While we sleep our body does a full toxin cleanse, so the first thing we should do in the morning is to help our body eliminate all those unwanted toxins. We can do that, by drinking a cleansing beverage, like this metabolism-boosting golden tea, 30 minutes before eating breakfast.
Drinking warm water with lemon upon waking is a very simple and effective way to detoxify the body and stimulate the digestive enzymes. The turmeric root is rich in curcumin, a phytonutrient that has natural anti-inflammatory properties, ginger treats digestive and gastrointestinal problems and cayenne pepper boosts the metabolism. Both black pepper and ghee aid in the absorption of all the amazing active ingredients in this golden tea and ghee also stimulates the removal of toxins.
