* HOW DOES IT WORK?
- Lemon – Made with whole lemons including bioflavonoid rich peel for additional antioxidant power.
- Cayenne – Fresh freeze-dried whole cayenne provides a warming sensation to the digestive system*; some find that it increases metabolism, stimulates the circulatory system, aids digestion, and helps regulate blood sugar
- Maple Syrup – rich in essential nutrients such as manganese as well as zinc; Journal of Clinical Nutrition in 2007 found that maple syrup contains polyphenols thought to stimulate insulin release through pancreatic cells.”
I am a reallllllllly big proponent for doing things on a daily basis to help facilitate efficient digestion and detoxification in the body. Healthy digestion and effective detox does so much for body your daily wellness and your longevity in the big picture.
Lemon is a fruit that is alkaline-forming in the body and helps your body stay calibrated and stay at a healthy pH. I’ve known for a while now that cayenne does some good work on your metabolism (hey, cool!) and have had maple syrup on my radar–it has always intrigued me by being a source of sugar yet having properties that help balance blood sugar.
Thus, I found this Lemon-Aid product by Detox RX to be a pretty wonderful idea–especially in the way they did it! The lemon is freeze-dried to preserve the healing plant enzymes in the lemon and they use the whole lemon (most of the calcium in citrus is found in the peel).
As the suggest on the label, this powdered mixture does have a bit of a spice to it and is very zesty! So, in my case, I came up with this to consume it as a part of my everyday detox routine:
-A few teaspoons of the Lemon-Aid powdered mixture
-2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar
-2 drops of liquid stevia
-Combine all ingredients into 16 ounces of water
I found that since the powder is pungent in itself, it worked for me to couple it with the ACV to take in both robust potions in one swig. The stevia helps take the edge off of the tart lemon and harsh-tasting vinegar.
I’ve experimented with some intermittent fasting in the mornings (consuming only this mixture and no food until about 11am). I didn’t expect it, but I felt immensely energized, lighter and free from bloating and stomach discomfort.
I also particularly love the fact that this a great way to take your detox routine on the road with you. It’s an okay size to pack and will allow you to keep your system going strong: alkaline and clean.
