Lemon, Molasses, Cayenne Morning Tonic

Morning coffee? Nope! Fortunately, I never adopted that habit. However, I do love the taste of coffee and have found a new way to enjoy a warm, welcoming morning mineral tonic, that can be coffee-ish, if I so choose. Check this out...

I drink this mineral tonic each morning on an empty stomach.

Morning Tonic
1 quart mason jar filled with hot water
Juice of 1 lemon
1/2 t vitamin C powder (optional)
1 Tablespoon blackstrap molasses, unsulphured
Dash of cayenne

For Caramel Coffee Mineral Tonic Add:
1/4 teaspoon ceylon cinnamon
3 drops Medicine Flower Coffee Extract
3 drops Medicine Flower Caramel Extract
Sunrder Stevie (or your favorite sweetener)


The following benefits have been reported -
Lemon - supports immune system, aids in digestion, reduces appetite, repairs skin, balances pH levels, freshens breath, helps absorb iron. detoxifies liver, and more.

Molasses (unsulphured blackstrap) - has a low glycemic index, and is chock full of minerals like calcium, magnesium, manganese, copper, zinc, iron and potassium. It also contains folate (a natural source of folic acid), along with some B vitamins. You get quite a bang for your buck in this super amazing food.

Cayenne - Contains many anti-irritant properties and may aid with upset stomach, sore throat, diarrhea, ulcers, etc. Cayenne has anti-fungal properties, and may be helpful with migraine headaches. Other benefits are potential an anti-allergen, digestive aid, blood cleanser/thinner, detoxifying, joint pain relief and protection against cancer.

Ceylon Cinnamon - (True cinnamon) While ceylon cinnamon is typically more expensive then cassia, it is worthwhile purchasing as it is associated with more potential health benefits.
A Type 2 diabetes study found that 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon per day significantly reduces blood sugar levels in people with type 2 diabetes. It also reduces triglycerides, LDL cholesterol and overall cholesterol levels of people in this same group.

Other benefits include:
-Supports digestive function
-Constricts and tones tissues
-Relieves congestion
-Relieves pain and stiffness of muscles and joints
-Relieves menstrual discomfort
-Blood-thinning compounds that stimulate circulation
-Anti-inflammatory compounds that may relieve arthritis
-Helps prevent urinary tract infections, tooth decay and gum disease
-It’s a powerful anti-microbial agent that can kill E. coli and other bacteria

As you can see, combining these ingredients together, creates a wonderful Morning Tonic. Sip slowly and enjoy!

With all of that goodness - vary the flavor of any smoothie or tonic with these magnificent extracts.
