Start Your Day With Lemon Water Every Morning.

For a few years now I’ve started my day with a glass of fresh lemon and warm water and occasionally would add a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar, but that’s an article for another glass-water-lemon-mint-14766062time!

So what are the benefits of having lemon water? Here they are:

  • Helps flush out toxins
  • Hydrates the body after fasting: Your body while you sleep is literally in fasting mode and when you wake up you feel dehydrated. Drinking a glass or two of lemon water rehydrates the body and kick starts your metabolism
  • Strengthens the immune system
  • Balances and maintains the body’s pH
  • Detoxifies the liver and kidneys
  • Encourages bile production and aids digestion
  • Reduces inflammation in joints and knees
  • Relieves indigestion and excess gas
  • Potassium helps nourish the brain and nerve cells
  • Serves as a powerful anti-bacterial
  • Aids weight loss
  • Helps with colds and flu symptoms and packed full of vitamin C which the body needs
  • Lemon juice is a great skin cleanser which benefits the skin and helps prevent wrinkles and acne
  • Freshens breath
  • Soothes sore throat

Lemon is a natural energiser: it hydrates and oxygenates the body so it feels energised and refreshed. With all these benefits, I think I will be sticking to having a glass each morning. Don’t stop there though, it’s also great to have it through the day to aid digestion and balance the body’s pH levels which helps boost your immune system. Ensure you have a bottle of water with you through out the day to keep your body hydrated even in this cold weather!

As a guide, add at least a tablespoonful of freshly squeezed lemon juice to a glass of warm water and enjoy, add some fresh mint leaves to give additional benefits and freshness. Let the cleansing begin!!

Peace and fabulous health!
