Very impressive for just water with some lemons. Yet this is just a small list of all the amazing benefits of drinking lemon juice in the mornings.

Apple cider vinegar for a healthy liver and heart
This one is for those of you who love to booze! Just kidding. Apple cider vinegar is alkaline in nature which helps neutralising all the acidic content accumulated in your body due to stress, unhealthy foods and environmental distress. It also plays a crucial role in detoxifying your liver thus providing you with a healthy, active mind, as well as the added bonus preventing cardiovascular diseases plus many other surprising benefits that can change your life.
For best effects of apple cider vinegar, I suggest you to buy one that is raw, unfiltered and of the organic variety. Either mix a small amount of it in warm water, or try having it mixed with your salad or meals. Bragg Organic Raw Apple Cider Vinegar is one of the more popular with great reviews.
Time to try some supplements
Weather supplements are bad or not, there is no denying the tremendous benefits they bring to our modern diet. Specially since our foods and soils lack the required nutrients they once had.
Supplements are the closest way of cheating the nutritional system that you can ever come across. They offer a rapid and concentrated delivery of nutrients to your body while typical foods need days to properly digest and be used by the body. They also help eliminating toxins from your body, like spirulina, chlorella and zinc.
Bodybuilders can especially benefit of supplements since they required more nutrients to fully sustain their size without going into deficit. There are supplements proven to work amazingly and rapidly. Like L-Arginine an amino acid that cause an increase in the levels of nitric oxide (NO) which helps the body move more oxygen into the muscles where they need it the most, creating muscle growth rapidly.
Other great supplements are L-Carnitine, Creatine, Beta-Alanine, Citrulline Malate, Tyrosine as well as Alcar. They are special favorites for a lot of power builders.
All this said, there is no replacement for whole foods. Think it this way. Whole foods will give you 80 percent of the results while supplements will give you the other 20.
Get more herbs and vegetables into your diet
Incorporating some of the herbs, fruits and vegetables in your morning routine will help in the cleansing of your kidney as well as liver thus providing you overall detoxification and health.
Dandelion root, parsley, licorice root, cilantro, red pepper, grapefruit, sea vegetables, garlic, artichokes, wheatgrass, milk thistle, and cruciferous vegetables, all these contain bundles of detoxification properties for you. Plus most vegetables help you fight cancer . A regular routine for some months, and you will be amused to see the eventual results and benefits.
How about some activated charcoal detox?
As weird as it may sound, activated charcoal has been used for 1000’s of years in Chinese medication for an effective detoxification of the body and mind. Gas, bloating, digestion issues, ageing, or heart health, you name a general problem and charcoal has the key to solve it.
Nowadays, you can find coconut charcoal capsules that are easily available in the nearest drug store without costing you much amount. The toxins from low quality processed food, or environmental pollution are easily removed by consuming this remedy and take a note down of this, I assure you, you won’t be disappointed.
These are some of the solutions I found to work in my everyday problems, I am certain they will help you too with whatever you might be struggling with. All you need is regularity in your schedule and a bit of patience to see the results and feel the changes.
