The Immune Booster Guys 40+ Are Using To Kill Viruses & Feel Younger…

As men age, our immune systems get weaker.
It’s a fact. After 40, you become more vulnerable to viruses, cancers, and even Alzheimer’s disease. Average guys just let this all happen. But now, with Immune Booster RX, you can take the power back.

Our 4 Favorite Healthy Holiday Cocktails

1. Slim Eggnog

People who love eggnog, LOVE eggnog.

But between the eggs, sweetener, and dairy, eggnog can be a pretty heavy drink!

That's why we dug up a recipe for slimmer eggnog.

By using skim milk, bringing the egg count down, and reducing sugar, you can have a jolly good time at 144 calories a glass!

We'll drink to that!

You will need:

  • 2 cups skim milk
  • 1/2 vanilla bean, split and scraped
  • 2 large eggs plus 1 egg yolk
  • 1/4 cup fat-free sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly grated whole nutmeg (plus more for garnish)
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup white rum or bourbon (optional)

Convert some non-believers of eggnog this year with this delicious recipe!

2. Tropical Seasons Greetings

With the way the weather has been fluctuating in recent years, those white Christmases just like the ones you used to know are no guarantee, even in the coldest climates.

So, f you're seeing more green than white, are in a warmer climate, or just dreaming of warmer weather, this is the cocktail for you.

Rum, coconut milk, and lime together make a jammin' good time for your taste buds!

With a mint garnish and a pucker of pomegranate, this cocktail may become an unexpected favorite.

  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 2 cups refrigerated unsweetened coconut milk (such as Silk)
