A Morning Drink of Warm Water and Lemon Juice Can Deliver Some Wonderful Results
If you’ve ever heard the simple quote of ‘Big doors swing on little hinges’ by W Clement Stone you’ll know that some truly great outcomes can come from taking very small actions.
Drinking lemon in warm water in the morning is something that fits into the category of being a small ‘hinge’ that can improve your daily life whilst delivering excellent health benefits.
As for making it part of your daily routine, it’s fairly easy to get into. In the morning, warm a cup of water in the kettle and squeeze half a lemon into it. The reason the water needs to be warmed is so that you don’t shock your system, as cold water has a tendency to do. This effect could prevent some of the health benefits from taking effect.
Lemon and citrus fruits are well known for their cleansing potential and that’s why they are often included as part of the ingredients of manufactured cleaning products.
The lemon can work wonders on the human body too, clearing away anything from skin infections to colds and flus. Here are some more health giving benefits:
Hydration. Staying hydrated is essential for a healthy body. We are made up of up to 65% water and without keeping hydrated to this level, we cannot operate to our full capacity.
Freshens skin. Vitamin C is rife in lemons and your skin will reap the rewards of you having taken a drink of it in your water. Vitamin C not only helps in the production of collagen but it will also help to keep your skin clear.
Immune system. One of nature’s most powerful infection fighters is produced by our bodies. When consumed vitamin C converts to hydrogen peroxide and this will battle pathogens and any germs to keep you healthy and well. Hydrogen peroxide – otherwise known as H2O2 is produced in breast milk to keep babies healthy.
Clean your liver. Your liver needs all the help it can get to keep your blood clean of waste products. Drinking lemon in water will help it to produce the enzymes that it needs in order to do its job.
Drinking lemon in warm water every morning is a habit that will reward you with good health and a more powerful immune system.
