Default Benefits of drinking lemon water

Here are just a few benefits for drinking warm lemon water first thing when you wake up, I just started doing this and I felt so good this morning..

Balances pH Levels: There is a theory that certain foods can leave an acid or alkaline ash in the body. This is true, but this only affects the pH of the urine and not the pH of the blood.

Flushes Toxins: Drinking water is important to help the body naturally eliminate cellular waste (a process that it does naturally), but claims that lemon water has a special ability to flush “toxins” without defining what they are or how this process works are overblown.

Prevents Cancer: Many of the same articles that claim that lemon water alkalizes the body claim that because of this, it promotes an alkaline environment where cancer cells cannot thrive.

I'm sure it's healthier than drinking coffee lol.

I do drink a lot of water and do enjoy lemon water sometimes too.

Every morning I drink a full glass of water with1/2 of a freshly squeezed lemon, 1/2 teaspoon of cayenne pepper, 1 tablespoon of chia seeds and a teaspoon of maple syrup. Mix it all up, let it sit for a minute (The chia seeds soften up...) and drink it - trust me, it tastes better than it looks! Do this approx 15 min before eating. Another important thing I've learned is that throughout the day, many times when you feel you need a snack, you are actually just thirsty. Have a big glass of water and your craving will go away...usually.

Thumbs up chia seeds

This was great to know as have some chia seeds here and wondered how to use them up. Also will have to use stevia instead of the maple syrup for making this drink more "low carb" friendly. Thanks for the great idea on using chia seeds and lemon juice!

I'd usually drink 1 glass of water with one squeezed lemon when I get colds. It helps boost your immune system with that natural vit c.
