Why Warm Lemon Drink in the Morning?
Drinking lemon water first thing in the morning is equivalent to getting up on the "right" side of the bed!
The lemon water starts to stimulate your digestive system which in turn will improve the body's ability to absorb nutrients. So in essence, you are flipping on the switch and warming up the engine before you feed it fuel.
Once the lemon water travels past your digestive system it helps to gently flush your kidneys and your liver of wastes and toxins. Your liver has been working all night on cleansing and this morning ritual will help it finish up it's job.
Lemon also provides a high amount of Vitamin C and adding a bit of the lemon zest will increase this Vitamin C intake. *** Only use the zest from an organic lemon peel.
So these are just a couple of the reasons why I start my day with this delicious, healthy, digestive, palate cleanser!
