Three Powerful Shots to Alkalize Your Body and Start Your Day Right
Mornings are usually rough.
Most of us feel… how to put it… well, less than stellar I suppose.
Every morning, you’re probably feeling stiff, achy all over and the pillow is just calling your name to get back, stay in and sleep a couple of additional hours. So what can really help you start your day on the right foot?
Let me guess – a fresh cup of coffee – right?
Everyone loves coffee in the morning; however, according to research from the Uniformed Services University of Health Sciences, the morning hours are actually the worst time to drink coffee. Furthermore, it caffeine around two hours to kick in, so it also won’t help you stay awake.
But if we told you that there’s a much more effective (and healthier) way to start your day off?
Why You Need to Start Your Day with an Alkalizing Drink
What your body needs is something stronger than coffee – it needs an energy booster that will also help flush all of the toxins you didn’t manage to push out overnight.
But that’s not all, a strong, antioxidant-filled drink will also help you strengthen your immune system, and allow your body to fight off common illnesses like the flu or cold. Antioxidants are there to neutralize all of those damaging free radicals and convert them into oxygen, which will in turn be used to oxygenate your tissue and produce more energy.
Now, all of the drinks we’re about to show you have simple ingredients, but if you want to consume them on a regular basis, it would wise to stack up on your supplies at least once a week. And if you don’t have enough time to fit a weekly grocery shopping trip into your busy schedule, you have a number of meal delivery services out there that send fresh groceries at your front door every week.
But enough about that, let’s take a closer look at some the most powerful alkalizing drinks that will provide your body with all the nutrients it needs first thing in the morning.
Three Powerful Alkalizing Drinks
1. Straight Apple Cider Vinegar
Let’s start things off with the easiest and the most powerful way to start your day off – Apple Cider Vinegar (or as most people like to call it ACV). Most experts tend to agree that it is the most alkaline beverage in nature, and only a small serving of it can provide you with so many aliments.
If you often deal with chronic headaches, muscle pains and bad digestion, it will all disappear only after a few seconds after you drink some ACV. And how much should you drink? Well it’s up to you, because you’ll definitely benefit no matter how much you decide to drink in the morning.
2. Green Smoothie
Now, if you want to lose some weight, the next item on our list can be also served as breakfast. However, if you like to have strong breakfast in the morning, you can also drink this green smoothie before it.
This smoothie is also a rather simple drink (it only has three ingredients) and it takes less than five minutes to prepare. In addition, the spinach will give you around 10 grams of protein (with some iron and vitamin C) and will make you feel amazing as soon as you get out of the bed.
3. Lemon and ACV Combo (with Cayenne)
Unfortunately, this drink doesn’t actually have a name. Nevertheless, it will be more than helpful in the morning. All of the ingredients will boost your digestive system and give you a similar buzz a cup of coffee would but without the sudden crash you usually feel afterwards.
For centuries, lemon has been known as a top cleansing and alkalizing food, and with the addition of cayenne (an inflammatory reducing, metabolism booster) and *ACV, you’ll have a powerful and cleansing drink that will make you feel rejuvenated every morning. *ACV-Apple Cide Vinegar
