Create your own natural juice shots to combat the flu while also avoiding those dangerous, unhealthy flu shots.
Here are 5 flu shot recipes that will keep the flu away.

Apple cider vinegar is a great source of beta-carotene, which is converted into vitamin A in your body. Vitamin A is a natural antioxidant that can attack free radicals and boost your immunity to the cold and flu.
This remedy is very simple to make. All you have to do is mix one tablespoon of apple cider vinegar in 30oz of water.

Green Machine Cold and Flu Shot
Veggies, particularly dark green, leafy vegetables are known for containing an abundance of wonderfully beneficial vitamins and nutrients like magnesium, vitamin B6, and folate. Some great vegetables that help combat flu are spinach, kale, parsley, and wheatgrass.
Sprouting your own wheatgrass is very easy and cheap. Make and drink a shot of wheatgrass juice regularly to build your immune system. If you are not a fan of that strong vegetable taste, include a lemon wedge to enhance the taste and juice nutrients.
Make a green juice with spinach, kale, parsley, wheatgrass, lemon, and apple (for taste).
Cod liver oil is another wonderful source of beta-carotene, while also including a healthy dose of omega-3 fatty acids. Getting more cod liver oil can help regulate your immune system.
Blueberry Antioxidant Boost
Blueberries are considered a super food because they contain more antioxidants than most produce.
This flu shot is extremely easy to make. All you have to do is juice a handful of blueberries and drink.
Carrot Flu Killer
Carrots also contain beta-carotene. This helps respiratory and intestinal tracts with beneficial mucus. Building up a strong lining in your digestive system and respiratory system will help keep bacteria from entering your bloodstream.
Juice a handful of carrots and drink regularly.
Lemon and Ginger Zinger
Lemon and ginger are both extremely healthy ingredients that should be a part of your daily diet (especially in teas or drinks). These two ingredients can help boost your immune system, while lemon also provides anti-inflammatory properties.
Juices are wonderful, healthy immune boosters that will keep the flu out of your body this season!
