When you choose to start your day in a healthy way, both physically and mentally, you’re setting a precedent for yourself.
More so, you’re setting a standard that says you won’t settle for anything less than what is best for you and your body.
I want to share with you a simple and delicious way to start your day the healthy way, which will have you feeling energized and ready to take on the world.
Your Morning Health “Cocktail”
#1: 8-12oz of filtered warm water
#2: tbs of Apple Cider Vinegar
#3: half lemon(squeezed)
As soon as you wake up in the morning, I recommend making this healthy “cocktail”, which comprises of just three ingredients – water, lemon juice, and apple cider vinegar.
All you have to do is add each ingredient into a glass at the recommended doses, stir, and drink.
Don’t be fooled by the simplicity of this drink because it packs quiet the energizing punch.
And a ton of health benefits along with.
One of the biggest being in how it aids digestion.
Jump-starting your digestion system in the morning gives you a feeling of vitality and helps you avoid feelings of bloatedness, lethargy, and sluggishness other meals in the day may give you.
As I’ve written about in the past, your digestive system is responsible for the health of a remarkable amount of other systems in the body, including your brain.
Apple cider vinegar is made through a long, slow fermentation process, leaving it rich in bioactive components like acetic acid, gallic acid, catechin, epicatechin, caffeic acid, and more, giving it potent antioxidant, antimicrobial, and many other beneficial properties.
The longer fermentation period allows for the accumulation of a non-toxic slime composed of yeast and acetic acid bacteria, known as the mother of vinegar.
“Mother” of vinegar, a cobweb-like amino acid-based substance found in unprocessed, unfiltered vinegar, and indicates your apple cider vinegar is of the best quality.
My go to brand is Bragg’s apple cider vinegar, which is organic, non-gmo, raw, and unfiltered.
