Naturally Nourished Adrenal Rehab Elixir
NATURALLY NOURISHED ADRENAL REHAB ELIXIR
FOOD AS MEDICINE:
This electrolyte balancing formula boosts the adrenal glands, aiding in favorable cortisol response and regulating aldosterone, which plays a role in hydration and blood pressure stability. The lemon combined with the buffered vitamin C provides a fuel boost to the adrenal glands. The bioflavonoids in the lemon promote the lymphatic tissue to cleanse, further supporting the liver and thyroid to support detox and metabolism. This elixir tastes like lemon cream pie and is a great post-workout refuel shaken over ice! You can even add a scoop or two of collagen for extra connective tissue and hair skin and nail support!
2 lemons, peeled but maintaining the white pith
2 cups coconut water
⅓ cup full fat coconut milk
⅔ cup filtered water
2.5 grams vitamin C (open 4 of my Bio-C Plus capsules)
1 teaspoon organic turmeric powder
1 tablespoon virgin coconut oil
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 tablespoon raw unfiltered honey
Quarter lemons and remove seeds. Blend lemons with coconut water, coconut milk, and water until mixed well.
Once combined, add remaining ingredients and blend on high until smooth and creamy. In a mason jar, pour mixture over ice and shake to cool and create a nice frothy head.
