5 Superfoods to Eat and Drink Each Day For an Amazing Health Transformation in the New YearWhat if I told you that five heavily researched super foods that have been consumed for thousands of years could make a huge difference to your health, longevity, muscle mass, fat loss, skin rejuvenation, and brain performance?

This is true!

When you begin introducing these 5 superfoods into your diet, start with the recommended serving size, or even less, and slowly increase the amount you consume over a couple of weeks. Then, you’ll want keep at it for a few months in order to get maximum benefits. Here’s the list!

Apple Cider Vinegar

There are a number of benefits to consuming apple cider vinegar on a regular basis, many of which can improve your daily life. Apple cider vinegar can help you maintain normal blood sugar levels, and lower your cholesterol and blood pressure. Other benefits that are more noticeable are weight loss, improved skin health, and reduction in acid reflux. Apple cider vinegar can be consumed in 1 tablespoon amounts mixed into 6 ounces of water and consumed 15 minutes before a meal once a day to begin. You may want to make this your largest meal of the day.  Eventually do this before two meals daily.

Chlorella

Chlorella, taken in tablet form, can provide a lot of benefits to the body, including having a detoxifying effect, helping you lose weight, and lowering your blood sugar and cholesterol. It’s important to be aware that chlorella can cause side effects (extremely rarely) which some people may be susceptible to, such as upset stomach. The dosage amount is ⅓ the dose indicated on the bottle with a glass of clean water once per day to start.  Eventually, build to a full dose taken all at once or divided over the day.   

Spirulina

Spirulina, which is considered a “biomass of cyanobacteria,” or blue-green algae, can be taken in supplement form as a tablet, flakes, or powder. It can also be derived from a variety of whole foods. Spirulina has a range of benefits for the physical body as it’s known to detoxify heavy metals, heal candida, boost energy, promote weight loss, improve sinus health, and so many more things! Note that spirulina should be purchased from a reputable source to ensure quality ingredients and minimize potential side effects. Start with a teaspoon sized amount added to any food, salad, smoothie, etc.  Eventually build to a tablespoon once per day.  

Ground Pink Himalayan Salt

Known as the cleanest salt available on earth, pink himalayan salt is harvested from mines deep beneath the Himalayan Mountains. This potent salt contains anywhere from 60-84 trace minerals that provide benefits to our bodies. Some benefits of ground pink himalayan salt include improvement to respiratory problems, balanced pH levels in the body, air purification, improved sleep, and more. It can be used as a table salt replacement, through exposure to a salt lamp, in homemade body scrubs, and more. Just be sure that you purchase from a reputable source to maximize your benefits.

Fresh Lemon Water

Fresh lemon water is easy to make and consume, and it offers a ton of great benefits. It can aid in digestion and detoxification, rejuvenate skin, boost energy and mood, and even contribute to weight loss, among many other things. It can be consumed on an empty stomach at the start of the day (which is what I recommend), as well as throughout the day. When making it, ensure that your lemons are fresh and organic. Simply add half a lemon’s worth of juice to 8 ounces of water. (Room temperature or warmer water may be easier to digest.)

Eat.  Grow younger.  Drink.  Look younger.  Eat and drink.  Live longer, stronger, and thrive.
