The Skinny Lemon Co. Master Cleanse
by Don Bandow, Director of Grocery Buying
It all started in Amber Blumer’s California kitchen where she made the original Master Cleanse™ beverage for herself and friends using only four simple ingredients: purified water, lemons, maple syrup, and cayenne. The shopping, measuring, weighing, scooping, pressing, and even squeezing the lemons took a lot of money, energy, and time. She used an antique juice press, and when it broke she knew there had to be an easier way. That was when she had her “aha” moment and The Skinny Lemon Co.™ was born. Now, The Master Cleanse™ is conveniently bottled in glass and ready to go!
What is The Master Cleanse™ and Why does The Skinny Lemon Company™ bottle it? The Master Cleanse™ is a specialty nutrient dense lemon drink that originated in the 1940’s as a detox body cleanse made from fresh squeezed lemons, rich maple syrup, and cayenne pepper with purified water. It’s refreshing and good for you, and people like it as specialty lemonade with that heat “zing” of Cayenne pepper. You can drink The Master Cleanse™ on its own at room temperature, or with ice, or even heat it up instead of coffee on the go. The tried and true formula is now bottled for convenience.
The Skinny Lemon Co™ uses ingredients that are simply the freshest organic choices in the world, and no artificial coloring has been added. Here’s a breakdown of the ingredients and why they were chosen:
Purified Water: Hydrating the body is one of the most important things in maintaining your health. Purified water is used as the base, which minimizes the accidental exposure to toxins, particles, germs, small organisms, and other pollutants. Most people still get their drinking water from a tap at home which originates from local streams, lakes, rivers, and underground sources before being run through a water treatment plant. For several reasons, this filtration does not completely free your tap water from pollutants or even diseases that continue to be present in water. This is why the water that goes into The Master Cleanse™ is purified by undergoing water technology to filter out contaminates. The taste of the final product not only helps your hydrated body maintain optimal health, but the water tastes crisp and clean.
Lemons: The soil used for lemon trees that source the lemons for The Master Cleanse™ drink is higher in antioxidants and other nutrients. The farmers use no persistent pesticides or synthetic fertilizer. They use no growth hormones, have no genetically engineered crops, and the seeds used for the beautiful lemon trees are all natural. The raw organic lemons are bright yellow superstars plucked right off the trees of local California farmers. Lemons have always been used as a health supplement. A few things lemons do for our body care:
Lemons are an alkaline food; they push our bodies to the required pH alkaline state because of high levels of magnesium, calcium, and potassium. Lemons balance blood sugar with the acidity and they have the ability to break down calcified substances. Lemons used in The Master Cleanse™ break down the unhealthy cells, so our bodies can regenerate itself. Raw lemon juice cleanses the kidneys and digestive system while removing toxins. The pectin found in lemons is a great source of fiber that is thought to help lose weight.
Vitamin c helps the body absorb calcium, which helps fight disease like the common cough and cold, asthma, fever, motion sickness, painful joints, insomnia, acne, or many other types of infections. Lemons are a brain and nerve food because the potassium found in the juice helps the brain and nerve cells, which can improve concentration, and calms the mind. Organic lemon juice is also a good way to remove radiation from the body.
Pure Grade B Maple Syrup: The maple syrup found in The Master Cleanse™ is sodium and cholesterol free, produced without chemicals, and contains no additives or preservatives. Because the Maple Farmers tap the trees in forests they own, they can oversee the conditions of the woods, and guarantee the quality that goes into the Master Cleanse™ drink. Maple syrup has a high quality concentrated source of energy and is a mineral packed syrup that consists of sucrose and small other sugars such as fructose and glucose. It also contains amino acids, zinc, manganese, potassium, and a variety of bolatile organic compounds including vanillin, hydroxybutanone, and proionaldehyde. We love the sweetness it gives to the taste in The Master Cleanse™.
Combined, these ingredients formulate a perfect drink. The Master Cleanse(™) by the Skinny Lemon(™) company. Give it a try today and let us know how you enjoyed it!
