This drink is alkalizing, detoxifying and did I mention, delicious? It tastes like lemonade and is oh-so-good for your body. Start off your day with this drink to get things "moving" and bring your body into balance.
The lemon and apple cider vinegar are alkalizing (on a scale of 0-14, with 0 = very acidic and 14 = very alkaline, we want the pH of our bodies to be as close to 7.4 as possible.
To achieve this, aim for your daily food intake to be approximately 80% alkaline & 20% acidic), the cayenne pepper boosts the immune system, improves circulation (you'll warm right up), aids in the elimination of toxins, and the stevia adds a bit of sweetness without contributing to the detrimental effects of conventional sweeteners.

- Juice from 1/2 lemon
