Why You Should Drink Warm Water & Lemon Juice On Regular Basis!
So what's the big fuss over warm water and lemon juice? Here are 5 reasons you should be adding this drink to your daily regimen!
1. Boosts you're immune system
Lemons are high in Vitamin C and potassium. Vitamin C is great for fighting colds and potassium stimulates brain and nerve function and helps control blood pressure.
2. Balances pH
Lemons are an incredibly alkaline food, believe it or not. Yes, they are acidic on their own, but inside our bodies they're alkaline (the citric acid does not create acidity in the body once metabolized). As you wellness warriors know, an alkaline body is really the key to good health.
3. Helps with weight loss
Lemons are high in pectin fiber, which helps fight hunger cravings. It also has been shown that people who maintain a more alkaline di
et lose weight faster. And, my experience is that when I start the day off right, it's easier to make the best choices for myself the rest of the day.
4. Aids digestion
The warm water serves to stimulate the gastrointestinal tract and peristalsis—the waves of muscle contractions within the intestinal walls that keep things moving. Lemons and limes are also high in minerals and vitamins and help loosen the nasty stuff and toxins in the digestive tract.
5. Acts as a gentle, natural diuretic
Lemon juice helps flush out unwanted materials because lemons increase the rate of urination in the body. Toxins are, therefore, released at a faster rate which helps keep your urinary tract healthy.
6. Clears skin
The vitamin C helps decrease wrinkles and blemishes. Lemon water purges toxins from the blood which helps keep skin clear as well.
7. Hydrates the lymph system
The cup of warm awesomeness helps to start the day on a hydrated note, which helps to prevent dehydration for those of you that didn’t get it. It can also help to prevent adrenal fatigue, which when you have that it can build up toxins, give you unwanted stress, make you constipated and so on!
Your adrenal glands are two small glands that sit on the top of your kidneys, they sit there along with your thyroid gland and help to create energy. To make a long story short, when you’re dehydrated everything in your bodies system starts to become discombobulated. Meaning your entire system will get messed up and throw off your entire day.
A simple cup of lemon juice and warm water can help prevent this?
But you have to drink some water throughout the day as well, if not then you will get dehydrated again obviously. But this makes for a good start to the day, so be sure to grab yourself a cup of warm water and some lemon. You don’t need a ton of lemon, just a few squirts from a REAL LEMON, not that lemon juice nonsense you buy in the store.
