Why lemon water is SO important

What's all the hype about?

Lemon

I'm sure you've heard someone say that lemon water first thing in the morning is good for you health. Well, they are right. It is!

I've got some good news and some bad news... 
 

Let's start with the BAD NEWS:

Did you know that dehydration increases the risk of chronic disease such as high blood pressure, diabetes, asthma, multiple sclerosis, high cholesterol, depression, lupus, kidney stones, back pain, arthritis, and migraines.

This is only the tip of the iceberg!

Water is involved in almost every bodily function from circulation, to digestion, and even absorption and elimination, to name a few.

Never underestimate the power of good 'ol fashioned H20! 

Water is the foundation of all life on this beautiful, blue planet. We humans are made up of at least 60% water and rely on it to stay alive and well. 

 

{Can I get a "BOO-YAH!" for water?}

Now here's the GOOD NEWS:

Did you know that warm lemon water first thing in the morning is a fantastic way to gently cleanse your liver? It even stimulates a gentle colon cleanse, similar to the effects of coffee (if y'know what I mean). 

More over, lemon stimulates the production of HCl (stomach acid) and gets your digestive fire burning strong! It's even packed with Vitamin C to boost your immune system. 

As if that weren't already a bunch of cool benefits, lemon is alkalizing in the body. Yep, you read that correctly! It appears that when metabolized, lemon becomes alkaline in the body which is the perfect way to start your day and ward of dis-ease.

 

Voila!

So I hope you won't just take my word for this. Give it a try for yourself, see what benefits may come for you with this one simple change.
