The *MORELESS* Alkalising drink!

This is an amazing power packed, mineral and nutrient dense drink that will not only help to alkalise you, but will give you loads of electrically charged energy! I've been drinking this 2-3 times a day and I am a firm believer!
This is an amazing power packed, mineral and nutrient dense drink that will not only help to alkalise you, but will give you loads of electrically charged energy! I've been drinking this 2-3 times a day and I am a firm believer!Ingredients:1. 1 tablespoon of blackstrap molasses (Unsulphured and ideally organic)2. Juice of half a lemon (OR 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar if you can't take citrus)3. 1 tablespoon pickling lime water (= 1 tablespoon of pickling lime powder, aka calcium hydroxide, diluted in 1 gallon of distilled water) *see safety notes below*4. Small pinch of Epsom salts5. Norwegian kelp powder 1-2 teaspoons (depending on how brave you are!)6. 1 glass of distilled or alkaline mineral water (like Evian)The chemical reaction between the acid in the lemon juice and the alkaline minerals in the mollases releases energy into the body and makes the minerals more bioavailable.Method:*Dissolve the blackstrap molasses and epsom salts in warm water (leave to cool if desired)*Add 1 tablespoon of pickling lime water*Add the lemon or ACV (I sometimes add both)*Throw the kelp into back of throat (special note on the kelp! Most people find the taste absolutely vile because .... it is!!! - it may help to moisten it and your mouth first so you don't gag. Some people use a straw to bypass the taste. But this is an essential part of the drink and is packed with loads of minerals, so do what you can to get it down!)And drink!Now, the KEY ingredients are actually the blackstrap molasses and lemon juice/acv only, but all the other ingredients aid alkalising and add amazing minerals, so I do advise to add as much as you can.HEATH NOTES:*Please use organic where you can!*Blackstrap molasses must be unsulphured. I buy the Meridian brand which is also organic.*If using apple cider vinegar, I highly recommend the Braggs brand, which is organic and unpasteurised, so full of active enzymes. Otherwise, just find a good source of unpasteurosed ACV.*Pickling lime is normally found in the pickling/canning section of shops. Your alternative is to buy calcium hydroxide powder and put 1 tablespoon of the powder in 1 gallon of distilled water and use that as your pickling lime solution.*Buy food grade epsom salts.*Kelp is apparently purest from Norway, and it is better if it is finely powdered.*If you are very acidic, you can also add a pinch of epsom salts and a tablespoon of pickling lime to your normal glasses of water (the pickling lime provides calcium by the way).I've been happily drinking the above 2-3 times a day. I don't always add the kelp though. And it has a buzz to it!I'll add more later, but just wanted to stick this on the blog quickly!** SAFETY NOTES ON CALCIUM HYDROXIDE **CALCIUM HYDROXIDE (also known as - pickling lime/Ca(OH)2/slaked lime/biocalc/lime water etc.)In concentrated powdered form, this stuff is a skin, eye and respiratory irritant. It is CORROSIVE and causes burns. Should you be using this concentrated form to dilute with water before use, please protect yourself by wearing safety glasses, gloves and minimize your exposure to the dust itself.Remember, the drink asks for 1 tablespoon of the diluted lime water - you take 1 tablespoon og the powder and add it to a gallon of water. You do NOT add the powder directly to your drink!This powder is also incompatable with strong acids! So, the more acidic you are the smaller your dose should be! Start small and slow, and add more after checking your response. We are all unique, so someone else's ideal doseage may not be the same as yours.My suggestion is to make up your solution outdoors. This powder is very fine and fluffy, it'd be easy to accidently spill some on your kitchen or bathroom floor for unsuspecting kids and pets to walk on.More useful information found by Continuum Force about Cacium Hydroxide here:

"The following is as good a description of calcium hydroxide as I can find (albeit it relating to use in aquariums, but surely applicable when considering human consumption):"A preferred method of calcium supplementation comes in the form of calcium hydroxide, known as "kalkwasser" to reef aquarists. Calcium hydroxide has a chemical formula of Ca(OH)2, in other words, it supplies one Ca+2 ion for every two OH- ions. Calcium hydroxide can be mixed at approximately 2 teaspoons [5.7g Ca(OH)2] per gallon (or 1.5g/L) of filtered freshwater to attain approximately 800mg/L calcium solution to be dripped slowly into the reef aquarium. A beneficial side effect of using calcium hydroxide is that the OH- (hydroxide) ions maintain the pH of the aquarium by neutralizing acids present in the aquarium, thereby helping to maintain (but not build) the alkalinity in the aquarium. One could use pickling lime, which is also calcium hydroxide. Unfortunately, pickling lime tends to have visible amounts of impurities in it."
