Today I’m going to reveal 5 specific reasons you should start your day with warm lemon water.
Plus, ONE thing you can add to the water, which will dramatically improve your immune system, reduce stress, improve gut health, and lower your appetite – especially for sugars.
5 Reasons To Have Warm Lemon Water In The Morning
First, most people are dehydrated, especially when they wake up. So, simply having any sort of water is good.
- Vitamin C
Citrus fruits are high in Vitamin C. Granted, there really isn’t that much Vit C in the little amount of lemon juice you have in your water – but, it’s better than nothing.
- Aids In Digestion & Constipation
Drinking warm or hot lemon water when you wake up may help get your digestive system moving and can also act as a mild laxative to help prevent constipation.
- Kidney Stones
The citric acid in lemons may help prevent kidney stones.
And lastly and potentially most importantly, is that lemon juice and thus, lemon water can help alkaline your body or digestive system a little bit.
And remember how earlier I said there’s one other thing I add in?…
Well, that’s about ½ TEAspoon of L-glutamine.
This combination of water, lemon juice and L-glutamine for sure helps boost my immune system, improves my gut health, and also lowers my appetite as an extra bonus.
