We all need a little kick start in the morning to get us going; whether is a shot of espresso or a cup of black coffee. Early mornings really are better with a little energy boost. If trying to get a little energy boost and in the same time alkalize and kick start your metabolism in the early hours replace your normal espresso with one of these healthy espresso shots.
1. Wheatgrass Shot
Wheatgrass shots are extremely intense; since these little green shoots contain the highest amount of living chlorophyll and 17 amino acids. Also, chlorophyll purifies the body and the liver and helps in fighting unfriendly bacteria. Wheatgrass also improves digestion. The juice has the full nutrients only when consumed fresh and the best time to consume it is in the morning on an empty stomach.
2. Ginger Shot
A ginger shot is very body warming. It is anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and contains a lot of antioxidants. The gingerols, or the anti-inflammatory compounds in ginger, fight cancer and boost the immunity. If pure ginger is too strong, juice a little green apple then add it to the ginger shot. It makes a great combo.
3. Ginger+Lemon+Oregano Oil
If u want to take a little twist from the classic Ginger Shot try mixing a little lemon juice and drop of Oregano Oil. For example, Oregano oil is anti-microbial and kills infections in the body and has antibacterial and antiviral properties and together with ginger and lemon that have immune supportive properties makes a great morning tonic.
4. E3 Live Shot
The Blue Green Algae is the very first protein on the Earth and the most nutrient dense food created by nature. For instance, it contains more than 65 vitamins and minerals, more chlorophyll than wheatgrass and essential fatty acids. They call it the miracle food. Also, it increases energy and vitality and helps digestion and intestinal health.
5. Turmeric Shot
Turmeric comes from a root called Curcuma. Moreover, it has been known for its health benefits-prevents premature aging, helps depression and it is full of antioxidants. It has a nice earthy flavor and helps with good digestion. In addition, mix it with ginger and cayenne to make a good morning shot.
