I have to say I get RAVE reviews from my clients on introducing them to hot water and lemon. I swear!!!! I have one client who told me her daughter asks before school if she can have some hot water and lemon too. This child is 7 years old. Starting out on healthy habits early…what can be better?
How wonderful that she captured her daughters attention on something healthy to drink and spent some Mommy and Me time sipping…..
Why Hot Water and Lemon?
1. Boosts your immune system: Lemons are high in vitamin C, which is great for fighting colds. They’re high in potassium, which stimulates brain and nerve function. Potassium also helps control blood pressure.
2. Balances pH: Drink lemon water everyday and you’ll reduce your body’s overall acidity. Lemon is one of the most alkaline foods around. Yes, lemon has citric acid but it does not create acidity in the body once metabolized. Drinking lemon water reduces your body’s overall acidity.
3. Alternative to Coffee: I have many clients who say they don’t even want their coffee after a cup of hot water and lemon. Believe me you will feel squeaky clean inside and out!!!
4. Aids in digestion and weight loss : Lemon juice helps flush out unwanted toxins through urination!!!
5. Helps with Constipation: Not only does it detoxify, it helps with the most unwanted issue…Constipation!!! I am being honest now, when I feel this issue coming on I drink hot water with lemon throughout the day…works wonders…
My suggestion first thing that you put in your mouth in the morning should be hot water and lemon….yes, even before your coffee.
Who can resist with all these benefits……
