When I became a health coach, I began to question my vitamin and supplement pantry, just like I would question any ingredients that are in packaged food. I began experimenting with natural antioxidant, anti-inflammatory ingredients that are rich in minerals. Ingredients like ginger, turmeric, pineapple!
These are common foods that are found in local groceries and green markets. Ones that were at the time taken for granted and not as cherished as they are today in the nutrition world.
Whenever I feel cold symptoms creeping up on me or my family, or perhaps when I am experiencing workout discomfort and need a pick me up – I turned to these ingredients for the cure.
In no time at all I created the perfect remedy and my first Shot was born –
Immunity Wellness Shot.
These Shots are quick hits of concentrated nutrition. Made from Ginger, Pineapple, lime, parsley and Turmeric. Although the quantity of liquid is small, it’s potent, gives you a burst of energy almost immediately, and boosts the immune system.
Here is why I use lime, ginger, and turmeric!
Lime is an immune system booster and provides a concentrated dose of vitamin C to the body. They are natural detoxifiers and have a diuretic effect. Limes are extremely alkaline which makes them great for balancing the pH of the body. Also I use limes in all my shots as it helps to preserve the drink giving it a lifespan of about 3 months.
Ginger root is anti-inflammatory, anti-septic, anti-viral, anti-histamine, it’s powerful! Ginger relieves body aches and pains, and settles the stomach.
Turmeric is a powerful anti-inflammatory root that can help to decrease muscle soreness after an intense workout. It also helps detox the liver and neutralizes free radicals which can lead to wrinkles, cellulite, and fatigue.
Here are my line of shots and what each one has to offer your body a strong dose of Nutrition that you would normally not receive from your everyday foods. You can take these shots in many different combinations to address different ailments:
