What are the Health Benefits of Hot Lemon Water?
This little fruit comes with a surprising number of health benefits. And is definitely one we’d recommend keeping in your kitchen. Not only does it kick start your metabolism. But it alkalises the body and aids digestion. Let’s take a look at some of the more useful benefits:
For your body to thrive and fight off infection it is imperative that your pH level is not too acidic. Enter the lemon – despite being an acidic fruit, once digested it has an alkalising effect on the body.
Lemon stimulates the liver, helping flush out any toxins in the body. Drink a glass of hot lemon water every morning before breakfast for optimum results.
Lemons aid digestion by encouraging the production of bile. They also suppress your appetite, in turn promoting weight loss.
Boosts immune system
What are some of the other health benefits of hot lemon water? Lemons are an excellent source of Vitamin C, a nutrient that helps boost the immune system and fight off the common cold.
Research shows that the scent of lemon alone is enough to enhance your mood and reduce anxiety. Try investing in some essential lemon oil or purchase a lemon scented air freshener.
My personal favourite. Try drinking hot lemon water every morning for 14 days and keep a note of how you feel (and look) at the start and end of this period. For an added immune boost add a teaspoon of raw organic coconut oil and a splash of organic apple cider vinegar.
