We're breaking it down.  Here are 10 reasons that you should consider kicking off your day with a citrus burst of lemon water. 

 

1.  NATURAL ENERGY BOOST

If you're not a morning person or really crave that morning cup of coffee, you'll love the natural energy that you gain from drinking lemon water first thing.  Lemon water is one of the most well tested energy boosters around and many people use lemon water to shift out of drinking as much coffee!

 

2.  STRENGTHEN YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM

Lemons are packed with Vitamin C, which is an incredible supporter to a strong immune system.

 

3.  HELP FIGHT INFECTIONS

Lemons are powerfully antibacterial and can help to fight off infections in your body.

 

4.  SO GOOD FOR YOUR DIGESTION

Drinking water first thing in the morning is an easy way to kickstart and flush your digestion, plus maintain longterm digestive health .  

 

Our livers are very active when we sleep and rehydrating it in the morning is very important for its short and longterm health.  Drinking lemon water prompts the liver to flush out toxins.

 

Lemon water increases metabolic weight and can aid in weight loss.

SQUEEZE THE DAY.

 

5.  HAPPY HYDRATION HABITS

By starting your day rehydrating your system after resting it for hours, you're adding electrolytes first thing and starting your day off in the right direction for continued hydration!  If you drink water first thing in the morning, your chances of continuing your great habit throughout the day (and even replacing lesser healthy drinks with water) gets so much stronger.

 

6.  NOT JUST RICH IN VITAMIN C

Lemons aren't just rich in Vitamin C!  They are also super rich in potassium, calcium, magnesium and phosphorus.

 

7.  GET THAT GLOW

Both lemons AND water/proper hydration benefit your skin.  Many people have seen significant changes in frustrating skin problems such as acne and wrinkles by adding a lemon water habit to their morning.

 

8.  MAKES YOUR BODY FEEL BETTER

Drinking lemon water is thought to ease muscle and joint pain.  Think about what that can do for your yoga practice!

 

9.  IT'S ANTI-INFLAMMATORY

Lemons have anti-inflammatory properties which can help fight different swelling including infections, colds and allergies in your body.

 

 

 

 

When life hands you lemons, squeeze them into your morning water.  Hope that you love these benefits (and more!) of daily lemon water.

 

You're simply the zest, Namaste.
