It’s a great way to start your day: drinking a glass of warm water with the fresh-pressed juice of half a lemon. It’s a practice that’s thought to have all sorts of health benefits.
Starting your day with warm lemon water is thought to have a ton of health benefits - and it's long been an Ayurvedic tradition. The warm water helps stimulate the digestive tract, and the lemons are believed to purify the liver. The vitamin C in lemons also helps give your immune system a boost. The tradition is also believed to help remedy a chronic pH imbalance. And because lemon water is a natural diuretic, it’s thought to flush excess fluids and toxins out of your body. Last but not least, it helps keep your skin clear and hydrated. Just take the juice of half a fresh-squeezed lemon, and add it to warm water. After drinking the lemon water, be sure to rinse your mouth with plain water to help protect your teeth from the acidity.
