This is literally the healthiest shot you’ll ever take. It improves gut function, strengthens the immune system, can help clear skin, improves/eliminates allergies and can even reduce and prevent wrinkles, stretch marks and cellulite!
You’re probably wondering how that’s all possible. So I’m going to break the ingredients down for ya.
APPLE CIDER VINEGAR
ACV is loaded with beneficial enzymes and bacteria. It can also help kill off harmful pathogens and bacteria. Evidence has shown it to be beneficial for those with type 2 diabetes. ACV is made up of acetic acid and therefore a shot of it can help reduce heartburn. This is because heartburn is actually caused by a lack of acid.
Because ACV is packed with beneficial enzymes and bacteria and can help kill off harmful pathogens in the gut, it will boost the immune system. Roughly 90% of the immune system is in the gut, so when our gut is healthy – we are healthy. In addition, the acetic acid in ACV can help kill of candida, which can cause anxiety, depression, acne, fatigue, foggy brain, eczema, etc.
I only recommend this brand of apple cider vinegar.
Lemon is loaded with vitamin C, which you likely already know is good for the immune system and helps ward off sickness. But studies have shown that the polyphenols in lemon suppress weight gain and fat accumulation.
Lemon encourages the liver to produce enzymes as well as bile, which will in turn promote digestion and more effectively remove toxins from your system. Lemon is a diuretic, meaning it promotes urination – which is another way the body flushes toxins.
You can find the collagen hydrolysate I recommend here. It is rich in the amino acids glycine and proline, which are especially beneficial for bones, joints, cartilage, skin cells, hair and nails. Around the age of 25, the collagen our bodies produce begins to rapidly decline. This is why we start to see wrinkles, cellulite, stretch marks and sallow skin. Supplementing with collagen helps prevent this. Expensive spas even sell collagen treatments they apply to the skin, which is worthless because the skin cannot absorb collagen. It has to be taken internally.
Collagen hydrolysate also heals the gut lining. Many people suffer from leaky gut, or at least a compromised gut due to the diet we’ve been fed since childhood. If you’re anything like me, you grew up on white bread, white sugar, margarine and some cheap lunch meat. Healing the gut strengthens the immune system.
There are so many benefits of raw honey. Raw honey is naturally high in beneficial enzymes but even contains some minerals like zinc, potassium and magnesium. Raw honey can even be used topically to disinfect a wound.
Raw honey has anti-viral, anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties, making it great for the gut (remember – majority of health ailments begin in the gut). It can reduce or even eliminate seasonal allergies, boost the immune system, aid digestion and reduce inflammation.
Raw honey also tastes amazing and despite containing sugar, it will not spike your blood sugar.
If you can’t find truly raw honey near you, you can order it here.
Optional Add Ons:
- Himalayan salt – rich in minerals and great for the adrenals.
- cayenne pepper – there’s some evidence CP can promote weight loss and is a natural fat burner. It’s anti-inflammatory, boosts metabolism and is beneficial to the cardiovascular system.
- 1.5 cups filtered water (I use this filter)
- 7 tbsp apple cider vinegar
- juice of one lemon
- 5 tbsp of collagen
- 1 tbsp of raw honey
- Combine and shake.
- Store in a glass container in the fridge.
- This makes about five servings, which you can pour into a shot glass and take once a day.
- *I make this every Sunday to drink throughout the week.
