Gosh, Christmas is still a week and a half away and I feel like I’m already indulging in too many sweets. Sugar is one of those all-or-nothing things for me, and once I have a small bite of cake, 20 minutes later, you’ll see me with an empty cake platter and looking for what other dessert I can get my sweet tooth on. The addiction is real! Thank goodness for my New Year sugar detox class! I will definitely be joining in with my participants.
Today, I want to talk about the benefits of apple cider vinegar, and how amazing incorporating this Digest & Detox Tea has been for my digestion, energy level, and just overall well-being. Especially during a time when we are all indulging a bit too much, it becomes even more important to take care of ours bodies and practice light detoxification. I usually feel pretty crappy with too much sugar from my candida issues but it has been quite manageable this season by drinking this tea every morning.
The secret ingredient? Apple cider vinegar! Apple cider vinegar is one of my favorite cooking staples and I use it everyday, even in my skin care routine. It has so many health benefits and it differs from regular white vinegar in that it’s made from apples (duh) and that it’s been fermented. For true healing benefits, make sure that the label says “raw”, “unfiltered”, and “with the mother.” The “mother” means that it has gone through a true fermentation process.
Here are just some of the benefits:
- Aids in detoxification
- Known to lower blood sugar
- Improves digestion by increasing stomach acid production
- Contains anti-fungal and anti-bacterial components (that’s why it’s GREAT for candida overgrowth!)
- May increase satiety so you avoid overeating
- Balances the pH of the skin when used topically, making it a great toner!
This Digest & Detox tea also includes ingredients that boosts these internal benefits and more, like ginger, lemon juice, cinnamon, honey, and cayenne. All of these have been shown to be especially health promoting for digestion and detox, and that’s why this powerhouse combination will help you feel amazing!
- 2 cups of water
- 5 thinly sliced raw ginger
- ¼ tsp ground cinnamon
- 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar (raw, unfiltered)
- Juice from ½ lemon
- 2 tsp raw honey or maple syrup (or more, to taste)
- Pinch of cayenne
- In a saucepan over medium high heat, combine water, ginger slices, and cinnamon. Once it comes to boil, turn down the heat to low and simmer for 10 minutes.
- Remove from heat, add the rest of the ingredients, and stir.
- Strain, pour into a mug, and serve warm.
