This is how I start my day, every day…Lemon water! What’s so great about lemons?? There are so many benefits to starting your day with warm lemon water. Here are just a few:
- It cleanses the liver
- It is a digestive aid
- High in vitamin C and potassium
- Boosts your immune system
- Helps with weight loss
- Purifies the blood
- Has an alkalizing effect on the body
- Nourishes the brain cells
- Clears the skin
- Helps control unhealthy bacteria – fights off colds and flu’s
Next time you’re at the grocery store pick up a few, they are the cheapest fruit out there. Start every morning with a warm (yes, just warm or even room temperature – not boiling) glass of water, add the juice from half a lemon and drink this down on an empty stomach before you eat breakfast.
Kick it up a level by adding 1-2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar (look for ones with “the mother”) to speed up weight loss, a few dashes of cinnamon (look for Ceylon cinnamon) to lower blood sugar and act as an anti-inflammatory and/or a dash of cayenne to aid in detox.
