Lemon water, warm or cooled, can be one of the most rewarding things you do for your body every morning. Among brushing your teeth and getting dressed, this morning detox ritual is one you definitely don’t want to leave behind.
1.) Detoxifying Cure
Lemon is a natural antiseptic and helps the liver by flushing the toxins and bacteria out of your body. The high amounts of Vitamin C in the lemon act as a potent antioxidant to clean out the system, especially when taken on an empty stomach.
2.) Weight Loss
Believe it or not, the cleansing properties of lemon get rid of extra internal waste in your colon. Think of lemon water as a stream going through your body. Unlike a pancake or muffin that requires chewing, digestion, absorption, etc., lemon juice goes straight to the liver, colon, and GI tract to cleanse your body. An added bonus is the pectin fibers in lemon, which help keep you fuller longer.
