The way you start the day is exceptionally important for the way you live your life.
Drinking warm water with lemon in the mornings is a popular trend. However, it doesn’t “squeeze” all the potential that a lemon has to offer.
When you drink warm water with lemon inside, you don’t use all the Super nutrients the pulp and the peel have. If you boil the whole lemon without squeezing only the juice, you’ll get all the nutrients the lemon has to offer inside that warm liquid mixture.
Actually, this elixir will improve the health benefits of drinking warm lemon water.
We present you how to make this wonderful drink:
You will need:
• Pure natural honey
• 6 organic lemons
• 20 oz of water
Slice up 6 Lemons in half and add them to a 20 oz. of water in a pot;
Bring the water to a boil and let it boil for 3 minutes;
Leave the pot to cool down for 10 – 15 minutes;
Remove the lemons and the pulp from the water;
Sip the hot lemon water in a tea cup;
Add the rest of the warm lemon water in a glass bottle for later use;
Note: You can add honey to the tea cup for better taste!
Health benefits of lemon water:
Despite the fact that lemons are a highly acidic fruit, once they are ingested, they have a very alkalizing effect on your bloods pH levels. Studies have repeatedly shown that having a blood pH that is slightly alkaline can prevent many diseases from taking hold, including cancer. This lemon drink also reduces inflammation in the body, a major cause of the lifestyle diseases that plague us.
Boiled lemon water also aids in hydrating your body not only with the water that it contains, but also because lemons contain all the electrolytes required for your body to function optimally. Electrolytes are lost quickly when you sweat because of athletic activity, as well as during everyday bodily functions such as urination and water loss through breathing.
And as you will see with the following recipe, boiled lemon water has a synergistic effect when combined with ginger and garlic, making this elixir a powerful antioxidant and blood cleanser, with the additional effect of revving up your metabolism while simultaneously curbing your appetite, making this drink a very effective weight loss aid.
