When you roll out of bed in the morning, the first thing you put in your stomach, first thing you put in your system, your body is so unbelievably receptive to. You’ve been fasting, and your body is just waiting to grasp on to any nutrient that comes its way. What do you want to do? What do you want to eat first thing in the morning? Because if you run into the pantry and you grab, say, some cereal, or you grab something like a PopTart, you’re going to absorb all those junk nutrients, all those junk ingredients. You’re not going to get the power that you need to get through the day.
This video isn’t about a power breakfast, but imagine a way that you could get yourself to absorb more nutrients throughout the day. Imagine a way that you could get yourself to really have what you need and let your liver do a lot of the work of detoxification for you.
The good news is, it’s really simple. It really is simple. It’s a matter of a little concoction with apple cider vinegar, some lemon, possibly some honey, and a little dash of cayenne pepper, that spicy, horrible, brutal stuff. What exactly is this going to do for you? The lemon: lemon breaks down the mucus. We are always producing mucus. We’re producing it whether we’re sick or whether we’re not, but a lot of times when we’re sick and we have a cold, you can feel the mucus because you have an abundance of it. The fact is, you always have that mucus, and a lot of times, it’s inhibiting your breathing. It’s making it feel like you have allergies, sometimes, when you don’t even know it. That lemon’s going to help cut through that.
The other thing that the lemon’s going to do, which is amazing, is it helps detox the liver. When I say “detox the liver,” the liver’s always regenerating, so if you can give yourself some lemon, that liver’s going to have a chance to regenerate and absorb what’s good from the lemon first thing in the morning and stimulate the rejuvenation and the detoxification. Maybe you had one too many drinks last night and you need to have a little bit of help in boosting that liver, that lemon’s going to do that for you.
Then, the apple cider vinegar combined with the lemon is going to help your lymphatic system. You may wonder what the lymphatic system is. In case you didn’t know, the lymphatic system is basically all your lymph nodes. All your lymph glands. You have them in your armpits, you have them in your groin, the back of your knees. They’re what produce all the white blood cells that fight infection in your body. You’ve always got little infections going on. You’ve always got things going on, you’ve always got little cuts that your body’s having to heal, and it’s taking energy away from everything else in your day. If you can help the immune system and you can help that lymph system, then voila, suddenly you feel a heck of a lot better.
This is just one little way that you can help boost the lymph system. How are we going to make this drink? I’ve already told you the ingredients, but let’s get down to what you have to do. You’re going to take 12 ounces of water. Real simple. You don’t have to do anything crazy to it, don’t have to boil it, but I do recommend that it’s lukewarm because it’s going to help you absorb a little bit more.
You’re going to take that water, you’re going to take the juice from that half of a lemon. Just one half of a lemon, juice it on into the water, and then you’re going to take two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar, you’re going to add a little bit of honey just so it’s not quite so tart, and then you’re going to throw some cayenne pepper in it. That’s kind of a wild card because the cayenne probably wasn’t expected, right? The cayenne pepper’s going to jack up the metabolism so you’re going to burn a little bit more fat and get that metabolism raving, because let’s face it, who doesn’t want to burn a little bit of fat?
All you’re going to do is mix these ingredients up, take a little sip, and there you go. You’re just going to drink those 12 ounces of water. Do that every morning, and I promise you you will notice a result. If you’re worried about the carbs in the honey, it’s easy. It’s easy to just phase it out. You get yourself used to the flavor and then start phasing out the honey. Then you’ve got a zero-calorie drink that you can drink first thing in the morning that detoxifies your liver, boosts your immune system, and helps digestion.
