In late August I found a YouTube Channel Simnett Nutrition and he discussed the benefits of drinking warm lemon water to start his day on an empty stomach. He used it to detoxify his system and help balance out his body’s pH Levels. And that spoke right to me. I drink a lot of coffee and I try to balance out the coffee with Alkaline water but I didn’t think it was enough. I’m a firm believer if you start your day right you are more likely to seize the day. So I thought why not give it a go, I was told also it was a nice alternative to coffee a more natural energy booster so to me this sounded perfect (it did not give me energy).
My system does feel less toxic and I believe is a nice balance to the coffee I consume. But if you add Matcha to your warm lemon water there is a natural source of energy and that does work for a pick me up.
Drinking a warm lemon water first thing in the morning on an empty stomach is a great way to start your day off right. Some of the key benefits of doing so are: The lemon water acts as a detoxify agent by flushing toxins from your system. While this is happening a happy side effect is that is repairs your digestive system. It helps build a happy healthy system. And because it is helpful with removing toxins, it helps keep you regular. With the high levels of vitamin C, potassium, calcium, phosphorus, and magnesium, it helps keep your immune system strong, which means less colds! It is also good for you skin, I’ve personally have notice my back acne has gotten better, and lemon water helps with a wide range of skin problems such as acne, rashes, dark spots, and for us aging, wrinkles. Lemon water for those who like good dental hygiene, helps there too. Lemon water helps with toothaches, gingivitis and fights inflammation of your tonsils (if you still have them). (1) For all you gym goes trying to shed a few pounds, lemon water helps there too. Lemon water can help boost your metabolism to help you with weight loss, keeps you hydrated with it’s natural electrolytes. It also helps with your joints and muscle.
