A great, simple way to help reboot the digestive system, rehydrate and kickstart your body....
1. Helps Digestion
The biggest lemon water benefit may be from the temperature of the water and not even the added lemon. Drinking any water, or especially warm water, first thing in the morning can help flush the digestive system and rehydrate the body.
Think about this… During sleep, you typically haven’t been drinking for at least 8 hours. Giving the body adequate water when you first wake up is a great way to get your body and your mind going.
2. A Natural Flush
The liver is extremely active during sleep since sleep is the body’s time to restore and regenerate. Drinking enough water, especially in the morning, helps make sure that the body can perform these jobs most effectively. There is even some evidence that lemon juice can help stimulate proper stomach acid production and bile production.
Benefits to your body: A happy liver and lymph system!
3. A Little Immune System Boost
Lemons contain Vitamin C… not a spectacularly high amount, but 30-50 mg per lemon. They also contain potassium.
Drinking lemon water first thing in the morning gives the body a chance to absorb these vitamins effectively and can provide a little immune boost.
Vitamin C is also good for the adrenals and can potentially help reduce the affects of stress.
4. Happier Skin
By helping flush the body and improve digestion, lemon water can lead to cleaner skin. It also contains Vitamin C which is needed for collagen production for smooth, healthy skin.
5. Healthy Weight
There is evidence that drinking water, especially lemon water, first thing in the morning can help maintain a healthy weight.
Of course, drinking water (or lemon water) by itself isn’t going to be a miracle weight loss solution, but with other healthy habits, it can help maintain a healthy weight.
Been doing a bit of a stock inventory today, & getting some more prints framed up ready to take to #sourpussemporium this week. 💚💙💖 Various sizes available, DM for enquiries or see link to my online shop in bio 😙#lotsofgreen#greenprints#greenery @sourpussdesignsanddecor
So this is what a normal days breakfast is. Bacon, avocado. A green smoothie with kale, spinach, celery, cucumber, mint, lime and super matcha green tea powder, and a cup of English tea with soya milk. I don't eat refined carbs, sugar or dairy ever and haven't for the past year and a half. Diet doesn't effect my acne I just eat healthy foods for my whole body's benefit not because it's apparently good for the skin #diet#healthy#greens#matcha#yorkshiretea#skin#acne#adultacne#doxycycline#acnetreatment
I woke up today feeling like having a cup of matcha latte. 🌿 Good thing my sister lives only two stairs up from my apartment, with her pantry full of healthy powders including matcha 😉🍃Xx / M
