So many people drive into work on January 2nd with their head stuffed up and their throat scratchy, feeling worn down and ragged. Why? All the sugar in the form of cakes, cookies, pies, and adult beverages over the holidays wreaks havoc on their immune system!
At Longevity Warehouse, we love the idea of being able to celebrate the holidays with our family and friends, without compromising our health by drinking and eating all sorts of things we normally wouldn’t. We don’t typically guzzle down sugar-filled alcoholic beverages with dinner, and then stuff ourselves with all kinds of corn syrup-filled desserts – so why should we throw our dietary standards out the window in the name of “celebration?"
Welcome in the New Year with us by choosing to uplift your body, rather than tearing it down! End 2022 on a high note and welcome in 2023 feeling strong and healthy by saying no to foods and drinks filled with chemicals, processed sugar, food dyes, and other ingredients that crash your immune system.
Here’s a fizzy, delicious, gorgeous-looking drink recipe guaranteed to keep your immune system rockin’ and your spirits naturally high. Bust this out at your New Year’s gathering this year and we guarantee you won’t miss the alcohol one bit!

What makes this Fizzy Pomegranate Orange Mocktail so good for you?
Pomegranates are AMAZING. Quite possibly one of the most potent immune system supporting fruits, these gorgeous red orbs are absolutely packed with antioxidants called tannins, including polyphenols. Their antioxidant capacity is three times higher than red wine and green tea when you blend up the entire pomegranate (not just the seeds).
Pomegranates have been scientifically proven to:
Support healthy blood pressure
Inhibit the spread of cancer cells and cause cancer cell death, specifically in the breast and prostate
Support healthy arteries and overall heart health
Support osteoarthritis by reducing inflammation in joints
Improve memory (8) and positively affect Alzheimer’s disease
Improve inflammation and ulcers in the gut
Turmeric Orange Jing Soda features the powerful spice Turmeric. Originating from the Curcuma longa plant, turmeric has been used for centuries by natural medicine practitioners for its medicinal qualities. As one of the most scientifically-studied herbs, there are over 11,000 published articles detailing turmeric's positive health factors.
The vast health-supporting benefits of turmeric are due to its robust curcuminoids. Curcumin has been shown in medical studies to be a powerful ally to maintain total body wellness. It offers the ability to balance inflammation within the body to keep your joints, organs, cells, and tissues supple. When your system is balanced, you can digest your food easily, your heart and blood can pump with ease, you can think clearly, and your immune system can protect you from illness.
Since we were little, we’ve been told to drink our orange juice when we weren’t feeling well. The immune system benefits of Oranges are widely known, so here’s just a small recap: Their high levels of vitamin C enhance the immune system and fight free radicals, while polyphenols fight off viruses. Oranges contain fiber to aid in digestion and keep your cholesterol levels healthy. They also contain cancer-protective citrus limonoids and carotenoids.
If you feel a cold coming on, freshly squeezed orange juice is one of the easiest things you can do to immediately give your immune system some extra support.
Limes are lesser known than oranges for their immune system boosting benefits, but they are actually potent vitamin C bombs. Similar to oranges, they contain limonoids, which protect against cancer. Limes have been used to treat malaria, purify drinking water, and protect against atherosclerosis, which is the buildup of plaque on the walls of your arteries. Don’t underestimate the health-supporting properties of this small little fruit!
It’s no coincidence that the flu strikes so heavily around this time of the year, but luckily, there are tasty steps you can take to avoid it. The Fizzy Pomegranate Orange Mocktail is not only a delicious way to avoid body-busting holiday beverages, but a superior way to support your immune system when everyone around you is getting sick.
To really fortify your immune system, we highly recommend adding Immunity Drops to this delicious concoction. Adding the power of medicinal mushrooms gives you even more fighting power against any germ trying to knock you off your new year’s game. Reishi mushroom supports every single function of your body, and turkey tail is one of the top recommended mushrooms to build the resiliency of the immune system.
We’ve been adding Immunity Drops to pretty much everything we’re drinking these days as an easy way to get extra immune support against all the sniffles around us. Trying adding a squirt to every drink you down, or right in your mouth anytime you think of it!
