Malta remedy 1
I pretty much grew up drinking Malta, so I never have a problem gulping down this remedy. Seriously, what Latino doesn’t drink this barley drink? All you have to do is add 2 bottles of Malta, 1/2 pound of achiote, and 1/2 a bottle of honey to a sauce pan and boil them together for 10 minutes. Pour it throught a strainer to liquefy it, then store in a glass jar. Keep it in the fridge and try drinking about 3 or 4 ounces (the amount of an expresso shot) every morning and at night before going to bed.
Molasses remedy 2
This is another one of my favorite remedios for the immune system. Abuela makes this one all the time. Take 1 large raw beet and grind it, then liquify it with a strainer. Combine the beet juice with a bottle of molasses and drink a tablespoon a day for results.
Guayaba remedy 3
Dominicans really swear by guavas when it comes to staying healthy. This tropical fruit is rich in iron which is great for building up the immune system. Try adding 3 or 4 chopped guyabas with 1 chopped red pepper (also rich in iron) to a blender with a tablespoon of brown sugar. Can’t find any guayabas in your local supermarket? Don’t worry, Goya sells them frozen! I drink a full glass every morning now for breakfast.
Carrot juice remedy 5
Another really good remedy for bringing up your immune system is a carrot and beet juice batido. Cut up 3 or 4 carrots and throw them into a food processor or juicer, then add 1 chopped beet. Add a cup of freshly squeezed orange juice along with 2 tablespoons of oatmeal. Make sure it liquefies well.
