Sometimes the best cures are in our kitchen.
With this in mind, we have a potent cure in the form of warm lemon water.
Organic lemons are packed with nutrients, including riboflavin, vitamin C, B-1, B-2, B-6 and minerals such as calcium, phosphorus and magnesium.
With warm water, lemons provide amazing health benefits.
Please use filtered water to get the full benefits.
Aids with digestion:
Warm lemon water helps to eliminate waste in the body.
It helps with nausea, constipation, diarrhea and parasites.
It also relieves indigestion and allows food to digest properly.
Aids Weight Loss:
Lemons are high in pectin fiber, which helps suppress food cravings.
It also helps the body eliminate waste products by cleansing and detoxifying it.
By maintaining a more alkaline diet, you will lose weight faster.
Restores the body’s PH:
A food’s acid content is reflected in its pH value. Most foods contain naturally occurring acids to give them acidic values on the pH scale. A food’s pH value is often not the same in the body.
Lemons even though acidic, when inside our body are alkaline- forming when their compounds are released for absorption through the metabolic process.
With water lemons restore the body’s PH balance.
Purifies the liver:
Our body is exposed to toxins daily. The liver filters the toxins from the blood; after the toxins are filtered out of the bloodstream, they turn into free radicals. Free radicals are bad for the liver; the vitamin C in the warm lemon water cleanse the liver by removing toxin build up.
Hydrates the lymphatic system:
Warm lemon water stimulates the lymphatic system to remove the toxins accumulated in the lymph glands, colon, and bladder.
Warm lemon water hydrates the body and prevents adrenal fatigue. A dehydrated body can’t perform its regular work. Adrenal glands secrete important hormones, including aldosterone.
It also regulates water levels and the concentration of minerals, like sodium helping us stay hydrated.
Immune system booster:
Warm lemon water can boost your immune system as the juice of one lemon contains 18.6 milligrams of vitamin C, and a wedge provides 2.3 milligrams. Vitamin c helps ward off colds.
Lemon itself is a natural diuretic and will increase the rate of urination. As a result, lemons help clean our urinary tract and free it of infections.
It is also believed to aid in the dissolution of gallstones. If you are trying to lose weight, this is a great weight loss drink.
In 1 cup of warm filtered water add the juice of 1/2 of an organic lemon.
Drink twice a day: Before breakfast and before going to bed at night.
Make sure lemons are organic and the water is filtered.
We recommend Aquasana as a reputable source for water filters.
