With the gray skies of February limiting our natural intake of vitamin D through sun exposure, I'm always looking for extra ways to give my immune system a boost and get some extra spermidine into my diet. These fiery immune-supporting shots are just the ticket, with turmeric and ginger supplying their well-known anti-inflammatory properties, and the grapefruit juice adding spermidine to my daily intake.
They're a tasty option at the first sign of a cold to help your body stay fighting fit through the end of winter. Note: it's not necessary to peel the ginger and turmeric, only to wash them well.

Run each ingredient through the juicer, one at a time.
