Make a healthy and fresh start to your summer by adopting a sole habit. Sole (pronounced so-lay) is water fully saturated with unrefined salt, such as pure pink Himalayan salt. When you start each morning drinking sole, you provide adrenal support for your body, which creates positive health effects and greater energy for you that lasts throughout your day.
Each morning, our bodies transition from rest to getting up and ready to tackle our day. Our blood pressure naturally rises as we move from laying down to standing, and adrenaline kicks in to help raise our blood pressure for this transition. Getting the body going in the morning is tasking for the adrenaline system – which is too often already fatigued because of environmental toxins, poor diet, and stress.
When you drink sole first thing in the morning, the salt water slightly, naturally raises your blood pressure* for a short time, doing the same work the adrenals normally do. With this easy shift of the body’s workflow by drinking sole, the adrenals ease into the morning, giving them more rest and more capacity to fuel your body’s energy through the day.
When you adopt a sole habit each morning, you’ll notice you have more energy, sleep better and feel better. Sole balances your blood sugar, supports your thyroid as well as your adrenal system, and more.
To receive sole’s benefits in the morning, you must drink it before eating or drinking anything else. Here’s our recipe for how to make sole.
Worried about the taste of salty water? Add a natural enhancer to flavor your drink. Lemon is a great choice for summer. Squeeze some lemon juice, or add a couple of lemon slices to your sole.
You can also try these other optional add-ins, to mix up the flavor of your sole: lime, any fresh citrus, pureed berries, honey or coconut water.
*Sole actually has a longer term effect of helping to balance your blood pressure, so it is safe to use, even if you suffer from high blood pressure.
