If you had to ask us what the perfect cozy fall beverage was, we’d probably say, “cider.” Not only is it caffeine-free, but it’s not too heavy and not too watery. And quite frankly, there’s just nothing quite like a mug of steaming sweet cider to warm your insides on a cold afternoon.
This recipe includes our signature Pure Essence twist so that while you’re sipping away and feeling warm and happy, your entire body (right down to your cells) is also feeling loved.
It’s an easy to make recipe that gives your body an abundance of nutrients to help keep you healthy!
Here’s how it works
For starters, apple cider contains soluble fiber pectin, which may aid in reducing cholesterol. It’s also a good source of vitamin C and iron – a power duo for immune health. Vitamin C is essential for tissue repair and regeneration and supports the healthy functioning of the immune system and adrenal glands, both of which can be impaired by stress (including the physical stress of cold weather).
Secondly, the earthy spices – cinnamon, nutmeg, and clove, not only provide cider with its unique flavor but they also have amazing anti-inflammatory benefits. On top of that, cinnamon promotes good digestion and can moderate blood sugar levels in people with type 2 diabetes. Nutmeg can help stimulate cells to release insulin. And cloves provide the highest antioxidant power of all spices!
And lastly, our signature twist – Ionic-Fizz™ Magnesium Plus™. Ionic-Fizz™ Magnesium Plus™ provides 300 mg of easily digestible magnesium. Magnesium is involved in hundreds of functions in the body. Among countless other things, magnesium supports healthy stress response and sleep patterns, produce sustainable energy, healthy bones, and muscular relaxation.*
So sit back and relax this winter with a cozy beverage for you and your health.
