Lemon Water

I was addicted to energy drinks and couldn't break the cycle and I tried drinking lemon water upon awakening and sort of fasted in the morning for a few days and then finally I had clean energy! Gotta get organic lemons and clean healthy water makes the difference as well. You can kick the caffeine cycle you just gotta stick with it and try lemons!

Green juice will give you extra energy and increase your red blood cells - wheat grass, a mix of veggies ( I like kale or spinach and a little bit of pineapple, or kale and grapes, or apples for a little bit of sweetness) chlorophyll, chlorella. I love the wheat grass juice during the day, I buy it in powder form - keep in mind it's recommended to drink it first thing in the morning, just like coffee on an empty stomach for better absorption, I have around 4 glasses during the day, it gives me great energy.

To Adri.

I suspect you may be right! Can you think of taking a different drink AFTER you have your coffee perhaps (if you must! ) in order to counteract the Coffee effects? I wish I could give up my daily coffee too but I enjoy it too much! Some say the occasional coffee (and Dark Chocolate) is good for us. The pesticide angle worries me though, (as with TEA) so Organic would best. Don't go down the decaf route though-that has other problems.

Cheers, Michael

I have a question. I drink hot water with lemon and ACV and then 15 minutes later I have a coffee.. Is that bad cause I need my coffee. I'm just wondering if I'm doing its counterproductive. Thank you

There are many very good natural energy boosters, finding most of them in one product is difficult, but I will list a few.

-Tyrosine *may raise blood pressure*
-Bee Pollen

Herbs like:
-Cordyceps Sinensis
-Bitter Orange (may raise blood pressure)

I saw your post on Instagram about energy drink alternatives. I know a lot of people using them for high caffeine and buzz factor. Red Bull is very popular at my school. If anyone has any other suggestions for alternatives, please share. I don't think lemon water will wake me up enough hah.
