ALL-NATURAL ‘ENERGY SHOTS’ THAT ALSO DETOX YOUR BODY AND PROMOTE WEIGHT LOSS


More than 5,000 cases of people who got sick from energy drinks were reported to U.S. poison control centers between 2010 and 2013.

Energy drinks typically contain high levels of sugar and at least as much caffeine as a cup of coffee.

The drinks also often tout the energy-boosting effects of a mix of other ingredients, ranging from taurine and l-carnitine, naturally occurring amino acids, to ginseng. Despite this “special blend” of ingredients, studies suggest energy drinks don’t boost attention any better than a cup of coffee does.

Even just one 16-ounce energy drink can increase blood pressure and stress hormones and could put a healthy young adult at risk for heart damage, concludes a 2015 Mayo Clinic study.

The safe alternative

So instead of starting your day with just coffee, alkalize it too with these health booster shots! They are easy to make and rev up your metabolism to take on the day with an abundance of energy. Drink them first thing in the morning on an empty stomach 30-60 minutes before eating solid food.

Digestion Booster Shot

Getting your body going first thing in the morning means making sure your digestive system is ready to go. This is a great drink to make sure your digestive system is on the right track.

Ingredients:
  • 1 organic lemon, freshly squeezed
  • 1 tablespoon organic apple cider vinegar (we recommend this)
  • 1 teaspoon organic ginger powder (we recommend this)
  • 2 ounces organic coconut water
All three of these ingredients have great digestive boosting properties to ensure that your system is running smoothly all day long. Problems with your digestive system can keep the rest of your body running at a less than optimal standard and leave you feeling tired all day. If this mix is too potent for you, feel free to mix in some more water to make it easier to swallow.

Green Booster Shot

You can prepare a big batch of this drink and keep it in the fridge. While it’s important to drink high alkaline beverages first thing in the morning to balance out your pH, you don’t need it in large doses, which makes these health shots perfect.

Ingredients:
  • 2 cups organic spinach
  • ¼ cup organic blueberries
  • 1 teaspoon organic ginger powder (we recommend this)
  • 2 ounces organic coconut water
Optional: some stevia for added sweetness

Blend all of these ingredients together, adding some water if you want to loosen the consistency. This smoothie contains 10 grams of protein, vitamin C and B, and loads of potassium. You can up the health factor by adding in some spirulina – a superfood algae that is also known as nature’s multivitamin.

Metabolism Booster Shot

While you might not think that these ingredients will make your body less acidic, they are actually some of the best things to drink to get your body more alkaline.

Ingredients:
  • 1 organic lemon, freshly squeezed
  • 1 tablespoon organic apple cider vinegar (we recommend this)
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 2 ounces organic coconut water
Lemon juice and apple cider vinegar actually work to get your blood to a pH level that is more alkaline, exactly what nature intended. That pinch of cayenne also helps to boost your metabolism, which can aid in losing weight and help wake your body up first thing in the morning.

Straight apple cider vinegar and lemon juice can harm your esophagus, so adding 2 ounces of coconut water will help dilute the acidity!

It’s important to ensure that we keep our bodies as alkaline as possible to keep it healthy and disease free.
