Ginger shots have been getting more popular in the last few years. And with so many health benefits, it’s no wonder why.

This particular wellness shot is primarily made up of fresh ginger, fresh lemon, and apple. Less than a teaspoon cayenne pepper gives it an extra kick (for those who like a challenge) and maple syrup is our chef’s sweetener of choice.

Why We Love This Lemon Ginger Cayenne Wellness Shot

The apple helps to balance the ginger and lemon while supporting weight loss and boosting the metabolism. At only 21 calories per 4 oz shot, you can easily add this into your daily routine even if you are watching your calorie count. Adding the cayenne not only gives this shot an extra flavor kick, it also gives your metabolism a kick too!

Here are some of this DIY elixir’s powerful health benefits:

  • High in vitamin C and potassium. Both lemon and apple juice have a ton of vitamin C. Apple and maple syrup are rich in potassium.
  • Supports immune system. Every ingredient (besides maple syrup) can aid one’s immune system and help fight off colds.
  • Great dietary aid. Many of the ingredients either help suppress hunger or aid weight loss.
  • Anti-inflammatory. Almost every ingredient in this wellness shot has anti-inflammatory properties.
  • Antioxidants. Apple and lemon are both rich in antioxidants.
  • Increases energy. Apple and maple syrup are known to help improve energy levels.

Ending with the obvious “health benefits”: this wellness shot is gluten-free, dairy-free, and fairly low in carbohydrates (assuming one 2 ounce serving size).

Hi Dee, Date syrup would be a good substitute for maple syrup (use the same amount), or you can use honey or agave nectar. I would not use whole dates because they cannot be juiced using a juicer. Typically whole, pitted dates are used in smoothies (using a blender) as a sweetener.

Hi Nuvia, Consuming more vegetables and fruits can help you lose weight. If you are looking to get a jump start on your weight loss plan, I would suggest a detox/cleanse first. You can learn how to do one in my free ebook, get it here: https://www.goodnature.com/how-to-do-a-juice-cleanse-ebook/ Happy juicing 😄

Nerd receipes that nuerlogical condition,heart, thyroid

Hi Josephine, I recommend juice recipes with green, leafy vegetables. Leafy greens such as kale, spinach, collards, and broccoli are are well-known for their wealth of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. They are rich in brain-healthy nutrients like vitamin K, lutein, folate, and beta carotene. Vitamin K also helps protect your arteries and promote proper blood clotting. From my experience and training, a diet that is largely made up of whole foods and plants is the best way to maintain a healthy body (including the mind, thyroid and heart) as well as rid the body of chronic illnesses.
