Start the day out with a mug of warm water and the juice of half a lemon. It's so simple and the benefits are just too good to ignore.
Warm water with lemon:
1. Boosts you're immune system
... Lemons are high in Vitamin C and potassium. Vitamin C is great for fighting colds and potassium stimulates brain & nerve function and helps control blood pressure.
2. Balances pH
...Lemons are an incredibly alkaline food, believe it or not. Yes, they are acidic on their own, but inside our bodies they're alkaline (the citric acid does not create acidity in the body once metabolized). Remember, an alkaline body is really the key to good health.
3. Helps with weight loss
...Lemons are high in pectin fiber, which helps fight hunger cravings. It also has been shown that people who maintain a more alkaline diet lose weight faster. And, my experience is that when I start the day off right, it's easier to make the best choices for myself the rest of the day.
4. Aids digestion
...The warm water serves to stimulate the gastrointestinal tract and peristalsis (the waves of muscle contractions within the intestinal walls that keep things moving).
5. Acts as a gentle, natural diuretic
...Lemon juice helps flush out unwanted materials because lemons increase the rate of urination in the body. Toxins are, therefore, released at a faster rate which helps keep your urinary tract healthy.
6. Clears skin
...The vitamin C helps decrease wrinkles and blemishes. Lemon water purges toxins from the blood which helps keep skin clear as well.
7. Hydrates the lymph system —
