I have been
LOVING being obsessed with Instagram. What was I thinking missing out on the fun you can have on there?! (I’m @vblean … come find me!)
Ready for a natural every day detox you can incorporate daily to help you on the way to your goals?
VBLEAN’S ACV Lemon Detox Drink
- Cold Water
- Apple Cider Vinegar (With the ‘Mother’)
- Lemon Juice
How-To Option #1:
Mix cold water (I use between 16-25 oz), a few ice cubes, 1-2 tbsp apple cider vinegar (the more you use, the more the detox effect but also the more bitter the drink will be), lemon juice of at least one full lemon, a sprinkle of cinnamon and stevia to taste. Drink entire thing first thing in the morning!
How-To Option #2:
Mix everything above but only in a few tbsp of water, and chase with 16-25 oz plain water. Drink both first thing in the morning!
Detoxification and Cleansing Properties of this Drink:
Apple Cider Vinegar:
The acids in apple cider vinegar bind to toxins and help the body get rid of them more effectively. It also helps fight against yeast, bacteria, and fungus. It breaks up mucus in the body and helps digestion. It also helps circulation and helps the liver detoxify.
Stimulates gastric juices which means it helps in detoxification, and it eliminates gases in the digestive tract. Lemon juice has a high potassium content which helps destroy toxins. Lemon juice helps bile secretion, which helps break down fats correctly.
Even mild dehydration can prevent the kidneys from detoxing the blood, so staying hydrated with sufficient water is so important. I have written more on the importance of water and staying hydrated here!
Stabilizes blood sugar and is an antiviral.
The benefits of this natural home-remedy detoxification are numerous. I personally drink this every morning to get my morning started off on the right foot. I find that I am not as hungry when I have this first thing in the morning. I also tend to drink more water all day long, and I feel it takes away any bloat. My cravings decrease as well. I promise adding a sprinkle of cinnamon and stevia makes it so much more palatable, and it becomes an acquired taste. The benefits are worth it as well! Give it a try, I can’t wait to hear what you think!
What do you do first thing in the morning?
