Why You Should Learn to Love Lemons

April 04, 2015 2 min read

Lemon water does more than hydrate the body so I thought I would compile a list of the many health benefits of lemons! LemonWater-start
  1. Lemon water tastes great making it easier to drink. Optimal hydration benefits each and every cell in our body.
  2. It dissolves mucus in the body.
  3. Flushes the liver and aids the detoxification process.
  4. The liver can produce more enzymes with the help of lemon juice than any other food element.
  5. Great source of acid.
  6. Improves digestion.
  7. Hot or warm lemon water upon waking encourages the formation of bile, preparing the digestive tract for the day’s meals and also encourages the excretion of the waste and bacteria that accumulated overnight in the bowels.
  8. Combats h.pylori infection in the stomach.
  9. Lemons are both antiseptic and antibacterial which wards off illness such as infection and colds.
  10. Great source of minerals potassium, calcium, magnesium and phosphorus
  11. Improves the absorption of minerals. For example oxalates in dark leafy greens.
  12. Alkalizes the body even though lemons are acidic in their raw state.
  13. Great source of vitamin C, which is an antioxidant that is well known for its role in boosting the immune system and wound healing.
  14. Relieves symptoms of indigestion such as heartburn, bloating and burping.
  15. Relieves constipation.
  16. Breaks down fat and accelerates weight loss.
  17. Lemon water can help relieve a sore throat.
  18. Lemons contain antioxidants, which deactivates the free radicals preventing many dangerous diseases like stroke, cardiovascular diseases and cancers.
  19. Lemon juice is said to give a glow to the skin and can help fight the signs of aging.
The take-away message is to drink lemon water and drink it regularly! Try replacing your morning coffee or tea with a steaming hot cup of lemon water. Click here to check out more from Gillian

Shipping & Delivery

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.
