My morning ritual is sacred to me.

And yet for many years I had issues waking up early. I would sleep in and get a much later start to my day than I wanted, so then I would have to stay up late trying to accomplish everything… which would make it harder to get up early the next morning! A vicious cycle.

The game changer for me was to create a powerful morning ritual practice. Something I looked forward to. I realized that the key is to build a routine that will pull you out of bed.

At the moment, my morning ritual is a blend of fitness, yoga, breathing, and then a late power breakfast.

Also, one of the things I most look forward to is my morning Super Vitamin C Elixir. This zingy and energizing beverage helps me prime my day, and today I am sharing my secret recipe with you.

Why Make a Vitamin C Drink?

What makes this beverage so special is its high antioxidant content and anti-inflammatory properties. Vitamin C – also known as L-ascorbic acid – is one of the most powerful antioxidants out there, thanks to its ability to neutralize cell-damaging free radicals in the body. Vitamin C also helps with iron absorption, and lowers the risk of high blood pressure. MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane) is a sulfur compound that helps reduce inflammation, joint/muscle pain, oxidative stress, and has powerful antioxidant capacities.

When it come to vitamin C, I usually shoot for at least 200 mg of vitamin C a day and this super drink will take you there.
