Wellness shots are perfect morning starters because they are usually a combination of natural ingredients that can boost your health, improve your metabolism, and even help you out in the weight loss department.

There’s so many levels to this whole health is wealth journey, and what good would we be if we didn’t at least help you with a few levels. We’re calling this level one because that early morning wellness shot can do more good than you could even imagine, so we’re suggesting five wellness shot recipes that could be a perfect start to your day.

The Apple Cider Vinegar Shot

There’s been a lot of glowing recommendations when it comes to ACV, there’s also a lot of ways to make use of this shot recipe, but the best part has to be the untapped benefits. Apple Cider Vinegar has a way of suppressing your appetite, this works especially well for people trying to boost their weight loss journey on a healthy level.

For this recipe, you’ll need lemon juice, turmeric, water, cayenne pepper, and of course apple cider vinegar. All you need to do is stir 1-2 tablespoons of Apple cider vinegar along with the other ingredients in moderate proportions, and this will definitely boost your metabolism. Most people also opt for just apple cider vinegar mixed in a tall glass of water. 

It is important to note that apple cider vinegar is noted to have some bad side effects like tooth enamel erosion and other possible effects, it is very important to take it in moderation, get the opinion of your doctor especially if you’re taking meds, and most importantly, use a straw to drink.

It’s All About Green Shots

Everything green has to be healthy right? Well, no, but this green juice recipe sure is. Ever heard of the wonders of cucumber on an empty stomach? It’s ridiculously hard to believe, but it has so many benefits from hydration to absolutely glowing skin.

Depending on what you like, you could go for cucumber, a banana, green apple, pineapple, and coconut water. Blend the combo till it reaches a perfect smoothie consistency and you’re good to go.

The Proverbial Lemon Shot 

If we didn’t include the essential lemon and warm water shot, we would be absolutely wrong, this shot has to be an exact science because of the endless benefits you stand to gain when you take it in the morning, and it’s pretty straightforward to make as well.

The Ginger-Turmeric-Lemon Shot

I think we’ve all seen this film before, and we really liked the ending. If made properly, this ginger-turmeric-honey-lemon shot has the potential to provide you with a lot of health benefits for your overall well being. It’s so easy to mess this recipe up, start off with the juice extract of half a lemon, one piece of ginger and turmeric, a pinch of black pepper, and very little honey. All you need to do is blend the mix, sieve up the mixture and take a shot.

It’s All About Green Tea

Ditch your regular morning tea or coffee for the healthiest alternative morning shot yet. This is super easy to make and it won’t even take up your time. Dip a green tea bag in hot water and wait for it to be a little bit cooler. If you want a little bit of a twist, you could add a tiny pinch of cayenne pepper and stir well.

This shot, like all the ones mentioned before, all have something in common. They contain certain antioxidants that could help with fat burning, cleansing your digestive system, improving your gut health, and even giving you a little bit of a glow.
