If you've woken up with the sniffles or are trying to arm yourself against the cold and flu, it's a good idea to give your body the nutrients it needs to build up a strong defence.

Apple, ginger and carrot are just three ingredients that you really can't get enough of this season.

The vitamin C in apples work as natural antioxidants, the body warming effect of ginger and its anti-viral properties will work to build up a strong immunity, and the carrots, which are rich in beta-carotene (and covert to vitamin A), will also help to strengthen the immune system.

Juice them together, and you've got yourself a punchy cold and flu fighter - pow, pow.
