It’s also rich in iron, loaded with antioxidants and high in other essential vitamins, making it one of the most nutrient-dense superfoods available. Enjoyed this lemonade iced or warm all year long for an alkaline energy & immune boost!
Ingredients & Benefits
Chlorella - These algae contains many nutrients, including vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and omega-3 fats. It helps to support the body through boosting immune function, hormone function, and cardiovascular health. It also may help the body detox by binding to heavy metals and other toxins.
Lemon Juice - Although acidic in nature, lemons produce an alkalizing effect in the body. They aid in digestion, detoxification, and support liver function while boosting energy and relieving belly bloating.
Raw Honey - Rich in antioxidants, phytonutrients, and enzymes, honey also has antiseptic, antibiotic, and antimicrobial properties. Similar to bee pollen, local honey exposes our bodies to some of the pollen in the area and may help the body build up a tolerance to local allergens, making it an amazing natural antihistamine.
Ginger - Ginger is great for improving digestion, relieving gastric upset, and reducing inflammation.
It’s a natural anti-inflammatory and antispasmodic, helps to prevent infections, improves circulation, and aids in digestive function.
