5 Healthy Reasons To Boost Your Day With Lemon Water


5 Healthy Reasons To Boost Your Day With Lemon Water

Do you love lemons? I use lemons, not only in my drinks, but in my cooking too. I start every day off with a pint of lemon water. Why? Because it’s EXCELLENT for my good health. When you join a health and fitness group of mine, one of the things I’ll ask you to do every day is to increase your water intake. It’s easy to do and your body will love you for it.

As soon as you wake up, drink a large glass of water.  Ideally squeeze the juice of half a lemon into it:  Avoid the lemon in a bottle juice – it’s devoid of many of the nutrients you get in a fresh lemon.  And after all, that’s the whole point of adding lemon juice into our water.

Can you imagine staying awake for 7 or 8 hours and not drinking anything?  Well that’s what your body does overnight every night.  What’s more, if you get hot in bed, your dehydration will be worse.  We all need to flush our systems in the morning.  As soon as you wake up is best.  Even if you don’t feel thirsty in the morning, the chances are your body is dehydrated.

So, what are the health benefits of boosting your early day with a pint of water and freshly squeezed lemon juice?

5 reasons to drink lemon water when you wake up

– Lemon water helps to flush out the toxins within your system that have accumulated overnight. A body free of toxins will lose weight faster as you create a healthy environment within your system.

– When you add lemon juice to water you’re getting a boost of vitamin C and a variety of minerals that BOOST your immune system, DETOX your liver and AID digestion. What’s more, these vitamins and minerals will also help you to lose weight.

– The brain is made up of approximately 75% water. If you are dehydrated, so is your brain. A thirsty brain will not function as efficiently as a brain which is well watered and fed with vitamins and minerals..

– Drinking a large glass of lemon water helps to rev up your metabolism for the day ahead.  It makes you more productive and more focused and helps prevent weight gain..

– Lemon water will help prevent you overindulging at the breakfast table. If your stomach is full of water, it won’t need so much food to help fill the hole.

So, what are you waiting for?! Grab a glass of good old H2O with freshly squeezed lemon juice and start your day off with a commitment to improving your health.

You’ll feel a whole lot better for introducing this simple morning routine into your life. There are no negatives for doing it, just a whole lot of positives, so if you’ve not tried it before, give it a go today.
