The world is battling with the onslaught of the second wave of Novel Coronavirus and preparing to face the third wave that appears to be just around the corner. We need to make all-around efforts to fight the pandemic that is just refusing to end. 

Although the vaccination drive is going to offer some kind of respite, we should explore all avenues to build our defenses. 
Regular use of proven immunity-boosting drinks, foods, and exercises has shown to improve immunity, the only and the most effective deterrent against the dreaded virus.

This summer, the expert nutritionists from FITFEAST by FITPASS recommend the following summer drinks to elevate your immunity status while keeping the scorching heat at bay.

  1. Savor the freshness of minty butter-milk

Buttermilk offers all goodness of milk minus the fat content. Traditionally, buttermilk has been one of the most popular summer drinks across Indian households. You can relish buttermilk either as a sweet lassi or a cool minty drink. Buttermilk or curd restores the healthy gut flora and improves immunity. Enhance the health benefits of buttermilk with mint leaves that are loaded with vitamin A, vitamin C, and vitamin K. Mint acts as a natural antioxidant. Enrich your drink with a dash of roasted powder of cumin seeds to add immunity-boosting vitamin C. For personalised diet plans, consult certified nutritionists from FITFEAST and take their expert advice to eat healthy and nutritious food as per your fitness goals.

  1. Kadha with honey

Kadha with Honey

Kadha is an age-old drink that can empower your immunity and also help you fight the disturbing symptoms of the respiratory tract that are common during these days. This used to be a secret recipe of grandmothers and was a first-aid for almost all kinds of ailments, including cough, cold, or fever. Preparation of this legacy drink is very easy as you have to boil three cups of water by adding turmeric powder, a couple of garlic cloves, a single stick of cinnamon, basil leaves, mint leaves, a pinch of black pepper powder, carom seeds, and ginger. Add three to four spoons of honey after cooling and enjoy the spicy aroma of the cool immunity booster kadha. 

  1. Citrus Drinks

Citrus Drinks

We can hardly imagine a summer without a refreshing glass of lemonade on a sultry afternoon. Citrus fruits such as oranges and lemons are rich sources of vitamin C. A single orange has enough vitamin C to supplement your daily requirement of vitamin C. These fruits are rich in soluble fiber and are popular because of their antioxidant benefits and hydrating properties. Try orange juice with breakfast to fight the summer heat throughout the day. Citrus drinks help kick-start your body’s metabolism and immunity to ward off infections. No wonder these are some of the most popular summer drinks.

  1. Raw mango drink- Aam Panna

Mangoes are synonymous with summer. If you want to enjoy the health benefits of mango with the added advantage of vitamin C then a traditional raw mango drink known as Panna is a must-have. Take two raw mangoes and prepare a pulp by using a pressure cooker. Remove the pulp from the seed. Add an equal quantity of sugar or jaggery to the pulp and blend it well to make a homogeneous mixture. Add salt to taste and saffron and cardamom for flavor. Store this mixture in a fridge to prepare an instant panna by mixing two teaspoon mango pulp in a glass of water. You can also add mint leaves and black pepper to make it tangier. Mangoes are rich in several essential minerals, antioxidants, and vitamins. Relish this traditional summer drink to build your immunity

  1. Watermelon juice

Watermelon juice

This is probably the easiest and the most fascinating summer drink. Watermelons are found in abundance during summer. Enjoy relishing these vibrantly colored and succulent fruits by preparing a cool watermelon juice in a jiffy. Besides being everyone’s summer favorite, watermelon provides plenty of antioxidants to fight stress besides magnesium and potassium. It is also a rich source of lycopene and beta carotene apart from being a storehouse of vitamin C and vitamin A. The high water content of watermelon helps fight dehydration during hot summer afternoons. Watermelon also replenishes lost electrolytes and water after a tiring workout, as suggested by the nutritionists from FITFEAST.
