Easy and quick recipes to boost your immunity

With COVID-19 crossing the patients’ count of 6.6 million across the globe and resulting in the demise of around 3 million individuals, it has proved to be the worst nightmare people are currently living in. Following precautions like social distancing, covering your mouth, washing hands, and maintaining good self-hygiene might help in conquering the disease but, the most important part is your immune system which needs to be kept strong. It has been seen in many cases that individuals who had a better immune system were able to recover faster from this deadly disease. Immune acts as the strongest warrior against the invisible corona enemy.

Keeping this in mind I am sharing recipes of few immune booster drinks which are very easy to make and you don’t need to spend even a penny on it.
