Pomegranate is one of the most recognizable superfruits available and is a good source of antioxidants like polyphenolic flavonoids and anthocyanidins that help fight free radicals. Strawberries and oranges are loaded with Vitamin C and help build up your immune system by increasing the production of white blood cells. And ginger helps decrease inflammation, which in turn helps reduce a sore throat and other inflammatory illnesses.
