Lemon and salt in the morning
Salt has many vital functions, one of them is that it nourishes the adrenals. The adrenals are 2 kidney bean sized glands that sit on top of the kidneys. They are responsible for the maojrity of hormones involved in energy level and stress management, such as adrenalin, noradrenalin and cortisol.
Cortisol it the major stress hormone. You need cortisol to work, train and survive. The goal is optimal cortisol levels. That means high cortisol in the morning, according to our biorhythm, cortisol should be the highest between 6-8 am decreasing gradually throughout the day. With the lowest point at about 10pm, the time we should go to bed and fall asleep.
Do you wake up by yourself between 6-8 am every day? If not, you most likely suffer low morning cortisol. If you want to have more energy in the morning and wake up by yourself full of energy then reset your biorhythm. The most efficient way to do this is:
Start your day with a ¼ tsp Himalayan salt, and half a fresh squeezed lemon juice in a glass of water. Any colored salt works. I just prefer the Himalayan pink rock salt. The lemon juice has a great effect on pH level. Despite the acidic taste, it has an alkaline effect metabolically. At night our pH drops. In the morning the Ph has to get more alkaline again, mainly to optimize energy production in the cells. So an optimal pH level, especially in the morning, leads to more energy. The salt also has a great effect on intestinal health as it has anti-microbial and anti-parasitic properties.
Have a go and fast track your way to overcoming adrenal fatigue and morning tiredness.*Disclaimer: Individual results vary based on agreed goals. Click here for details.
