Morning Mojo

I just wanted to share one of the recipes from the 28 Day Challenge. It’s called Morning Mojo and one of the important things it does is it helps increase stomach acids. A lot of us suffer from low stomach acid and that can mimic high stomach acid. If you go to a conventional doctor you may get treated for high stomach acid making the situation worse. All you really need is Morning Mojo or Braggs Apple Cider Vinegar in water.

The reason stomach acids are so important is because they help us absorb nutrients from our food. One of the things that causes low stomach acid is antibiotics. With each course of antibiotics, you will produce less and less stomach acids causing you to have trouble with absorption of nutrients.

Got anemia? Lack of iron? Here’s all the things you have going against you. Possible low stomach acids from too much antibiotics. Low nutrient in the soil because farmers use chemical fertilizers which causes lack of nutrients in our food. Heavy metal toxins blocking absorption in the gut. GMO foods preventing absorption in the gut and binding to nutrients in our bodies depleting them further.

Grains get sprayed with glyphosate (the active ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup), 3 days before the crop is harvested. It ripens (kills), the crop and kills the weeds for the next season. Glyphosate is an antibiotic and one of the greatest chelators known to man. It is used to clean minerals off things. It binds to minerals in our body and depletes our minerals. Let’s stay away from grains and up our stomach acids for better nutrient absorption. Here’s the Morning Mojo recipe.

Morning Mojo: Lemon Ginger Detox
