Turmeric tops the charts for our favorite immune system booster. Good for warding off sickness and inflammation, turmeric is definitely something to put in your cup! This delicious latte was developed by our friend, Maria Uspenski, founder of The Tea Spot, a tea connoisseur and cancer survivor who swears by this concoction to keep her immune system in tip top shape. Not to mention oh, how your skin will glow!
Bone broth is like a fresh-pressed juice version of protein and minerals. It receives so much hype these days yet it’s probably the oldest recipe in the book. Broth is a cure-all in all traditional households and it goes down warm and delicious – perfect for a cold snowy day. Visit your local Whole Foods or juice bar and you may be able to buy a steaming mug of it on the go OR better yet, make your own.
Here at Conscious Cleanse HQ, you can always find us drinking a warm cup of hot tea. Our Conscious Cleanse Detox tea is one of our favorites, full of healing botanicals like sage, lemongrass, lemon balm, and lemon peel. Keeping toxins at bay is key to keeping your immune system strong. Every cup will leave you feeling naturally refreshed.
Ok, so we know you don’t serve green juice in a mug, but this had to make our drinkable wellness roundup. Green juice is chock full of enzymes, vitamins, and minerals, giving your body a concentrated boost of nutrients. Don’t have a juicer? Luckily, there are juice bars all over the place now! Treat yourself to a green juice loaded with collards, parsley, cucumber, celery, lemon, and ginger for a real immune system fortifier.
Dandelion root has been used for thousands of years to treat depression, scurvy and even diabetes. It is also a great liver detoxifier, helping you to shed toxins and extra pounds. Since we all know how hard it is to give up coffee, which can be too taxing of many people’s adrenals, we decided to give you an alternative that tastes amazing and is “CC Wellness Beverage” approved!
Yoga isn’t the only way to balance your energy. Our Ojas Energy Elixir is the perfect drink for this time of year to help us rebalance our energy after a crazy and stressful week. This traditional Ayurvedic drink contains four unique ingredients that when blended together increase vitality and nourish the body. Who ever thought that adding rose petals could have such a cozy effect!
