When life gives you lemons...squeeze 'em!
Warm lemon water first thing in the morning on an empty stomach. Make it a habit every morning and start on the road to discipline and creating your new health routine.
Lemon is a citrus fruit and an awesome one at that. Allergies to citrus fruits are rare, but if you are, this one isn’t for you (water minus the lemon is still a good idea though).
Following about 8 hours of no food or drink, warm water with lemon is an Ayurvedic practice to help clear the digestive tract of toxins that have built up overnight. Your body restores and regenerates itself while you sleep. The liver works hard so helping it flush out toxins is a great start to the day! Loaded with vitamin C, lemon is an immune-boosting powerhouse that also has antibacterial and antiviral properties.
Additional amazing things made possible by making this part of your morning routine:
Helps maintain the pH balance of the body
Popular remedy for a spectrum of skin issues including acne, rashes, wrinkles and dark spots
Anti-inflammatory properties help in fighting respiratory infections
Helps keep the body hydrated by providing electrolytes
Helps reduce muscle and joint pain
Easy peasy, lemon squeezy ingredients:
8 oz. of warm water
Juice of half a lemon
Pour the warm water into a glass or mug, add lemon juice, mix and sip slowly.
After drinking, it's a good idea to swish room temperature or warm water in your mouth to rinse the lemon juice off your teeth.
