Adding Warm Lemon water first thing in the morning is one of the easiest most beneficial things you can do for your self, long story short, it changed my life!
Here are my top 5 reasons you should add it to your morning routine!
- Reduces Inflammation. This is major to me. Arthritis, IBS, allergies and much more, all cause inflammation. Which is why I added it in the number 1 spot. Lemon water removes uric acid in your joints, which is one of the main causes of inflammation. Its just plain good for your joints, and reduces pain.
- Cleanses your body – Lemon water enhances enzyme function, which stimulates your liver to help detox your body. During sleep your liver is working over time to cleanse the body of all those nasties, waking up to a nice warm glass of lemon water will reward your body after a night of hard work.
- Gives you a boost of energy – Lemon water reduces the acidity of your body, making a more balanced Ph, which helps energy flow.
- Helps your immune system- Vitamin C! The first thing to drop when you are stressed is your vitamin c levels, making it easier for you to become sick. drinking it first thing in the morning on an empty stomach is a great way to help your body more properly absorb this vitamin.
- Aids in Weight loss – Drinking water will help, drinking lemon water will change every thing. It has added fiber which will help you stay full longer, and aids in digestion.
Drinking warm lemon water first thing in the morning can help flush the digestive system and re hydrate your body.
