3-Ingredient Overnight Alkaline Water Recipe For Weight Loss, Fatigue and More

When you think about your personal health and nutrition goals, what food or nutrients do you usually consider to be most important? Consider this: Our brains are made up of about 70% water, our bodies about 80%, surely water should be considered one of the most important things we put into our body on a daily basis. Each morning when you rise, you are already 2 cups dehydrated.

To enhance your daily protocol whatever it may be now, you can do one simple thing that will give you more energy, help you focus, and reduce cravings. Can you guess what that one thing is going to be? Upon waking, drink at least 2 cups of filtered alkaline water.
