What Makes this Drink So Special

1. Lemon

Lemons have astringent qualities and are alkalizing, even though before you consume them they’re acidic. Consuming lemons and other Vitamin C rich foods assist with iron absorption which means more sustainable energy, because if your iron stores are low, you’re sure to feel fatigued. Lemons can also stimulate the liver, promoting detox and a clearer complexion. Unless you suffer from heartburn or another GI issue, drinking lemon water daily can be extremely rewarding and give you a bit of a glow!

2. Apple Cider Vinegar

Apple cider vinegar is an age old remedy for literally dozens of health issues. Just check out this post 35 Awesome Ways to Use Apple Cider Vinegar for more ideas. “ACV” is often used to combat acid reflux caused by an underproduction of stomach acid, but that’s not all.

It’s commonly consumed because it’s rich in enzymes and helps to balance the bacteria in the gut, which of course leads to healthier, more beautiful looking skin. Some people consume apple cider vinegar in their morning drinks daily and have the most gorgeous skin ever. Diabetics may turn to this potent elixir to help lower their blood sugar and augment their insulin response.
