What can Lemon Juice and Warm Water do for you?
Well for starters drinking it in the morning will help your body get going. By get going, I mean it alerts and awakens your lymph system, digestive system and the smell of lemon makes one feel refreshed.
Lemons naturally assist in hydration and staying hydrated helps you to avoid, adrenal fatigue (which I am working with right now). When your body is seriously lagging and is in a state of chronic dehydration, your adrenals cannot do their best to control your cortisol levels, which manages how you manage stress. These two little glands are vital to keeping your body and mind in a top functioning state.
Lemons contain Vitamin C, an antioxidant, which helps to boost your immune system and keep your skin clear as it assists in ridding your body of toxins.
Lemons are an Alkaline Food which means they are not acidic. One would think they are acidic because they are a citrus fruit, however they are an Alkaline which is needed to keep the body healthy and balanced. Too much acidity knocks your body into a state of panic and it has to work overtime to fight off infections and illness of all kinds.
The Vibrant and Tangy Lemon is not to be overlooked! Enjoy!
