Ah quarantine. A time filled with excessive wine drinking and one too many late night ice creams. But here’s the good news… quarantine is finally coming to an end, meaning this is our chance to get a fresh start on 2021! And the even better news? Well, we’re about to reveal the secret habit you can add to your daily routine that will help you detox your body and give your body a fresh start every morning.
That’s right, today we’re talking about lemon water!
Ready to feel amazed? Here are what we consider to be the three most important benefits to drinking hot lemon water in the morning on an empty stomach:
Immune System Boost: Being a citrus fruit full of antioxidants, lemons are a huge source of vitamin C. This particular vitamin is beneficial for our immune system because it helps us fight common colds (flu, sore throat, etc), cardiovascular diseases, and even blood pressure. There are even studies indicating vitamin C can help your body fight a certain respiratory illness that forced the entire world to quarantine for the past 12 months.
Weight Loss: One of the most popular benefits to drinking hot lemon water is that it helps you lose weight. This happens because 1) lemon helps improve your metabolism and digestive system, 2) the hot lemon water makes you feel full for some time, and 3) it increases your bowel movement by working as a natural laxative.
Clearer Skin: Drinking hot lemon water in the morning clears your face by reducing wrinkles, fine lines, acne, and dark spots. Not to mention a noticeable extra glow! All because of the high propensity of Vitamin C and citric acid that this marvelous juice has.
Those were just three of the many health benefits of drinking hot lemon water. You can even prepare your drink differently every morning, for example, I enjoy spicing it with ginger, cayenne pepper, honey and even tea bags!
