We’ve been reading and hearing everywhere lately that drinking LEMON WATER every morning is good for health. But WHY? Find out!
One of the best daily practices that you should follow is drinking a glass of freshly squeezed lemon in warm water, first thing in the morning (on an empty stomach).
The way you start each day is incredibly important. Whether you’re a mom, a coach, a writer, a small business owner or a yoga teacher, what you do first thing in the morning matters.
According to Ayurvedic philosophy, choices that you make regarding your daily routine either build up resistance to disease or tear it down. Ayurveda invites us to get a jump-start on the day by focusing on morning rituals that work to align the body with nature’s rhythms, balance the doshas and foster self-esteem alongside self-discipline.
Your mind may say you have to check emails, take the dog out, get the kids out the door, that you can’t be late for work or that you just don’t have enough time to cultivate your own morning rituals.
But, if you can only make time for one ritual that will improve your health, let it be this. Start the day out with a mug of warm water and the juice of half a lemon in it. It’s so simple and the benefits are just too good to ignore. Warm water with lemon:
1. It helps in detoxification of the body
The acidity of the lemon helps the body to restore its natural PH, balance and the combination of lemon and warm water awakens the liver and stimulates the expulsion of toxins from the body.
2. Boosts Your Immune System
Being a powerful antioxidant, lemon can protect your body from various free radicals and also strengthen your immune system.
This drink is a natural energizer.
3. Revitalize your skin
It is of immense benefit to the skin, and it prevents the formation of wrinkles and acne.
