Did you know that you can DRINK baking soda to better your health?
Baking soda acts as a PH buffer, making sure substances aren’t too alkaline or too acidic. Its ability to neutralize the PH of substances that it comes in contact with makes it highly effective for many things. Many of you have probably heard of using baking soda around the home, but you can use it for health reasons as well!
Today we will be sharing a recipe with you that acts as an Energy Booster & Electrolyte Replacer
Do you know that nagging, dragging feeling you get when you are about halfway through your 5-run, or partway through that spin class? The feeling like you can’t push your body one bit more?
This ultimate energy booster tonic will not only help motivate you to get moving, it will also help you go harder for longer no matter what physical activity you are doing.
This is because strenuous exercise leads to a buildup of lactic acid – which can cause muscle pain and fatigue. Baking soda has been found to boost performance in athletes due to its ability to neutralize lactic acid buildup.

- ½ cup lemon juice

- Add other ingredients and pour mixture into glass jar.
- Shake well before use.
- This will keep for a week in the refrigerator.
Why Pure Coconut Water and Raw Honey?
Coconut water: Although coconut water has a deceptively light consistency, it has higher levels of minerals such as iron, magnesium, manganese, calcium and zinc than many fruits, including the famously healthy orange. Additionally, coconut water has high amounts of B-vitamins, such as niacin, thiamin, riboflavin and pyridoxine.
One of the best benefits of coconut water is that it is extremely high in potassium. As your body sweats during exercise or vigorous physical activity, your level of potassium drops. Coconut water has approximately 250 milligrams of potassium and 105 milligrams of sodium in every 100 milliliter serving.
Raw honey: One of the substantial benefits of choosing raw organic honey from your area is that it contains immune stimulating properties from the area where the bees collected pollen. This means that it can actually help to desensitize you to local allergens, potentially lessening your allergy symptoms.
