Boost Immunity with 3 Low-Sugar Smoothies

Immunity Smoothies

Since day one, we have been talking about the toll a high-sugar diet takes on your body, from bad skin to heart disease. One negative effect we have not yet discussed is immunity. Yep. Immunity. Too much sugar inhibits your immune system from functioning properly by actively effecting immune system cells that attack bacteria. This effect can lasts for at least a few hours after downing a couple of sugary drinks. So, less sugar = improved immunity function.

What’s more, sugar negatively impacts sleep cycles. Although researchers aren’t exactly sure how sleep boosts the immune system, it’s clear that getting enough - usually 7 to 9 hours for an adult - is key for good health. So, less sugar = improved sleep cycle = improved immunity function.

Check, and check.

Great. Now let’s talk about what you can be doing, proactively, to boost immunity. We’ve all heard a million times over that cramming a ton of Vitamin C supplements into your diet is the magic pill to evade those nasty viruses in their tracks. Well, that’s partially true. Vitamin C is essential to a healthy immune system (as well as a ton of other functions within the body) - no disrespect to citrus over here. But, the reality is, there is much more to a healthy immune system than Vitamin C.

Our Sweetkick resident Formulation Nerds created our Body Balance Powder to help support healthy blood sugar levels, but had some other health benefits in mind, including immunity. The Powders are loaded with Zinc, B6, Vitamin D, and Prebiotic Fiber. All of which are amazing for topnotch immunity support.

If you want to ramp it up even more, try mixing a packet of Body Balance Powder with these 3 low-sugar, immunity boosting smoothie recipes to help give your body the fuel it needs to stay out from under the covers.
