The Ingredients


This drink contains some of the best ingredients for detoxification. Apple cider vinegar has shown to help improve your metabolism and digestive function, while working to cleanse your liver and lymphatic system.

Lemon juice has an alkaline effect on your body and helps to regulate your pH levels. Drinking lemon water, or adding it to your drinks and juices, can boost your energy levels, detoxify your body, keep skin glowing and improve immune function.

Cinnamon, cayenne pepper and ginger contain therapeutic compounds that help to reduce inflammation, aide digestion and boost your metabolism, which is a helpful step toward weight loss. That’s why drinking ginger tea, for example, is so popular. It contains valuable compounds that boost your health and promote detoxification.

An optional ingredient for your detox drink is raw honey. I like to add raw honey to many of my health drinks and detox smoothie recipes because it’s a nutrient-dense natural sweetener. It adds a little sweetness to this drink while nourishing the body with antioxidants.

How to Make This Drink


Step One – Warm 16 oz of filtered water.

Step Two – Add 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar to your cup of warm water.

Step Three – Stir in ½ to 1 teaspoon of ground ginger, ¼ teaspoon of cinnamon and a dash of cayenne pepper.

Step Four – Add the last two ingredients which are, 2 tablespoons of lemon juice and 1 teaspoon of raw, local honey, which is optional, but will add a little sweetness to your drink.

Stir it all together, and your detox drink is ready to enjoy. I like to have it when it’s still warm, but you can drink it at any temperature.
