When life gives you lemons, you are basically invincible. You also have the power to cleanse your bowels and body.
Starting the day with a glass of warm water with fresh squeezed lemon juice not only helps you drink more water (leading to increased hydration and weight loss), but also has a variety of nutritional and physical benefits.
Although an acid outside of the body, lemon becomes alkaline when digesting, helping to balance the pH level of your body.
Maintaining a healthy alkaline level reduces inflammation and can reduce your risk of osteoporosis. Great news, right?!
Warm water with lemon can also stimulate the digestive tract and increase bile, which will help you naturally cleanse.
While lemon water may assist with acid reflux side effects when digested, some people with strong heartburn and stomach ulcers may experience worsening of symptoms.
Kick your digestive system into gear:
- Prepare a cup of warm or room temperature water each day
- Squeeze the juice of ¼ – ½ lemon to the water
