One of the things I tell my clients is to drink warm lemon water in the morning. Lemon water really helps your body flush out toxins, especially first thing in the morning when your body is dehyrdated! Here are some reasons why you should add this simple step to your morning routine.
Improves Your Digestion. Lemon water encourages your liver to produce bile by helping the enzymes in your liver function, which loosens things up and removes toxins from your digestive tract! This also relieves a lot of symptoms of indigestion, including heartburn and bloating.
Keeps Your Body Alkaline. Lemon water helps balance the pH levels in your body by removing overall acidity from your body. This prevents disease and lessens the presence of uric acid in your joints, a major cause of pain and inflammation!
Helps Your Immune System. Lemons are high in vitamin C, which of course is great for fighting colds. Lemon water also aids iron absorption. Iron plays a key role in keeping you from getting sick. \
Gives You Awesome Skin. The antioxidants in lemon water decrease wrinkles and blemishes. They also fight free radical damage. And like any water, lemon water keeps you hydrated, which improves the way your skin looks.
Gets You Potassium. Think bananas are the only way to get the potassium you need? Think again. Lemon water is a great source of potassium, which not only prevents things like foot cramps, it also improves heart health, brain function, and dental hygiene.
