Toxins, toxins, everywhere!
Toxins that can be harmful to the body are everywhere nowadays, from what you drink, breathe and eat. This includes chemical additives and preservatives put in food, to pesticides, antibiotics and hormones.
These can wreak havoc with your metabolism, digestion and your own hormone levels. Not to mention turn you into a low energy zombie that needs five cups of coffee to make it through the day.
But there is one simple trick that will help relieve your of some of these horrible toxins, as well as boost your metabolism and increase your energy levels.
Oh, and it’s not expensive, nor does it take a lot of time.
Tell me! Tell me!
Okay, okay, it’s simply lemon water.
As in, a lemon in water (room temperature, not cold), not lemon juice or concentrate).
You can use a juicer if you have one and use the whole lemon or you can simply cut a lemon into four pieces and squeeze the juice into a glass of water.
Do this when you first get up and don’t heat for about ten or fifteen minutes afterwards.
Lemons are cleansing. Lemon water will work wonders on detoxing your liver and kidneys. Over time, you’ll notice an increased level of energy throughout the day.
Lemons have been proven to help with digestion, including such things as bloating and heart burn.
They also have a high vitamin C content as well as very important minerals like calcium, poteassium and magnesium.
All of these benefits combined have a positive effect on your hormone levels, putting your body in a more advantageous state for burning more body fat!
As you can see, there are many reasons for starting every morning off with a glass of lemon water, from improving your health to preventing sickness, and even burning more fat, too.
