We had a fun-filled weekend, and I was feeling happily exhausted today! Around 3 p.m., I was fighting to focus on the tasks at hand, and was thinking that I needed a jolt of caffeine! As much as I enjoy that now and then, I thought my body needed hefty hydration and a brain boost even more, so I whipped up this cucumber basil elixir, and was amazed at what my regenerated brain was able to accomplish for the rest of the day! 

Sensationally simple to make, just blend 1 organic english cucumber, peeled, with 1/2 cup of water and 1/4 cup packed basil leaves until smooth, and then enjoy the following benefits of this delicious and refreshing super sipper:

 

1. Cellular hydration for firmer skin, optimal gut function, and increased cognitive function
2. Promotes weight loss
3. Lowers blood sugar, stabilizes energy, and supports a healthy cardiovascular system
4. Anti-inflammatory for optimal joint function, and brain health. 
5. Reduce effects of stress due to high levels of Vitamin B
6. Antibacterial, antimicrobial, antiviral to combat bacteria, viruses, candida, and mold for a healthy immune system
7. Increases blood flow and energy levels for an aphrodisiac effect! 💞

This simple strategy takes just 5 minutes to reset the body and the brain for optimal effectiveness! Email me at lisa@alivingwelllife.com if you have any questions!
