Starting your day off with warm water and the juice of half a lemon will help stimulate your digestive tract, improve your skin, support detoxing, help with acid reflux, and make your body more alkaline. Watch this video right now:

Learn how easy it can be to make this a part of your daily routine:

1) Supports Immune Function

Lemons are high in vitamin C, which is great for giving our body the immune boost it needs to stay in check. They are known for its supportive role in healthy immune function. Ascorbic acid (vitamin C) found in lemons demonstrates anti-inflammatory effects.

2) Balances pH Levels

Our pH level balances the alkaline and acidic properties in the body. When our body enters a more acidic state, it breeds sickness and disease.

This is news to many people, because so often disease feels like an isolated event that can’t be controlled. While there are many factors to disease, controlling what you can is a great way to give your body the attention it deserves. Add more alkaline foods, and your whole body starts to wake up, repair, fight, and become a power-house of healing and rejuvenating. Lemon is one of the most alkaline foods around! (source)

3) Helps Weight Loss

Drinking lemon water is regarded by many professional nutritionists as having real and palpable weight-loss powers. Far from a weight loss myth, but, rather, a weight loss reality, drinking lemon water helps to speed up weight loss.

Reduces Hunger Cravings:

Because of pectin fiber’s presence in lemon, lemon water has the effect of reducing your hunger. If you have tried to kill your appetite in the past with such drinks such as coffee or tea, try lemon water from now on, and also get the benefit of zero calories when you drink it. (source)

4) Improves Digestion

Citrus flavonols8 are believed responsible for lemon’s traditional use as a digestive tonic. Lemon juice helps flush out unwanted materials. It encourages the liver to produce bile which is an acid that required for digestion. Efficient digestion reduces heartburn and constipation.

5) Keeps Skin Clear

Vitamin C and other antioxidants in lemons combat free radical damage:

Free radical damage — especially as caused by UV exposure and environmental toxins — is responsible for many symptoms of aging. Antioxidant intake can help offset this damage, minimizing wrinkles. Further, lemon juice can be applied topically to scars and age spots to help reduce their appearance. Traditionally used as a liver stimulant, lemon water is also believed to help purge toxins from the blood, helping to keep skin clear of blemishes. (source)
