Benefits of Drinking Lemon Water Every Morning
Even the smallest changes in your routine can have a big impact on your health.
There’s been a lot of talk about lemon water benefits and what it can do for your system when you drink it every day. Always drink your lemon water hot in the morning. Your digestive system and other internal organs have been rejuvenating themselves all night, and a cold beverage is not the wake up call they need.
Here a some reasons why you should incorporate this into your morning routine.
Lemon water first thing in the morning will help you digest your breakfast better, which means your body will be able to absorb the nutrients from your breakfast more effectively. You’ll also be helping your digestive system release stored up toxins.
The morning is the best time to start the hydration process, as you’ve been sleeping all night with no intake of water.
WEIGHT LOSS FRIENDLY
Lemons are high in pectin fiber, which helps fight hunger cravings. Studies have shown people who maintain a more alkaline diet, do in fact lose weight faster.
The vitamin C component as well as other antioxidants helps decrease wrinkles and blemishes and it helps to combat free radical damage. Vitamin C is vital for healthy glowing skin while its alkaline nature kills some types of bacteria known to cause acne. Since lemon water purges toxins from your blood, it would also be helping to keep your skin clear of blemishes from the inside out. The vitamin C contained in the lemon rejuvenates the skin from within your body.
Lemon juice helps flush out unwanted materials in part because lemons increase the rate of urination in the body. Therefore toxins are released at a faster rate which helps keep your urinary tract healthy. The citric acid in lemons helps maximize enzyme function, which stimulates the liver and aids in detoxification.
HOW TO MAKE (AND TAKE) LEMON WATER
