Here’s Why You Need To Start Your Day With This Zesty Fruit

Sipping a glass of warm lemon water has been part of my daily morning ritual for sometime now and I absolutely can’t do without it. Its my form of an energy-booster and gets me off to a great start to the day!

Let’s a take a look at 7 great benefits of this simple-to-make drink that might have you switch your cup of morning coffee with warm lemon water right away!

1. Fight the Bulge!

Lemons are rich in pectin fibre which fights those evil hunger cravings and stops you from reaching out to that bar of chocolate. There is also plenty of research and evidence that show that drinking enough water increases one’s metabolism rate. But that said, drinking water is never enough for weight loss. Its a combination of a healthy and balanced diet as well as getting active.

2. Give Your Immune System a Little Boost!

Lemons contain Vitamin C which is ideal for fighting colds and flus. They also contain potassium that helps to control blood pressure. These zesty fruits are also rich in ascorbic acid that has anti-inflammatory effects and also aid’s the body’s ability to absorb iron and other vitamins for a healthy immune system.

3. Get Hydrated from the Get-go!

Most often we forget the importance of keeping ourselves hydrated especially after a good night’s sleep. Having that glass of warm lemon water first thing in the morning will get you off to a good start. Also, if you do not like the taste of plain old water and lean towards drinks with flavour, then lemon water would be just the perfect choice for you! It not only smells great but pleases the taste buds too. Once you develop a routine, you never have to remind yourself to keep hydrated.

4. Shoo away the Sluggish-Feeling and Boost Energy!

Lemons contain negatively charged ions which provides the body with more energy. Separately, the gorgeous smell of lemons can enhance and brighten up your mood and help clear your mind for a fresh day to the day!

5. Aids Digestive Health!

A glass of warm lemon water before any meal aids the liver in producing the essential bile needed to flush out harmful toxins that fill your digestive tract and ensuring smooth bowel functions, and aids in proper digestion.

6. Keep Those Wrinkles at Bay!

Lemons are rich in Vitamin C and serve as an great antioxidant to keep the skin free from wrinkles and blemishes, and encourages the growth of new blood cells, giving you a fresh glow and healthy skin. Definitely a better and more natural alternative to those expensive age-defying creams that we would often go for!

7. Bye Bad Breath!!

This simple morning drink can freshen your breath naturally. It helps kill the bacteria that builds up while you’re sleeping. Though do note that citric acid can erode tooth enamel (yikes!). Hence, best to gargle your mouth with plain water after you finish that glass of lemon water. Lemons are also great in helping to relieve toothaches and gingivitis.

So, this simple drink does not only boost your health and wellness regimen but is also very easy to make. To reap the benefits, simply squeeze the juice from a lemon into a glass of purified, lukewarm water. Drink it first thing in the morning on an empty stomach. That’s it! Definitely a better alternative to caffeinated drinks.

Try it and see the difference for yourself! Pronto.
