5 Reasons To Start Your Day With Lemon Water

I start everyday off with a cup of warm lemon water, and you should too! It's an amazing and simple way to cleanse, balance, and detoxify your body. Here are five reasons you should start every morning with warm lemon water: 1. Detoxify. Warm lemon water acts as a liver cleaser with its high antioxidant content by assisting in detoxification. It purifies the liver by encouraging the production of bile, and it also promotes healthy liver function by strengthening liver enzymes. 2. Aids Digestion. Warm water helps keep things moving. Lemons are high in minerals, vitamins, and have a similar atomic structure to your natural digestive juices... they aid digestion and cleanse the bowel by flushing out waste and toxins more efficiently. Warm lemon water also helps your body absorb & digest nutrients more efficiently, reducing indigestion and bloating! 3. Balances pH. Lemons are one of the most alkaline foods, despite their acidic taste (The citric acid in lemons, does not create acidity in the body once metabolized). Your body needs a balanced pH for optimal function and health. Too much acidity in the body causes inflammation and a variety of health issues. 4. Clears Skin. The high antioxidant and vitamin C levels in lemons help combat free radicals within the body, decreasing wrinkles. Warm lemon water also purges toxins from the blood which helps fight blemishes. 5. Hydrates The Lymphatic System. The lymphatic system is also responsible for removing toxins from the body. Not only does lemon water cleanse your body, it also hydrates your lymph system which stimulates the elimination process. When your body is dehydrated, it can't perform all of it's proper functions which can lead to toxic buildup and stress. Making it a habit to drink one cup of warm lemon water first thing every morning can radically change your day. Try it out for a month! The recipe is simple, just a cup of warm water (not hot) and the juice from half a fresh lemon. XO Amanda
