I drink this healthy bad boy every morning on an empty stomach. It's warm lemon water!! There are many beneficial reasons, but I'm going to give you my top 5 reasons why you should add this to your daily routine, if you haven't already.
Every morning when I come downstairs into the kitchen. I cut open a lemon and squeeze half a lemon into my favourite mug. I then add warm water not scolding water to the cup. In order to maintain the health benefits of the lemon juice. I also love to add grated ginger as well, especially in the winter or if my tummy feels imbalanced.
This takes less than a minute to do, and your mind, body and spirit will LOVE you for it!
Top 5 Reasons to Add Warm Lemon Water to
your Daily Routine:
1. It Aids in Digestion. Warm lemon water helps kick start your digestive system. It is also loaded with vitamins and minerals which help loosen toxins in our bodies.
2. Boosts Our Immune System. Lemons are high in vitamin C and potassium. Vitamin C is great for fighting or preventing colds. Potassium stimulates brain and nerve function and helps control blood pressure.
3. Balances pH. Disease and illness can only grow and flourish in an acidic environment. As our body metabolizes the lemon juice, they become alkaline in our system. Which is amazing!
4. Helps with Weight Loss. Lemons are high in fiber, which helps fight hunger cravings. It also has been shown that people who maintain a more alkaline diet tend to lose weight faster.
5. Keeps you Hydrated. Staying hydrated is extremely important in maintaining amazing health. Drinking water helps stabilize our body's temperature, so it can function at its optimal level. This in turn gives us more energy by transporting oxygen to our muscles, protects our joints, spinal cord, eyes, brain, keeps our skin moist, etc...
