NATURAL ENERGY DRINK RECIPE
- Filtered Distilled water 12 oz. (or freshly brewed black tea – any type, must be black… chai tastes the best to me)

- Cayenne 1/8 tsp.
- Cinnamon 1/2 tsp.

NATURAL ENERGY DRINK INGREDIENTS
Here’s why this magic mood and energy drink works. Hint the ingredients are energy boosting all-stars.
Using black tea is optional BUT if you want an extra energizing kick-in-the-pants, I’d recommend using it. An 8-ounce cup of black tea provides 60 to 90 milligrams of caffeine — about half the amount of caffeine in a cup of coffee… but won’t give you the tired-yet-wired feeling because unlike coffee tea doesn’t have any mycotoxins (aka an inflammatory microfungus/mold). There are many varieties, such as Chai and black tea blends such as Earl Gray or English Breakfast. Avoid using flavored teas to make this energy drink. Flavored teas have chemicals that can make you crash.
APPLE CIDER VINEGAR
Raw, unpasteurized apple cider vinegar helps maintain a healthy alkaline pH level. Although acidic outside of the body, ACV is alkalizing in the body. Research shows that higher acid levels lead to a lack of energy. The alkalizing effect of the ACV will help you get natural energy.
Ginger helps dilate your pores and arteries which helps boost circulation. Blood flow can help you feel more energized in a way that starts on the inside and radiates out.
Cinnamon can boost your energy levels because it contains a blood glucose regulator called methylhydroxychalcone polymer*. Cinnamon helps prevent you from feeling a crash and helps regulate energy over an extended period of time.
Honey is a great natural source of carbohydrates and is known for its effectiveness in instantly boosting the performance, endurance and reduce muscle fatigue of athletes. Honey possesses natural antioxidant and therapeutic properties that help enhance the brain’s parasympathetic nervous system and circulation resulting in more energy and a sense of well-being for you.
FRESH LEMON JUICE
Fresh squeezed lemon is one of the best and well-tested energy boosters around. Lemon produces energizes your body because it’s alkalizing and oxygenates the body. Extraordinary energy and mental clarity is a proved side effect of ingesting freshly squeezed lemon juice.
Drink every day for more natural energy without any hard crashes.
