Dr. Oz gives tips on how to  boost your energy by revitalizing your energy levels organ by organ.  During this segment on today’s show Dr. Oz shares a prebiotic shake, dandelion coffee, coconut oil moisturizer recipe.  Dietitian Heidi Skolnik also appears on the show to talk about how Vitamin C can help to boost your brain and even help you to look younger.

“Clean Your Gut” With A Prebiotic Shake Recipe

Dr. Tasneem Bhatia was a guest on the show who said that your gut is like the “command central” for your entire body.  DR. Bhatia said that if your gut isn’t functioning well, the rest of your body won’t work as it should as well.  Dr. Bhatia suggested drinking prebiotic shakes on the first day of the “7 Day Anti-Aging and Energy Boosting” plan.  The prebiotic shake will help to to increase the amount of good bacteria in your stomach and allow them to flourish.

Prebiotic Shake Ingredients :

  • 10 oz of almond milk
  • 1 medium banana
  • 1/2 cup of blueberries
  • 2 tsp of apple cider vinegar
  • 1 scoop of a plant based protein powder

Preparation directions :

Mix all of the ingredients noted above and drink in the morning to jump start your day.

Sharpen Your Brain And Boost Your Energy With Vitamin C

On day 2 of the 7 day plan Dr. Oz and Heidi Skolnik (Dietician) discussed how citrus foods contain flavonoids and they benefit the brain by reducing stress hormones which increases your focus and mental power.  Heidi Skolnik advised that you eat citrus foods eat each of your meals during the day.

You can also drink from a citrus infuser to give your water a fruity flavor and add to your Vitamin C intake all throughout the day.

Boost Your Energy With Flaxseeds

Day 3 of the 7 day plan is about opening up your airways.  Being able to breath deeply is essential for energy.  Heidi Skolnik suggested adding one to two tbsp of flaxseeds to yogurt, on top of your favorite salad, or to a smoothie.  Flaxseeds contain magnesium that relaxes your lung muscles.  You will notice that your you can breath more deeply because the muscles are relaxed and your airways are open (which will increase the amount of oxygen you breath in).

Boost Your Liver With Dandelion Coffee

Tim Ferriss was the next guess on Dr. Oz.  Tim Ferris is the author of “The 4 Hour Body.”  The next step in the seven day plan is to detox your liver.  Tim Ferris suggested that you can cleanse your lier by replacing the coffee you drink regularly with dandelion coffee.  All you do is add one to two tablespoons of dandelion powder to 1 1/4 cups of your favorite instant coffee.

Boost Your Iron Levels on Day #6 of the Anti-Aging Energy Plan

Dr. Bhatia explained to Dr. Oz and the audience that anemia is caused by an iron deficiency.  If you have low iron levels you will feel fatigued and lacking energy all the time.  Add some beef, fish, and poultry to each meal but be mindful to keep the portion size small.  Just a small portion of these iron rich foods will boost your iron levels to where they need to be for optimal energy.

Look Younger With Coconut Oil Skin Moisturizer

Day 6 of Dr. Oz’s anti-aging plan is to bring back the glow to your skin.  Here is the coconut oil suggestions that Dr. Jeanine Downie suggested during the segment :

  • Use 1 tbsp of coconut oil (per day) while cooking your meals
  • Moisturize your skin with 1 tbsp of coconut oil.  You can moisturize your hair, skin, and nails with coconut oil.

Relax Your Body With An Epsom Salt Bath

Day #7 of the anti-aging plan is all about rest, relaxation and rejuvenating your heart.  Epsom salt baths (contain magnesium) reduce stress and tension.  An epsom salt soak will help you to sleep better at night.

  • Add one cup of epsom salt and 1 cup of baking soda to the bath water and rest in the tub for 30 minutes before you go to bed.
