Hello everyone!

  • having warm lemon water first thing in the morning is very beneficial. Starting your day off with this simple drink helps us in many ways.

    1. Great for digestion due to the citric acid it contains.
    2. Increases liver function and releases toxins to give you a mini cleanse.
    3. Strengthens your immune system due to the vitamin C and potassium content. It is also easier for the body to absorb these nutrients on an empty stomach.
    4. Hydrates the body, even without the lemon. A glass of warm water first thing in the morning is so important especially after fasting for 8-10 hours throughout the night.
    5. Improves skin due to the vitamin C content which helps fight off free radicals and produce collagen.
    6. Boosts energy
  • But most of us forget about the lemon peel. It contains almost double the amount of calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, vitamin A and C than that of the juice alone. These added nutrients make this simple morning elixir a powerhouse to your overall health!

  • My suggestion is to have a few organic lemons, washed and scrubbed properly and stored in the freezer. In a tall glass pour warm, never boiling, filtered water and add half an organic lemon juice. Then take an organic lemon from your freezer and grate 1/4 of the lemon into the concoction. And voila! Your simple morning elixir to a healthier you.
