LEMON WATER FOR YOUR HEALTH

Lemon water CL

Clean water and fresh squeezed lemon is one of the most well tested energy boosters around. It provides the body with anti-oxidants and electrolytes, and produces clean energy by hydrating and oxygenating the body to extraordinary energy and mental clarity. 

After sleeping through the night the bodily tissues are dehydrated and need clean, pure water to filter out toxins and improve energy production in the cells. 

CITRIC ACID CLEANSES THE SYSTEM

Lemon is a rich source of the immune boosting vitamin C. It also has good quantities of electrolytes such as potassium, calcium and magnesium. Lemon is a tremendous source of citrus bioflavonoid anti-oxidant phytonutrients that have been given the label Vitamin P.

Vitamin P improves cellular oxygenation and consists of the flavonoid glycosides hesperetin and naringenin among others. Studies have shown that vitamin P enhances the anti-oxidant capability of vitamin C. These bioflavonoids also improve capillary permeability and overall blood flow. This is especially important for oxygenating tissues and maintaining normal blood pressure. These anti-oxidants have also been shown to reduce swelling and edema. 

Fresh lemon helps oxygenate the body and maximizes enzyme function. Lemon is known to stimulate the liver’s natural enzymes. This assists the liver in the process of dumping toxins like uric acid and of liquefying congested bile ducts.

Be sure to eat out the membranous parts of the lemon where the majority of the pectin fiber and citrus bioflavonoids are located. Stevia can be added to form sugar-free lemonade. Apple cider vinegar and various herbs can be used to boost enzymatic and anti-oxidant potential. 

PRECAUTION

Lemon water is a fantastic way to start your day for all the reasons explained above.  The challenge with the lemon water is that it can erode the enamel on one’s teeth.  To avoid this you want to rinse your mouth out with clean water and get any of the extra citric acid out after drinking the lemon water.
