Last year was an extremely stressful year for me. I knew I was stressed out, but I do not think I realized exactly how much at the time and the lack of support I was giving my body. In 2014 between June and August….I graduated college, got married, changed jobs, and moved homes. Not to mention…kept up with life at the same time. Followed by adjusting to being married, adjusting to the new job, and family drama.
Needless to say my body waked-out on me! I couldn’t figure out what was going on…I kept thinking it was hormonal. I was partially correct…..the the stress and subsequent consequences of the stress caused my adrenals to go into over-load. This affected my thyroid and caused it to under produce. The combination caused a myriad of symptoms.
So, to the point! To give some LOVE to my adrenals I make “Homemade Lemonade with an Extra Vitamin C Kick!” daily. The adrenals love vitamin C!
Please take a special note that not all vitamin C is made equally. Quality matters, as with most things you put into your body. I personally like Health Force Nutritionals: Truly Natural Vitamin C. It is in powder form. I purchased mine at Sprout’s, but you can find it online everywhere. If this brand doesn’t suit you, try to find a brand that is 100% from food or food-derived and is a vitamin C complex not an isolated nutrient.
Yummy Recipe for my “Homemade Lemonade with an Extra Vitamin C Kick!”
- Aprox. 6 to 8 oz of water (however much that glass holds)
- 1/2 to 1 Lemon Juiced
- 1 1/2 teaspoon of Vitamin C Powder
- 1/2 pkg of Stevia Powder (organic brand)
I mix this all together and drink it down. I feel great after I drink it. I hope you add this cocktail to your daily routine as well.
