Most of us start the new year with a sluggish system. Holiday parties mean later nights and more treats and cocktails than usual. Don't get us wrong: it can be worth it, and we're all for living it up during the holidays, but if you want to get your body and brain back and track, you need to kick-start your system. One of our favourite go-to post-celebratory strategies involves using a simple drink to cleanse and revive our metabolisms. You only need three ingredients: water, apple cider vinegar and lemon juice.
You've doubtlessly heard about the benefits of all of these ingredients on their own.Water hydrates and cleanses your body;lemon juice contains vitamin C which can purify your body and bolster your immune system, andapple cider vinegar regulates blood sugar, which can help you control cravings. And these are only a few of the many perks.
Separately, all of these ingredients have been shown to aid digestion, increase skin health, and help facilitate weight loss efforts, and when you combine them together, you've got a superpowered cocktail of visible goodness. These aren’t results you just feel in increased energy and enhanced mental focus: they are results you’ll see in a brighter complexion and trimmer, less bloated figure.
Don’t believe us? Then take the challenge. Try this concoction for a week, first thing in the morning, before you eat or drink anything else.
Here’s what you’ll need:
2 cups water(Warm water is best in this circumstance, since it stimulates digestion and helps get your bowels moving. Many people also find warm water easier to take on an empty stomach.)
2 tbsp lemon juice (Fresh or bottled, as long as it isjustlemon — no added sugar!)
1 tbsp apple cider vinegar with the mother.(The mother is the bacteria culture that turns apple cider into vinegar. The Journal of the American College of Nutrition has conducted studies which show that this 'mother' is high in iron, which is key to blood oxygenation and healthy cellular function. 'Mother' also contains phytochemicals, which protect against serious diseases.)
Here’s what you do:
Mix the ingredients together in a glass, and drink up! If you make this drink a part of your morning routine for seven days, we guarantee you’ll reap the rewards of a higher functioning, cleaner running system. We’re talking more energy, less bloating, increased concentration and a healthier glow. Make it a part of your long-term healthy lifestyle you’ll enjoy these perks, permanently.
