Lemon-Lime Bicarb Phytoplankton Shots
Juice of 1 lemon, strained
Juice of 1 lime, strained
1 dropperful Oceans Alive marine phytoplankton
⅛ tsp sodium bicarbonate (per glass)
Mix the first three ingredients. Divide into two tall glasses. Add sodium bicarbonate to each glass, stir quickly and drink on an empty stomach.
This is a shot like no other and a great way to liven up your breakfast routine. It’s a simple and effective way to boost your energy without caffeine or other stimulants. The electrolytes will rehydrate you after fasting through the night. Plus, it’s full of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants to boot.
That’s not all! There may be even more reasons to make this your morning mocktail. Recent scientific study has explored the potential of limonoids — found in citrus fruits —to be anticancer, cholesterol-lowering and antiviral.
Sodium bicarbonate, otherwise known as baking soda, is part of many traditional remedies, known for a wide variety of uses and benefits. It is a popular antacid and can be helpful for treating urinary tract infections, preventing kidney stones and for delaying lactic acid buildup that causes muscle fatigue and soreness after a workout.
And then there’s this elixir’s secret weapon — marine phytoplankton. This microalgae is responsible for 90% of the oxygen on Earth, according to NASA, and is the foundation of the marine food chain. It is so incredibly nutrient-dense, just one dropperful contains dozens of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. My favorite marine phytoplankton supplement, Oceans Alive, is grown specially in a sealed photo bioreactor to ensure that there are no pollutants and that the microalgae is pure and perfectly selected for maximum bioavailability.
The combination of lemon and lime, with baking soda and marine phytoplankton is one powerful way to start your day. For more on the benefits of this shot, have a listen to the podcast.
