My Miracle Drink

My Miracle Drink

 

Wonder! What I am going to share under the topic “My Miracle Drink”, as I say this is not only mine but most of the women’s Miracle Drink. Yeah except every 2 among 100’s most of the women are Anemic. Getting relieve from Anemic is taking more Iron rich food, when we consult a doctor, certainly there will be loads of iron tablets and iron tonics. Now do everyone of us take it regularly – when most of them do and there are few like me – who hate the smell of iron tablets and feel nausea.

Beetroot Juice / Iron Rich Drink

I could never ever forget this – it was during my second pregnancy, when I got to skip most of the iron tablets. It was like a fun when I skipped those tablets in the absence of my hubby but only later during my delivery, I could understand how mad I have been. Yeah, it was a very difficult time in my life – I was very very anemic and not even able to lift my head after the delivery, it was a mess not only for me but the whole family suffered because of me. Doctor gave some pills, and tonic, but imagine nothing boosts out immediately everything takes time. That too the iron pills where I get nausea and loose stools, so never ever I wanted to have it.

Taking this to Indiblogger – Iron Chef Contest by Livogen – by saying no to Anemia as a healthy women.

Finally, when my grandma’s friend shared me a miracle drink which would recover us from iron deficiency, I was very happy, had it (no more skipping job), I felt the difference in just 3 days. But it is advised to have once in 2 days, else you get side effects, since “Too much of anything is good for Nothing”. Not only during that time, but still I have the drink at least once in a week or at times when don’t take it once in a week may be whenever I feel tired, feel like I can’t do anything, feel like nausea, feel like having continuous head ache and I feel better and lots of difference in just 2 hours after consuming this Drink.

This “Miracle Drink” is very easy to prepare, too cheap and the ingredients are available at our local markets or nearby shops. It’s nothing but Beetroot, Lemon Juice and Salt. Let me share the recipe…

Beetroot Juice / Iron Rich Drink

Ingredients:

  • Beetroot – ½ (medium size)
  • Lemon juice – 2 to 3 drops
  • Salt – 2 pinches or as per your taste

Preparation:

  • Peel the beetroot, roughly chop them into pieces.
  • Take a mixer and grind the beetroot pieces along with ½ cup of water, make sure to add water little by little continue grinding.
  • Strain the juice and discard the flesh.
  • Now pour the lemon juice (make sure to pour only 2 drops of lemon juice for a cup of juice, else it would taste more sour and little astringent).
  • Add salt, mix well and drink it immediately. (Make sure to have it within 30 mins of preparation, else it would taste sour and would be not of use).

This drink should be consumed only once in every 3 days, as “Too Much of Anything is Good for Nothing”. Not only for women, everyone in our family can have. Hope everyone would give a try and stabilize your IRON CONTENT and say good bye to “ANEMIA”. As we women being the backbone of every family, let us take care of our self and to make our family stay healthy and happy.
