3 Reasons to Drink Lemon Water Every Morning
When life gives you lemons, make lemon water! When you wake up in the morning your body is dehydrated and needs clean, pure water to filter out toxins and increase energy production in your cells. Here are the top three reasons to drink lemon water every morning:
Increase Energy & Concentration: Lemons are high in potassium and a good source of folate. The potassium in lemons helps stimulate brain and nerve function and also helps regulate blood pressure. Folate helps to keep your energy level high.
Detox Your Liver: D-limonene is an antioxidant found in lemons and limes. By drinking lemon water, your liver will release uric acid that will aid in the liver’s natural detoxification process.
Smooth, Glowing Skin: The juice from a lemon is a natural antiseptic medicine. Lemon water acts as a blood purifier by purging toxins from the blood and keeping skin clear of blemishes.
To successfully get in the habit of drinking lemon water every morning, we recommend taking steps to prepare it the night before. Reduce the time it will take to heat up your water by setting up your electric tea pot, preparing you Keurig or just have a mug ready by the microwave. When you wake up and head to the kitchen, add 8 ounces of warm water to your mug and follow it with the juice from half of a lemon.
Take your lemon water (and your metabolism) to next level by adding a teaspoon of honey, a dash of cinnamon or cayenne pepper, or a splash of apple cider vinegar.
