My go-to drink of choice these days is an adrenal cocktail. It is the perfect balance of whole food Vitamin C, potassium, sodium and magnesium blended into the most delicious, creamy drink.
Everything comes down to mineral balance and this drink helps build up the minerals that our body needs to make essential hormones. When our hormones are balanced, our thyroid and metabolism is balanced, which allows us to feel healthy and strong. As I talk about in my book, it is vital to balance the sodium and potassium ratio in our bodies for proper adrenal function. This drink feeds the cells and takes stress off the adrenals by balancing blood sugar, especially when the body is under stress. It can instantly help you feel more grounded and relaxed by stabilizing your energy levels throughout the day. I start every morning with this yummy drink, prior to drinking my coffee and having breakfast. You can also sip on it in between meals or during high stress times when an increased burn rate of vital nutrients could occur.
- 1-2 tbsp of raw cream or coconut cream
- 1/4 tsp cream of tartar
- sprinkle of salt. I use Celtic salt
- 1 scoop of collagen powder (Native Path.Use code: JesseGolden15)
- 8 oz. organic orange juice (freshly pressed is best, unpasteurized if possible and always organic)
Blend in a blender or use a frother until it is fully mixed and creamy. Drink right away upon waking up. Repeat as needed, up to 3x per day.
If it is too sweet for you, you can add water or less orange juice, or use coconut water and orange juice. You can play around with the ingredients and adjust based on how your body feels. You can also add your other powders or liquids that you like to consume on a regular basis. I sometimes add my glutathione in there.
A little note on cream of tartar. Cream of tartar is a leavening agent that you would normally see in baking. It is high in potassium and very alkaline, which can help with everything from clearing up acne, combatting heartburn, treating arthritis and even helping to lower blood pressure.
Regularly nourishing your body with organic high quality fat, carbs and protein is key to optimal health. This drink only takes a few minutes to make, tastes delicious and is the perfect ratio of all of those things. Make it, try it and tag me on IG @jessegolden
