There can be a lot of benefits to drinking immunity-boosting juices, especially when you are sick with a cold or flu virus. So as winter hits us and the cold and flu season kicks in, it can be very handy to have a stash of drinks at home that contain fresh fruit ingredients that actively help to deliver essential vitamins and minerals that we need to fight off those winter bugs and keep our energy up.
This means there are great opportunities for drink manufacturers to produce and provide drink products that pack a nutritional punch because of the immune-boosting ingredients they contain.
If you are thinking about creating a fruit-based drink made with immunity-enhancing ingredients to specifically target the health marketplace and people that are looking for something to boost their body's natural defences, then you should consult with our team at JC Dudley and make good use of our many years of industry expertise.

If you are looking for excellent juice ingredients that combine to create a great immunity-boosting punch, then how about the following suggested combinations:
1: Orange, apple and carrot: A nice balance of tartness from the apple helps to balance the sweetness of the orange and carrot. This combination can deliver a healthy dose of vitamin A, B-6, and C, potassium and folic acid.
2: Grapefruit and orange: Packed full of vitamin A, B-6, and C, folic acid and zinc, this combination is rich in antioxidants and helps to protect cells from damage as well as giving the body the ability to fight off infections.
3: Mango and strawberries: With a healthy dose of vitamin E from the mango, this is a drink to help boost your immune system. A tasty way to get a nice balance of vitamins A, C, and E, iron and folate.
4: Watermelon: With its high water content, watermelon is great for rehydrating your cells. However, did you know that the unique combination of nutrients in watermelon (vitamin A and C, magnesium and zinc) can help to reduce muscle soreness – a common symptom of the flu.
5: Kiwi, strawberries and mint: A surprisingly refreshing mix of flavours that pack a decent punch of vitamin C. This immune-boosting combination contains vitamin A, C, and B-6, magnesium, zinc and folate.
