  • 1-2 cloves garlic

Notes

  • Apple Cider Vinegar: Use a raw, unfiltered apple cider vinegar that includes the mother. Pasteurized apple cider vinegar won't have the same health benefits since it doesn't contain the mother.
  • Garlic:  Pressed or crushed garlic releases enzymes that react with oxygen, triggering the formation of healthy compounds. The longer it sits in open air, the more time the enzymes have to form these compounds. Before making your immune booster shot, let the cut garlic oxidize 10-15 minutes, for maximum health benefits.
  • Make Ahead: For maximum benefits, this booster shot should be consumed immediately after making. It can be made ahead of time, though, if needed. Simply prepare the mixture as written, then refrigerate it in an airtight container. Consume within 2 days of making.
