It is important to keep your body hydrated but it is also important to make sure you are giving your body it’s proper nutrients. Lemon water is a great way to help the body stay balanced. Drinking warm lemon water first thing in the morning is the best way for the body to soak up the nutrients from the lemons. I like to wake up and start warming the water, before it comes to a boil I turn off the burner and I squeeze have of the lemon into the water. You want to make sure the water is warm, but not boiling. When the water is boiling and you add the lemon it can destroy some of its therapeutic properties.
Drinking lemon water first thing in the morning has so many benefits. One of the great benefits is it helps to level out the PH levels in the body. When you body is not balanced it can affect your digestive system as well as unsettle your blood pressure levels. Lemon also acts as a very powerful antibacterial because it contains pectin fibers which is beneficial for your colon. It also contains high levels of vitamin C which is important to keep your immune system strong and protect the body against immune systems deficiencies. Lemon is also known for being a strong detox agent. Drinking warm lemon water in the morning is a great way to flush out toxins and purify the system.
Drinking lemon can be a great boost to your overall energy levels and keeping the immune system healthy, however there are other things you should be doing to ensure your body’s health is most optimal. Getting adjusted with your local San Diego Chiropractor is a great way to ensure the nervous system stays healthy so you can get all the benefits of drinking lemon water. Many San Deigo Chiropractors are even starting to provide free alkaline water for their patients to help balance out PH levels in the body. Remember it’s not one thing you do to be healthy, it is a combination of many different wellness avenues!
