One of the simplest, yet most impactful things we can do for our health is drinking lemon water on a daily basis. From improved digestion to glowing skin, this simple trick can transform your health.
When you wake up in the morning, you may feel well rested, but your body was working hard all night to restore and regenerate itself. You’ve probably gone at least 8 hours without any water on top of that.
This is why you want to start every day with a big glass of lemon water. It will help hydrate your body, stimulate the liver to flush out toxins and even help wake you up.
Forget that cup of coffee first thing in the morning. Instead, try reaching for a glass of lemon water and see what results you start to notice.
Reasons to Drink Lemon Water Every Day
Lemon water can ease indigestion or help an upset stomach. The acidity from the lemon triggers the liver to produce bile, which helps to keep foods moving smoothly through the digestive system and aids in nutrient absorption.
Keeping the body properly hydrated also helps to regulate bowel movements.
While we are sleeping, the liver is very active removing toxins from the body, so it makes sense to give it a little love first thing in the morning. Drinking enough water throughout the day (and especially first thing in the morning) helps allow the liver to do its job properly.
The lemon stimulates the liver, flushing out harmful toxins more easily.
By properly hydrating your body and removing toxins more efficiently, you will surely see improved skin. Often times, people will see clearer and even more glowing skin.
The vitamin C in lemon also helps to produce collagen, which gives your skin that smooth, youthful look.
Did you know proper hydration and healthy digestion are two of the keys to successful weight loss? This is why drinking lemon water on a daily basis is so important.
