If you’ve been struggling to find motivation to become stronger and healthier we have great news!
Your liver is your body’s primary organ of detoxification; when it’s not well, neither are you. The human liver filters drugs, nutrients and toxins from the body, produces bile to help digest fats, and removes toxic bilirubin from the blood. And if you eat a healthy diet, it shouldn’t need any extra help.
But Few people eat a high-quality diet consistently, though. If you are one of them, you may want to consider a lemon liver detox. You make a detox lemonade to put the pep back in your step and boost your immune system.
What makes the detox lemonade work so well is the combination of ingredients that go into it. In addition to the immune system boost from the Vitamin C in the lemons, the recipe also includes cayenne pepper and honey.
The combined power of these two ingredients works to cut down on inflammation while aiding with digestion as well. Not to mention the cloves and the ginger which both include antioxidants and a range of other benefits! But enough details, you’ll have to try it yourself. Here’s what you’ll need:
-1 teaspoon honey
-pinch of cayenne pepper
-pinch of ground ginger
-1 cup of hot water
-slice of lemon
First, you’ll want to cut a lemon in half and squeeze the juice out of it into a mug of your choice. Though you’ll only need one lemon, feel free to add more lemon juice for the right amount of bite.
Next, pour in a teaspoon of honey (though again, nobody will know if you add a little bit more to get the balance of sweet and sour just right). After that, add your pinch of cayenne and your pinch of ground cloves and stir the entire mixture together.
Finally, add one cup of hot water and garnish the drink with a slice of lemon. After letting it cool to an appropriate temperature, sit back and enjoy!
