Drink your Morning Detox Tea right after you wake up to eliminate toxins, stimulate metabolic processes, strengthen immunity, and alkalize your body.
The ingredients included in this recipe work in a synergy, and you get excellent results in very short time. Lemon essential oil supports natural detoxification, and it improves the function of your liver and kidneys.
Experts say that this oil also improves the flow of blood, and strengthens the immune system. Lemons may seem acidic, but these citruses are actually one of the most alkalizing foods you will ever eat. Eat more lemons to bring your pH values on the alkaline side, preferably somewhere around 7.4. Cinnamon lowers the levels of glucose and fructose, and prevents the development of fatty liver disease.
Capsaicin in cayenne pepper neutralizes the substance P, a type of neuropeptide that triggers inflammation. Cayenne stimulates circulation, and toxins are carried away from the damaged part.
Ginger is one of the most powerful anti-inflammatory agents. It’s an excellent diaphoretic, meaning it increases perspiration, and boosts the natural detox process in the body. A group of German researchers has found a natural antibiotic in human sweat, called dermcidin. It wards off bacterial, fungal, viral and microbial infections. Ginger also builds up a strong immune system.
