  • Weight loss
  • High cholesterol levels
  • Body metabolism
  • Detoxification

    1. Tried this out. Tasted pretty good. Thanks for sharing.

    2. Awesome. I'm psyched knowing someone read this post and tried the recipe.

    3. Have not tried the homemade elixir yet, however, did enjoy finding your post. Be patient my friend....they will come.

    4. I'm giving a lecture on Dick Proenneke tomorrow, and in the process of last-minute research I came across your post. It's a cold December night, so I gave the recipe a try. Surprisingly delicious. Dick really knew his stuff. Thank you for sharing!

    5. Best drink ever! I learned it from the same passage you did. Everyone should try it!

    6. I just watched the PBS documentary a couple of weeks ago. It was insane! I had no idea that he did all of this. So, I just started Google searching Dick Proenneke and I found this site. Hopefully the drink is as healthy as it says! Drinking my first ever cup now! =D
