This is one of my go to beverages to ease inflammation, soothe the nerves, help the liver do its job and keep stress hormones down.
This soothing Vitamin C drink is wonderful for this time of year too. It just feels good.
Oranges contain Vitamin C, Magnesium, fibre, protein, Potassium, Phosphorus, Calcium, Iron, Selenium, Manganese, Copper, Zinc and small amounts of other vitamins and minerals.
Add to this some raw honey, collagen and a pinch of salt and you have a great anti-stress, anti-inflammatory, immune boosting drink.
Juice 2 or 3 oranges or use a glass of smooth orange juice from a carton.
In a small bowl add 2 teaspoons of gelatin – Buy gelatin here – cover with 3 tablespoons of water and leave for 10 minutes to ‘bloom’.
You can add 1 tablespoon of the ready prepared hydrolysed collagen instead, but sometimes gelatin is preferred.
Add the orange juice to a small saucepan with a cup of water.
Warm up and stir in the prepared gelatin or hydrolysed collagen, stirring until dissolved.
Stir in 2 teaspoons of raw honey and a pinch of sea salt.
Why use collagen?
