Why Your Day Needs Lemon Water #2: Enhance Mineral Absorption

February 18, 2015 1 min read

Did you know that drinking warm lemon water will help your body to get more minerals from the food you eat? If you want to have a healthy body, you need all the minerals you can get! Your body needs a wide variety of minerals to function properly: calcium for your bones, potassium and sodium for muscular function, iron for red blood cells, and so on. All of these minerals are digested in the small intestine, but first they must be broken down in the stomach. [caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="600"] Source: www.q8rashaqa.com[/caption] By drinking lemon water, you enhance the effectiveness of your stomach acid. This ensures that the food is broken down sufficiently, making it easy for your intestines to absorb the minerals. Drinking lemon water with your meal will ensure that you get the maximum amount of minerals from the food you eat. Did You Know:It's estimated by the World Health Organization that up to 80% of Americans are magnesium deficient. Vitamin C is necessary for magnesium absorption, so drink your lemon water!

Shipping & Delivery

Fast, Express Shipping.

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. While health and wellness companies are essential services, there is simply an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as individuals and hospitals need more supplies than ever before. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-5 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. You will receive the tools you need to stay safe and strong at home through this difficult time. Thanks for your support and understanding.

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.

Clothing

All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
