This recipe is amazing to boost the immune, decrease inflammation
We will be using apple cider vinegar to extract the beneficial compounds from onions, garlic, horseradish, turmeric and cayenne. Onions contain quercetin, which is an antioxidant compound. It protects our DNA from damage, stabilizes mast cells, and can prevent viral replication. Garlic contains allicin, which stimulates the production of immune cells to fight viruses and also may directly damage viral cells. Turmeric contains many different compounds that have antioxidant effects and modulate the function of our immune system. Horseradish and cayenne stimulate blood flow to promote the circulation of our immune cells. Together, these ingredients have a synergistic immune boosting effect.
