3-5-ingredient Powerhouse Shots For Digestion, Metabolism And Super Immunity

Last updated on

Most people have had the experience of waking up early in the morning and wanting to do nothing other than go right back to bed. As a result, most people tend to drink caffeinated beverages such as coffee or tea to give them a boost of energy.

Although these drinks are commonly consumed around the world as a “wake-me-up”, there are healthier and more efficient alternatives to these caffeinated beverages.


1. Digestion Booster Shot

In order to have sufficient energy to last the day, your body needs to be able to properly digest the nutrients that it is receiving. Having problems with your digestive system could result in having low energy, among a variety of other problems caused by indigestion.


  • Juice from ½ a lemon (aids in digestion by improving metabolic function)
  • 3 tablespoons of organic apple cider vinegar
  • 1 clove of garlic, crushed
  • A small amount of grated, organic ginger root, or a pinch of ginger powder

This shot is very strong. Let the crushed garlic sit in the other ingredients for a few minutes before drinking. If you find that you cannot handle it, mix it in with a little water to make it easier to swallow. Sip it slowly.


2. Metabolism Booster Shot

Having a healthy metabolism is necessary if you want to have optimal energy to last throughout the day. Although your digestive system breaks down nutrients from your food, your metabolism is responsible for converting the nutrients into energy for your body to use.


  • Juice from ½ a lemon
  • 3 tablespoons of organic apple cider vinegar
  • A small amount of grated, fresh turmeric, or a pinch of ground turmeric powder (about 1/8 teaspoon)
  • A few twists of freshly ground black pepper
  • A pinch of cayenne pepper (increases your metabolism through thermogenesis—heating up your body)

Turmeric and black pepper in this shot supercharge your metabolism by supporting the liver. That extra pinch of cayenne pepper helps boost your metabolism that also prevents weight gain.

3. Green Smoothie Shot

Protein is an essential nutrient when it comes to keeping your energy levels high. This Green Smoothie Shot contains 10 grams of protein, vitamin C and B and lots of potassium.


  • ¼ cup of frozen organic blueberries
  • 1 slice of ginger
  • A small handful of organic spinach
  • Optional: Add some Stevia or raw honey for sweetness.

In order to make these shots, mix all of the ingredients together in a blender. Add some water to it if you want the shot to have a more liquid-like consistency. You can prepare these mixtures in large quantities and store them in your fridge.


The food that you consume in the morning should always be the best quality possible, as you are breaking an 8 or more hour-long fast. A healthy breakfast will start your day off right. These health shots will ensure that you get the super boost that you need to have a productive day.
