Let's face it, being healthy is expensive business. I don't see it getting better anytime soon, so until then.... DIY. I mean, I didn't invest in this Vitamix for nothing.
These CCB Wellness Shots are EVERYTHING you need to kick and prevent those bugs out there. If you do NOTHING else to be healthy, do this. Thank me later.

Raw Ginger - Basically a God like-veggie-fruit.... (it's a root, so no one really knows whether it's a veg or fruit, let's call it a fruit and make it appeal to people).
Raw Turmeric - Cleansy Cleansy. Say goodbye to allergies and inflammation.
Grapefruit - VERY detoxifying, buh-by water weight.
Water - OBVIOUSLY.
Beauty Dust - F#CKING MAGIC. Truly.
So, I like mine extra spicy and add the same amount of ginger as I do turmeric. If you want it less spicy, add less ginger.
I add about 6 stalks of ginger and 6 stalks of turmeric, one cup ACV, 2 teaspoons beauty dust, 5 ounces of water, and one whole grapefruit to my Vitamix. Blend well. Store in sealed tight mason jars -- will last for at least two weeks
I take 2-2oz shots, once in the morning before food and once right before bed.
IMPORTANT NOTE: TURMERIC WILL STAIN ANYTHING IT COMES INTO CONTACT WITH SO GET IT OFF IMMEDIATELY. Use white vinegar to remove stains.
