Forget Coffee! (Did I really just say that?)
Start every single day with this powerful and healthy cocktail for increased energy, appetite control, detoxification, better digestion, improved pH levels, and healthy weight management!
1. Raw Apple Cider Vinegar
ACV has been highly regarded throughout history. In 400 B.C. the great Hippocrates, Father of Medicine, used it for its amazing health qualities. We now know that ACV has many internal health benefits, such as:
- Rich in enzymes & potassium
- Support a healthy immune system
- Helps control weight
- Promotes digestion & ph Balance
- Helps soothe dry throats
- Helps remove body sludge toxins
Which type of ACV to use?
Choosing the right type of ACV is very important if you want to get the best results. Real ACV is made by fermenting pressed apple juice until the natural sugar turns into vinegar. Always choose organic ACV which is unfiltered, unpasteurized, and unprocessed and not the clear and refined stuff you find in most stores. If you really want to use a good quality ACV, it needs to have the “mother” of vinegar, which is the cloudy matter that floats or often sinks to the bottom of the bottle. This substance contains beneficial enzymes, bacteria and trace minerals that make ACV so beneficial for you. Also don’t forget to shake the bottle each time before using the ACV to distribute the good elements.
2. Fresh Squeezed Organic Lemon
There are several key health benefits of consuming fresh squeezed lemon juice:
- Promotes fresh breath
- Ensures balanced pH levels
- Improves digestive function
- Strengthens immune system
- Promotes skin repair
- Cleanses and revitalizes the urinary tract
- Detoxifies the liver
- Promotes faster healing and regeneration
- Effectively curbs appetite
Lemon juice is especially beneficial for detoxification. The liver is the body’s primary cleaner, which means it shoulders a lot of grunt work in order to keep the entire system from shutting down. For people who live less than healthy lives, the liver often needs help to clean up all the sludge and regain the body’s status quo. Consuming lemon juice daily promotes the increased production of bile, which is a substance necessary for digestion. Conversely, lemon juice also controls the flow of excess bile, ensuring that it does not damage the digestive tract, particularly the stomach (as it can lead to ulcers). Imagine being able to reboot your liver function, thereby allowing it to remove toxins at an optimal level as if it is a brand new organ that is untainted by unhealthy eating habits and excessive consumption of alcohol and/or fat.
Lemon is also a natural diuretic (beverages/substances that make you urinate often and in large volumes). Drinking it ensures that you have a cleaner (and more functional) urinary tract. In the long run, this would also have cumulative detoxing effects since the body disposes waste materials through urine. Flushing out liquid waste at a much faster rate reduces the risk of accumulating bacteria in the body, thus preventing a number of diseases such as urinary tract infection and many others.
3. Pure Organic Cranberry Juice
According to a study reported in Science Daily, unsweetened cranberry juice has proven to be a significant reducer in urinary tract infections and might also be linked to a reduced risk of kidneys stones, cardiovascular disease and cancer. In disease-fighting antioxidants, cranberries outrank nearly every fruit and vegetable–including strawberries, spinach, broccoli, red grapes, apples, raspberries, and cherries. One cup of whole cranberries has 8,983 total antioxidant capacity.
Another major benefit of cranberries is the ability to eliminate any bacteria that might be hiding in your kidneys. A few ounces of pure cranberry juice a day may wipe out this bacteria and even prevent them from sticking to the cell walls of your kidneys.
In addition to being an effective way for cleansing out your liver, kidneys, and bladder, cranberries also have a very high nutritional value. Cranberries are very low in sodium and cholesterol and are a very good source of manganese as well as vitamins E, K, and C.
4. Ground Cayenne Pepper
Many societies, especially those of the Americas and China, have a history of using cayenne pepper therapeutically. A powerful compound with many uses, cayenne pepper is growing in popularity for its cleansing and detoxifying properties and its ability to stimulate circulation and neutralize acidity.
Cayenne pepper has been used for centuries for a variety of ailments including heartburn, delirium, tremors, gout, paralysis, fever, dyspepsia, flatulence, sore throat, atonic dyspepsia, hemorrhoids, menorrhagia in women, nausea, tonsillitis, scarlet fever and diphtheria.
Here’s a breakdown of just some of the many health benefits of consuming cayenne pepper:
Detox Support: Cayenne is a known circulatory stimulant. It also increases the pulse of our lymphatic and digestive rhythms. By heating the body, the natural process of detoxification is streamlined. Cayenne also causes us to sweat, another important process of detoxification.
Anti-Cold and Flu Agent: Cayenne pepper aids in breaking up and moving congested mucus. Once mucus begins to leave the body, relief from flu symptoms generally follows.
Anti-Fungal Properties: The results of one study indicated that cayenne pepper could effectively prevent the formation of the fungal pathogens phomopsis and collectotrichum.
Anti-Allergen: Cayenne is an anti- agent and may even help relieve allergies.
Supports Weight Loss: Scientists at the Laval University in Quebec found that participants who took cayenne pepper for breakfast were found to have less appetite, leading to less caloric intake throughout the day. Cayenne is also a great metabolic-booster, aiding the body in burning excess amounts of fats.
In a tall glass, combine:
- 3 oz pure, unsweetened cranberry juice
- juice of 1/2 lemon, squeezed
- 2 tbsp organic, raw, unfiltered apple cider vinegar (with the mother)
- 1 dash cayenne powder
- 4 – 12 oz pure filtered drinking water (to taste)
Adjust the amount of water to fit your taste. Add ice and enjoy! This slightly sweet, tangy and extremely refreshing cocktail has a great surprise kick from the cayenne.
