Good Morning! I want to share one of my favorite morning rituals. It’s something I do everyday and have seen and felt GREAT results.
Warm water with lemon is a morning ritual in Ayurvedic medicine and Yogic traditions. It has been used for many years to stimulate digestion, clear the body of any toxins and helps to create balance and harmony through out the body.
I LOVE it because it’s a quick and effective way to feel a energy boost and get a full body cleanse!
It also helps to:
Alkalize the body: Lemons contain both citric and ascorbic acid, which helps to help alkalize the blood and aids in keeping the PH balance in your body.
Aids in digestion: Believed to stimulate and purify the liver, lemon juice is traditionally understood to support digestive hydrochloric acid.
Brightens and keeps skin clear: Vitamin C and other antioxidants in lemons combat free radical damage. Free radical damage — especially as caused by UV exposure and environmental toxins — is responsible for many symptoms of aging. Antioxidant intake can help offset this damage, minimizing wrinkles.
Traditionally used as a liver stimulant, lemon water is also believed to help purge toxins from the blood, helping to keep skin clear of blemishes.
BONUS: Lemon juice can be applied topically to scars and age spots to help reduce their appearance.
Now you do it! Use one half of an organic lemon and splash of warm filtered water and ENJOY!
love + light,
