With winter comes less sun, less fun, and also a weaker immune system as flu season kicks off once it starts getting cold. As the world is navigating through a global pandemic, it is important to stay healthy and safe and take care of your health, especially when it is so easy to get sick.

In addition to staying at home, wearing your mask when outdoors and washing your hands, you can also boost your immune system throughout the winter to make you feel more energized. Although it is not a cure for anything, a simple green juice can make you feel healthier as they are filled with vitamins, antioxidants and fibres. For example, celery juice has proven to help with digestion and bloating, and ingredients like ginger has been used for thousands of years due to its healing powers.
