Top 8 DIY Immune Booster Drinks
Our immune system is a shield that is at work round the clock, fighting the germs, viruses, and all other detrimental foreign substances that enter our body one way or the other. These foreign substances that are harmful to our health are called antigens.
Our immune system makes antibodies (aka immunoglobulins) to fight or keep you protected from the known antigens if they attack you again.
