“The key to success lies in your daily habits” -Jen Sincero, You Are a Badass
I’d heard about the benefits of drinking lemon water upon waking yet it wasn’t until I learned about Medical Medium that I began to take notice. Now it’s the first thing I do every morning followed by 16 ounces of celery juice. The journey to wellness can feel unbelievably overwhelming. If you’re just beginning to make lifestyle changes start small and build from there. You’d be surprised at how many benefits your body can receive by simply adding in a morning glass of lemon water daily.
According to Medical Medium…
“Lemon water is the perfect way to hydrate, purify, and revitalize your body each morning. Water coming straight from the tap or a bottle has lost its vitality and its innate living structure. By adding fresh squeezed lemon juice, you “wake up” the water and bring it back to life. This allows it to travel more deeply into your tissues and cells and carry the essential nutrients and compounds you need in order to thrive.
Lemon water is a good source of vitamins C and B and minerals such as calcium and magnesium. Lemon water is excellent for weight loss, the immune system, alkalizing the body, controlling high blood pressure, anti-aging, detoxification, purifying the blood, and regulating body temperature. Lemon water is particularly beneficial for the digestive tract and can help relieve constipation, nausea, and even parasites.
Lemon water is also good for the cardiovascular and muscular system making it an ideal drink before and after exercise. Consider an early morning ritual of squeezing half a lemon into 16oz (or more) of your best quality purified water upon waking. This deep form of hydration will awaken your mind and energize your body for the day.
Lemon/lime water has the added benefit of helping to break up any sediment and stones in the gallbladder, allowing for bile production in the liver to increase, hydrochloric acid levels in the gut to rise, and reduction of the bad acids that cause acid reflux.”
So there you have it folks…a glass of Lemon water a day keeps the doctor away!
