Benefits of Lemon Water
Drink Hot Lemon Water Every Morning. When you crawl out of bed all bleary-eyed and sluggish, your first thought is probably to hunt down a strong dose of caffeine. But, try foregoing your morning java and instead begin your day with a soothing mug of hot lemon water. The benefits are amazing, especially when taken first thing in the morning on an empty stomach. It can:
* Balance your body's PH (lemons are one of the most alkalizing foods you can eat)
* Stimulate your digestive system
* Purify your liver and help flush out toxins
* Support your immune system
* Improve your body's ability to absorb nutrients
* Help prevent urinary tract infections
* May encourage weight loss
Squeeze the juice from 1/4-1/2 lemon into a mug and add hot water.
Lemon peel contains a lot of nutrients so, for extra benefits, grate some of the zest into your drink as well. Enjoy!
