Start everyday with an energy, metabolism and beauty boost. Drinking warm water with fresh lemon juice first thing in the morning jumpstarts the body’s natural mechanisms for digestion and detoxification, while adding a boost of Vitamin C and Potassium.
Hydrating the body with warm lemon water helps improve the function of all organs in the body, especially the liver. The liver is responsible for flushing out toxins as well as storing vitamins and minerals the body needs as building blocks. Studies are beginning to show that it is the flavonoids in lemons that may protect the liver against toxins while reducing fat which helps lower the risk of fatty liver disease.
When using lemon water as part of a weight-loss program, consider drinking three ice-cold glasses of water with lemon juice throughout the day before meals. Not only will drinking the water before meals create a more full and satiated feeling, drinking cold water requires your body to heat the cold water to your core body temperature which helps your body burn additional calories.
