Boost your immune system to help ward off the flu with this antioxidant- and vitamin-rich shake. Honey has anti-viral compounds, and mangoes are a real boon to your immunity as they’re one of the few fruits that boast the healthy vitamin cocktail of A, C and E. Blueberries are loaded with disease-destroying antioxidants plus anti-inflammatory agents.

Training and a busy lifestyle can compromise immune function. Whey protein helps prevent disease by increasing production of glutathione, which is the essential fuel of your immune system.
