“This is how I optimally start each day... Ginger steeps and releases Vit C, magnesium, potassium, copper, and manganese. It is traditionally used to relieve gastrointestinal issues like gas and nausea. It is a super food because of it's high antioxidant content, anti-inflammatory properties, helping to reduce your risk of cancer, and promoting sweating (hello toxin removal!) thereby enhancing your immune system naturally... Lemons are a great source of thiamin, riboflavin, patothenic acid, iron, magnesium, Vit C, B6, calcium, potassium, and copper. Their high Vit C content will help relieve more inflammatory conditions, and reduce risk of cancer. Add peace and quiet, maybe a few deep breathes (see note) and enjoy!”
