Lemons have been used for centuries to detoxify the body and cleanse the liver. Lemon has the unique quality of tasting great while still treating ailments such as throat infections, indigestion, constipation, fever and high blood pressure.
Simply drinking a glass of room-temperature lemon water shortly after waking up is an easy and effective way to promote amazing health benefits from the outside, in. One of the best benefits of lemon is the fact that it can balance out our bodies’ alkalinity. Our bodies’ pH levels can either be described as acidic or alkaline. The body works best when it is in a state of homeostasis – a state of equilibrium, or balance. In order to achieve that balance you must have a blood pH that is slightly alkaline. Drinking room-temperature lemon water will automatically transition your body to an alkaline state, while also kick starting digestion, and flushing out your system for morning elimination.
If possible, we recommend purchasing organic lemons for this morning ritual that are free from preservatives and pesticides. We emphasize the use of room temperature distilled water, as cold water is a shock to the body and can effectively shut down your digestion instead of stimulating it.
This morning routine is a nutritious and energizing way to start your day, try implementing this instead of coffee and see how amazing you feel!
