What is a recipe for a drink that can help fight fatigue and boost energy?

Dr. Mehmet Oz, MD

Try my “Wakeup Water.” Make a pitcher each day that contains:
  • 8 cups water (to stay hydrated)
  • 3/4 cup cooked pearl barley (contains iron to fight fatigue)
  • 2 lemons (for antioxidants and vitamin C)
  • 1/4 cup honey (to make it palatable and sweet)
Method: Add barley to boiling water and soak for 10 minutes. Strain and remove barley from the water. Add the juice of 2 lemons and a quarter cup of honey. Try bringing a portable pitcher with you to work. (You can save the cooked barley for dinnertime.)
