If you’re anything like me you might crave a cup of coffee as soon as you open your eyes in the morning. Today, I’m here to tell you to ditch your morning coffee to give your stomach and digestive tract a break.
Drinking coffee on an empty stomach can wreak havoc on your body. Coffee's acidity can disrupts your stomach’s natural pH balance, which is needed to properly breakdown and digest foods. Too much stomach acid over time can lead to damaging conditions such as heartburn, stomach ulcers, & irritable bowel syndrome.
Start with this morning remedy that will cleanse and detox your body while providing you with the energy needed to go about your day:
1/2 medium sized lemon (preferably organic)
1 tablespoon of Bragg's Apple Cider Vinegar
1 teaspoon of raw organic honey
1/8 teaspoon of Cayenne Pepper
1 cup of warm water
Now to the good part…
Relieves indigestion & constipation
Reduces abdominal bloating
Stabilizes blood sugar
Naturally lowers cholesterol
Acts as an antioxidant
Boosts Immune System function
Cutting out coffee all together may sound a bit extreme, which I definitely understand because I’m a coffee lover myself. By replacing your morning brew just a few times a week with this morning detox recipe, your body will get the well deserved break it needs. Give it a try! Trust me, your body will thank you 😃
