2. Alkalize the body
Having an over acid body can lead to low level chronic inflammation in the tissues throughout your body and organs. This can slow down the process and function and also possibly lead to disease.
Although you’d probably think of lemons as being acidic, they actually have the opposite effect and are incredibly alkalizing. When your body has a more stable pH balance it help reduce inflammation and will generally function better, keeping your immune system in good shape and helping to ward off disease.
3. Cleanse & detoxify the liver
The liver is an amazing organ and is responsible for processing all the nutrients we eat and then shipping them out to the various parts of our body. It also helps to process the toxins we constantly bombard our bodies with. This lemon drink helps to cleanse toxins out of the liver and also stimulates function to help more effective and efficient processing of nutrients, including increasing fat metabolism.
4. Aid digestion & cleansing of the colon
This little magic drink greatly helps with the stimulation of digestive enzymes throughout your gut and helps promote healthy gut bacteria. There are thousands of these enzymes and bacteria working hard to digest your food effectively so giving them a helping hand is a very beneficial thing. It also helps to assist with better elimination by stimulating the bowel. So if you suffer from constipation it can be a great help too.
5. Boost weight loss
All of the above benefits will help your body function better and improve your digestion and metabolism and thus increase your weight loss results.
I’ve also found that one additional benefit is that it helps to decrease sugar cravings and regulate appetite, my clients have also found this to be true. The other great benefit is that when you kick start the day on a good foot like this, it often means the rest of the day is going to be great too!
Of course it also helps to accompany this morning ritual by following with a day filled with healthy nutritious food. Any attempt to have only the lemon and apple cider drink and still eating crap is certainly not going to help too much. The point is that this wonderful drink helps set the perfect scene on the inside of your body so that everything else you do will have additional benefits and make your results all the more rewarding.
Morning Drink Recipe
Place the juice of half a lemon and 1-2 teaspoons of apple cider vinegar in a mug. Fill the mug with warm filtered water. Have it first thing in the morning on an empty stomach.
If you currently drink tea or coffee first thing in the morning, you’ll just be having a lemon, apple cider tea instead! Previous Page
