It’s time to get healthy, and for many people that includes taking shots in the morning all the way through the night. Of bourbon. Naw, I’m just joking! Pour the empty liquor calories down the sink and instead start throwing back powerful shots of ‘health’ to keep you running on your best cylinders. A steady health shot regime has proven to vastly improve the nutrition in people, as well as their energy levels across the nation. When a cold or flu-like symptoms hit you, there is nearly anything you would do to feel better, especially when having fun in the sun or going on vacation is what you’d rather be doing in the summer.
One search on Google will produce results showing all the great benefits of health shots and more recipes than any one person could possibly need.
Here are an array of different health shots to try out. Find what you like and start incorporating one or more into your overall diet. Adjusting to health shots may be a bit difficult, so eating an apple slice or an orange slice afterwards can improve the ‘taste of potency.’
To get started, juice the ingredients and save them for up four days on average. If you don’t have a juicer, it’s still good because you can use a blender to make your health shots. Blend ingredients on high and then use a cheese cloth or fine strainer to run the juice through after blending.
