We are surrounded by toxins everywhere; they are in the air we breathe, the water we drink, the shampoos and other skin care products we use, and last, but not least, in the food we eat.
Needless to say, these toxins negatively affect your body in a number of ways – they disrupt your metabolism and hormones, weaken your digestive system, and use your energy.
Luckily, there’s one thing you can do every morning upon waking up that will help your body get rid of these toxins, improve your digestion, boost your metabolism, and increase your energy. The best thing is that it only takes less than a minute to prepare!
WHAT YOU DO:
- Immediately upon waking up, squeeze about 1/2 – 1 lemon (depending on size of the lemon) into an 8 oz. glass of warm or room temperature purified water. This is much gentler on your body first thing in the morning compared to ice cold water.
- Drink this at least 10 minutes before consuming anything else.
- Make sure you never use bottled lemon juice to make this drink. Instead, use organic lemons to avoid pesticides.
There are 3 major benefits of taking this drink first thing in the morning and these relate to your body, health, and energy:
- Better digestion
Lemon juice helps your body improve digestion and stimulates bile production. Lemon juice can even prevent heartburn and indigestion.
- More energy
Even just the scent of lemon juice has proved to improve your mood and energy levels, and at the same time reduce anxiety. Plus the detoxifying and alkalizing effect of fresh organic lemon juice can improve your energy because it eliminates toxins in your body.
- Weight loss
Lemon juice helps to improve your digestive system, stimulates detoxification, and boosts your energy levels, and all of this helps you lose body fat as well improve your hormonal balance.
To feel the health benefits of warm lemon water, add it to your dietary morning regime.
