All night your body works hard to clean out all the dirt you put in it during the day. So why not help it clear it. Give your body a huge thankyou by drinking a glass of warm water with freshly squeezed lemon in it!
Some of the benefits include:
- Boosts the immune system; thanks to the amount of vitamin C in lemons
- Balances your pH
- Helps with weight loss
- Aids in digestion
- Clears skin
- Hydrates the lymph system
After this post I realised I don't do this every day. So to ensure I was really practicing what I was preaching I spent the next 4 weeks drinking lemon water every morning.
I used 1/8th of a lemon in a tall glass of warm water. I drank this before I did anything else every morning.
My initial findings:
- I felt much fresher after my lemon water in the mornings
- The harsh sleep taste was exterminated in just a few sips and I became kissable!
- My bowl motions were consistant and comfortable
- I felt 100%, no niggling colds or sickness
- I lost a kilo or two
- I felt alot more calm
- My skin became dry and tight especially on my face
Most of my findings were great and really gave me and myself a fresh and wonderful start to the day.
But dry skin demonstrated that although it was clearing out all the nasties it was also washing away things that I needed too. So I have opted for warm water with a teaspoon of honey most mornings and lemon water twice per week or as a cleanse for 5days a month. I'm still gaining the great benefits and my skin has gained its lustre again.
