The morning routine of all celebrities holds a secret and we reveal it today. Continue reading if you want to find out!
Some people start their day with some lemon water instead of a coffee and I'll tell you why they are beneficial for you.
The benefits of lemon
Lemon helps detoxify the liver, boost immunity and energy. Infusing water with basil or tarragon leaves for its antispasmodic properties, or mint with relaxing properties enhances the effects of lemon. Also, include a few slices of cucumber for extra hydration. There are three main benefits lemons can offer:
It promotes hydration
Water is the best way to stay hydrated, but some people -like me- don’t like the taste of it on its own. Adding lemon makes water tastier, which may help you drink more.
It contains vitamin C
Lemon is high in vitamin C, a primary antioxidant that helps protect cells from damaging free radicals.
Lemon water works as a daily morning laxative to help prevent constipation.
How to include lemon water in your routine
As we have said, in terms of detox, warm lemon water is a natural purifier. But you should follow these steps for it to really work. Take note!
Everything in its right balance
Well-being is a sum of everything and it is of little use to indulge in health trends if the rest of our habits are not adequate. With that said, let's talk about the new take on the classic lemon water drinking trick. As long as we accompany healthy practices, exercise, nutrition, and good sleep, the equation is perfect.
Natural detox: water with lemon on an empty stomach
Drinking water on an empty stomach, with or without lemon, will not burn fat, but it will help purify our body and activate its drainage and metabolism. It is recommended to incorporate the water first thing in the morning when the drainage mechanisms are more active and thus enhance the elimination of liquids. If you have acid reflux, consult your doctor first.
So... it really works?
For this habit to really work, you must filter the water to eliminate possible toxins and incorporate the sliced lemon, without squeezing it, to take advantage of all its benefits, including those of the peel.
