Many of us are not the biggest fans of cleansing. However, I would venture to say we are all fans of improving our health through our daily actions. The simpler the better. Perhaps you have heard the renowned health benefits of drinking a glass of (room temp or warm) lemon water or lemon & cayenne water each morning on an empty stomach.
Here are some highlights:
• Gets things “moving” in the morning
• Skin clearing benefits
• Supports UT health
• Weight management – pectin in the lemons and/or the cayenne pepper itself naturally make us feel more full and speed up metabolism
• Vitamin C – pump up your immune system
• Can help reduce uric acid in joints (a main cause of pain)
• Liver cleansing
• Supports circulation
• Helps regulate healthy blood sugar
So here’s the “challenge”: Drink 1 (8-12 oz.) glass of Vibrant Cleanse every morning on an empty stomach. Ideally drink another 8 oz. of plain water before consuming any food for most impact. The idea is to add drinking cleanse into your morning ritual for 1 whole month (April) and notice if you feel any benefit(s) from doing so. If you want this to replace your breakfast – go for it – but it doesn’t have to. You may need to add more water, lemon juice, or less powder to your mixture to make it suit your taste buds. Who knows, this may become your best morning routine yet!
