Colds. Talk about a bummer.
One minute you’re feeling great and then you start to feel that scratch in your throat and the sniffles in your sinuses. Then before you know it you feel like you just got hit by a train.
A train of chills, coughs, and way too much snot for comfort.
It’s not an enjoyable state to be in. Especially when you have work, family, and a million other demands that you need to take care of.
Luckily, there are some special vitamins that aid in reducing the duration of a cold and this smoothie is full of them!

Cold Fighting Ingredients
Fight that nasty cold with these powerful ingredients!
Apple Cider Vinegar
This unique vinegar has a cleansing benefit when it comes to colds. It creates an alkaline environment in the body which promotes the killing of bad bacteria. It can improve lymphatic drainage, which can speed up healing.
Strawberries are an excellent source of vitamin C. When your sick, you need extra vitamin C to help your body fight off that cold! Vitamin C boosts white blood cells count. White blood cells are the little guys that fight off infection!
Mangos have more vitamin C than oranges so you can skip the orange juice and chug this smoothie instead. Plus mangos are an excellent source of vitamin A, which is also important for immunity.
Cashews are high in zinc. Zinc is the best mineral for a strong immune system and is just what it needs to bust a cold. It triggers the immune response in your body and is especially helpful when consumed in the beginning stages of a cold.
Don’t let that cold get you down. Drink this smoothie when you start to feel sick and you might just shorten the duration!
