Himalayan Salt & Lime Juice
What does it do?
Himalayan Salt has many vital functions, one of them is that it nourishes the adrenals. The adrenals are 2 walnut-shaped 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 ist the major stress hormone. At the same time cortisol is very important for your energy level. You need cortisol to work, train and survive. Low cortisol levels is NOT the goal. Optimal cortisol levels is what you need.
There are a few steps and tricks to do this.
The first step I change with all body transformation clients is to instruct that they start their week days with Himalayan Salt and Lime Juice in a glass of water.
This is a simple nutritional change with the greatest overall effect.
The lime juice has a great effect on pH level. Despite the acidic taste, it has an alkaline effect metabolically. At night our pH drops, which is necessary, especially to optimize hepatic biostransformation. 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.
Try it, this is the recipe:
– Pinch of Himalayan Salt
– Juice from half a Lime
– A glass of water – ideally filtered
Mix everything and drink it right after waking up.
Do this every week day morning – no exception.
