Drinking warm lemon water every morning is good for you

LEMMON is strong antibacterial, antiviral, and immune-boosting powers. It is also a digestive aid and liver cleanser. According to research, Lemon contains many substances like citric acid, calcium, magnesium, vitamin C, bioflavonoid, pectin, and limonene that promote immunity and fight infection.

BENEFITS

  • It aids digestion. Lemon juice flushes out unwanted materials and toxins from the body. Its atomic composition is similar to saliva and the hydrochloric acid of digestive juices. It encourages the liver to produce bile which is an acid that is required for digestion. Lemons are also high in minerals and vitamins and help loosen toxins in the digestive tract.

  • Lemon juice helps flush out unwanted materials in part because lemons increase the rate of urination in the body. Therefore toxins are released at a faster rate which helps keep your urinary tract healthy.
  • Lemon helps to relieve symptoms of indigestion, such as heartburn, belching and bloating.
  • It boosts your immune system.  Lemons are high in vitamin C, which is great for fighting colds. They’re high in potassium, which stimulates brain and nerve function. Potassium also helps control blood pressure. Ascorbic acid (vitamin C) found in lemons demonstrates anti-inflammatory effects, and is used as complementary support for asthma and other respiratory symptoms. Lemons also reduce the amount of phlegm produced by the body.
  • Lemon balances PH levels. Lemons are one of the most alkalizing foods for the body.

Sure, they are acidic on their own, but inside our bodies they’re alkaline (the citric acid does not create acidity in the body once metabolized).

Lemons contain both citric and ascorbic acid, weak acids easily metabolized from the body allowing the mineral content of lemons to help alkalize the blood. Disease states only occur when the body pH is acidic.  Drinking lemon water regularly can help to remove overall acidity in the body, including uric acid in the joints, which is one of the primary causes of pain and inflammation.

  • Since lemon water purges toxins from your blood, it would also be helping to keep your skin clear of blemishes from the inside out. The vitamin C contained in the lemon rejuvenates the skin from within your body.
  • It promotes healing.  Ascorbic acid (vitamin C), found in abundance in lemons, promotes wound healing, and is an essential nutrient in the maintenance of healthy bones, connective tissue, and cartilage. As noted previously, vitamin C also displays anti-inflammatory properties. Combined, vitamin C is an essential nutrient in the maintenance of good health and recovery from stress and injury.

How to prepare it

Cut fresh lemons, organic if possible but never bottled lemon juice. Squeeze 1/2 a lemon inside a glass of warm water and drink it first in the morning before eating.

NOTE: Consult your doctor before you start any healthy practice
