3-Ingredient Health “Shots” To Alkalize Your Body, Lose Weight, and Energize Your System (Recipes included)

Have you ever woken up in the morning and just felt like staying in bed? Your body is stiff, tired, and all it wants to do is lay down. Most people reach for a pot of coffee to give them the jolt of caffeine to get their day started, but this isn’t the healthiest thing for your body first thing in the morning.

In the morning your body is at its most acidic point, which is actually normal. While an acidic body is never good, your body undergoes different processes as you sleep which release acids into your system. This is one of the reasons why your body feels groggy, and adding more acid (with coffee) isn’t the best idea.

Health Shots For Your Morning

So instead of starting your day with a coffee, alkaline your body! These health shots are simple, quick, and wake your body up so to speak. They’ll energize you naturally and get you off to a great start in the morning.

Green Smoothie Shot

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

You’ll need:

  • 2 cups of organic spinach
  • ¼ of frozen organic blueberries
  • 1 slice of ginger

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 alkaline your body.

You’ll need:

  • ½ an ounce of lemon juice
  • ½ an ounce of organic apple cider vinegar
  • A pinch of cayenne pepper

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. If you can’t handle straight vinegar and lemon juice in the morning, try adding 2 ounces of water.


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.

You’ll need:

  • A pinch of organic ground ginger
  • ½ an ounce of lemon juice
  • ½ an ounce of organic apple cider vinegar

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 water to make it easier to swallow.

It’s important to ensure that we keep our bodies as alkaline as possible to keep it healthy and disease free. It’s also important that we ensure our bodies get all the nutrients it needs first thing in the morning, after repairing and healing itself while we slept. These shots are an easy and quick way to give us a great start to our day. Enjoy!
