3-Ingredient Health “Shots” To Detox Your Body, Lose Weight, and Energize Your System

3healthshots loading...

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

These health shots are simple, quick, and wake your body up. 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. 

You’ll need:

  • 2 cups of organic spinach
  • ¼ cup 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

You’ll need:

  • ½ an ounce of lemon juice
  • ½ an ounce of organic apple cider vinegar
  • A pinch of cayenne pepper
  • 2 ounces of water (to taste)  

Lemon juice and apple cider vinegar both support your liver and digestion to keep things moving. 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 water will help dilute the acidity!

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
  • 2 ounces of water (to taste)

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.

It’s important to ensure that we support our detoxification organs as much 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!

A quick note from our founder

I wanted to tell you about a better and far easier way to get all your daily nutritional needs and then some into your diet...

It's so incredible, I've done the unthinkable. YES, I sold my juicer--never to juice again!

And NO I am not spending good money on outrageously expensive smoothies at those high-priced franchises or shots of wheatgrass at $5 a pop.

No this is way easier and cheaper…

In fact, each serving takes just 30 seconds to make and contains all your daily nutrition needs and more-- and at the same time, costs JUST $1.36 per serving.

You can make a glass in a snap, with water or almond milk and just a spoon or a water bottle.

Maybe best of all, each serving contains no sugar and there's no gag-reflex from the yucky taste of the dreaded green foam : )
