I like to start each morning with a glass of warm water and lemon. Lemon juice has a positive impact on your overall health.
Squeeze half a lemon into the most pure water you have and drink up! I like warm water bc I feel like I am having a cup of tea. If you are not a fan have it room temp. Ice cold water is harder for your body to process.
Lemon is packed with tons of good stuff; vitamin-C, B-Complex, iron, magnesium, potassium, fiber and calcium. All of these substances make lemons’ immune-boosting and a digestive aid! Because lemon is rich in vitamin C, it helps with inflammation, your overall immune system and the body in fighting off colds and the flu. Which is especially great for this time of the year. Lemon as we all know is a citrus fruit, however when processed inside the body has an alkalizing effect, helping to increase the bodies pH. Having a proper pH balance helps to ward of disease and inventions that can easily grow in an acidic body. So not only does lemon help you in flu season, it helps to better ward of cancer and other more serious illnesses.
Lemon juice and your bodies natural digestive juices have a similar structure. Drinking lemon helps to speed up the digestive process and clean out your system more efficiently. Lemon also helps to reduce appetite. Certain fibers found in most citrus fruits create a feeling of fullness, therefore reducing the urge to eat unhealthy snacks throughout the day.
There are many other benefits to lemons, but these two reason are good enough for me!
