ingredients, so it’s much more beneficial to drink whole.

This shot can be a bit unappealing to kids, but blending in a piece of fruit can completely change the taste. I can definitely recommend kiwi fruit. It really compliments this shot, and is also fantastic for the immune system.

    I am purchasing three books and articles for my family for Christmas gifts. Better be safe than sorry. I am 83 years old and remember medicinal herbs from my grand parents. I am so happy to find this book. This world is so uncertain and every one should be self sufficient.

      God bless!

    Nicole, can the blended concoction be stored in a mason jar in the fridge without losing any potency for a day or two?

    • The Lost Herbs Posted July 3, 2020 11:08 am

      Hi Tim,

      Thank you so much for your comment.
      Yes, you can store it in the fridge for two days. It will not lose its benefits.

    Thank you, Nicole, for providing such a wonderful resource to explore the amazing world of natural medicine. I stumbled upon your book, which I purchased without hesitation, because it reminded me so much of all the things I wish I had written down while my grandparents and mother showed me examples of some as we hiked local mountain trails, even on our own property. This is the kind of knowledge I want to pass down to my children so they know they have alternatives to modern medicine. And that yes, it is a choice. Knowledge is power, I believe that to be true. When you pair the natural ingredients our Earth provides with the bodies it created to use them, how can we go wrong? I do believe there are times modern medicine can, and does, work better, but in my own personal experience, I have learned there is much that can be done naturally before it ever has to get to that point. You give people the information they need, and just enough of the meat without too much fluff to be something that sits on the nightstand without ever truly being appreciated. This is my new go-to resource. Sometimes you might need to do a little more research on your own if what you’re looking for is very specific. But overall, this is an extremely valuable tool that provides comprehensive information on practically every kind of vegetation on the planet that has medicinal and/or therapeutic properties. I feel so blessed to be receiving occasional recipes and other tips straight from the source! Thanks so much for all you do. Sending warmest blessings today and always! Stay well out there everyone xoxo

      Hi Christina,

      Thank you so much for your e-mail.
      We truly appreciate your kind words!

      As Hippocrates used to say “Nature itself is the best physician”. Every herbal remedy has a role and a meaning. As it is one of the oldest type of medicine, we should be aware that it is best to trust its power.

      God bless!

    I am wondering if the skin and pith of the lemon are included in the blend or if I can peel it first and just use the pulp and juice of the lemon?

    • The Lost Herbs Posted July 3, 2020 11:16 am

      Hi Teresa,

      Thank you so much for your e-mail.
      I advise you to use the pulp and the juice of the lemon only.

      God bless!

  • Amber Posted July 3, 2020 4:50 am

    I am also wondering if you keep the skin on the lemon?

    • The Lost Herbs Posted July 3, 2020 11:18 am

      Hi Amber,

      Thank you so much for your interest in our work.
      You should use the pulp and the juice of the lemon only.

      God bless!

    Is there anything else that would work with this in place of the celery? I’d love to try this, but cannot stand celery in even the slightest form. Thanks!

    • The Lost Herbs Posted July 9, 2020 10:30 am

      Hi Pamela,

      Thank you so much for your comment.
      You can replace Celery with Green Apple or Cucumber.

      God bless!
