Vitamin C Water
A 4-ingredient hydrating beverage that brings you back to life
Squeeze the juice of 2 oranges + 1 lemon into 16 ounces of water. Add 1/8 teaspoon of sea salt, stir, sip & perk up!!
Pro-tip: Zest the oranges + lemon before squeezing & read below on a fun way to use that zest!
WHY IT WORKS
Research suggests vitamin C may help slow mitochondrial aging. Young cells = more energy.
Research finds even just the scent of citrus is energizing. PS: You can even use citrus essential oils to dab on your wrist or sniff when your energy is low.
Water comprises >70% of our brain making it essential for memory, mood & motivation. Even mild dehydration impairs many aspects of brain function.
Adding a little sea salt turns this into a natural sports drink. The 1/8 tsp of sea salt adds about 300mg of the electrolyte sodium, which helps get water into your cells QUICKER than water alone.
USE THAT ZEST!
Here’s a genius idea: Zest your citrus fruits BEFORE squeezing them. Then use that zest to make…CITRUS SALT!
CITRUS SALT: Mix equal parts citrus zest + sea salt, spread it out on a plate or sheet pan until the zest is dry, and then store in a jar at room temp for up to 3 months.
Sprinkle citrus salt on grilled veggies, salads, popcorn, or add to the rim of your margarita glass!!
