Flushing toxins out of your body is a great plan to help you feel great. Drinking lemon enriched water helps the body to naturally eliminate cellular waste.
Some of the benefits of lemon water include vitamin C, antioxidants and potassium plus their use as an aid to weight loss.
Drinking warm lemon water first thing in the morning can help rehydrate the body, boost digestion, and energy levels.
Why warm water and not cold or boiling?
On a hot summer’s day, naturally we’ll want an ice cold drink. But stop: icy cold water would actually reduce the digestive benefits you would get from lemon water.
Equally, on a cold day, we instinctively want a steaming hot drink. But this too should be avoided as it will destroy many of the enzymes we need from the fresh lemons.
So ideally go for lukewarm / room temperature to get the best effect.
- 1 (8oz) glass of warm filtered water or mineral water.
- 1/2 to 1 lemon.
- 1/2 piece of ginger (optional).
- Add the warm water to your glass.
- Cut the lemon in half and squeeze the juice into the water.
- Add the peeled and sliced ginger to the water (optional).
- Stir, drink and enjoy.
