Hayfever Allergy Fighter.
As I travelled around, fantasizing about burying my face in the fluffy pink cheery blossom that hangs in choochie clusters from our trees, I forget about the down side, the stinging eyes , the running nose, the tickle in the throat and cough all caused as reactions to the trees pollen that’s flying around as well now, what we call “hay fever”.
The best natural anti- histamine has got to be vitamin C, the natural stuff, from natural sources. This juice, first thing in the morning, will boost your immune system and give those allergy boys a run for their money, especially on an empty stomach.
Drinking this once in the morning is not enough to protect you from allergies all day lone, but with these quantities you can drink again before lunch and supper, ideally before Maghreb time because once the sun starts to go down the pollen comes down and things get worse fora little while.
All is Vitamin C is a great anti-oxidants that keeps your skin younger for longer.
So here we go, this will make nearly 2 pint glass.
