Having hot water with lemon in the morning can jumpstart your body for the day. Think of it this way: when you wash dishes, you use hot water with soap to get rid food and grease. This way, they are clean for when you use them next. Hot water with lemon in the morning can do a similar thing for your body. It is a way to rejuvenate your body and clean out any toxins that might be lingering in your body before you start your day.
Here are some more reasons as to why you should have hot water with lemon every morning.
Daily Dose Of Vitamin C
Lemons are packed with vitamin C and antibacterial properties. This boosts your immune system, allowing it to keep your body healthy. Additionally, it also helps your body fight off any viruses and/or immune deficiencies.
Maintain Healthy pH Levels
Having healthy pH levels means your body can function to its best abilities. If you have unbalanced pH levels, your digestive system may not be as efficient and you may have higher or lower blood pressure levels. Lemon water helps to keep your pH levels balanced so your body functions smoothly.
Aids Your Digestive System
Hot water with lemon can help promote digestion. Since lemons have citric acid, it can help keep any existing digestive problems at bay. It can also help promote other enzymes in your body and prevent any gastric juices.
Cleanse Your Liver
Many foods can add toxins to your liver without you even knowing. But, lemon juice stimulates your liver, allowing it to cleanse itself of toxins. And, your liver may produce more enzymes since lemon helps to stimulate their production.
