Lemon water is more than a flavorful way to drink your water. The simple act of adding lemons to your water makes it a powerful superfood.
Lemon water helps cleanse your liver. So it’s a great drink to have after a night where you drunk alcohol.
Lemon water also balances the ph of your body. So anytime you you need to detox or cleanse your cells, lemon water can help.
This tonic is great for clearing the skin. A clean liver = clear skin because your body is no longer so overloaded with toxins that it purges them through your skin. the vitamin C also helps with collagen production in the skin, which keeps it firm and youthful.
Improve your digestion with lemon water. In Japan, it’s tradition to drink warm water with lemon juice in the morning before eating. This warms up the digestive system and gently introduces it to food. Also, it helps boost the metabolism, which aids in weight loss.
It’s so easy to get in a daily intake of lemon water. But some lemons next time you go to the store and slice them up and put them in a bowl in the frig to grab when you get a cup of water. If you’re going to put the whole slice of lemon in your water, then make sure you get organic lemon and wash the outside of the lemon like you would any other fruit. As the lemon soaks in your water, you don’t want to consume harmful herbicides and toxins.
Also, when you order water at a restaurant, ask for a slice of lemon. Don’t worry, servers are use to the request.
I love lemon water. It’s such a hydrating and refreshing drink, especially in the summer.
