The truth behind water & lemon

water with lemonThe recipe for the hottest duo in town is here, and no it’s not peanut butter and jam or apples and honey… Drum roll please….. 

It’s warm water with lemon! Drinking water is a no brainer. We know it’s good for us and blah blah blah. But is drinking warm water with lemon also a no brainer? It should be! And especially when you wake up in the morning. Get it? Got it? Good! 

Why?

Picture your body as a car, it needs to be serviced and maintained for optimal function.  After a long tiring day you go to bed to get some rest, but guess what, your body is working at full force. It uses this recovery time to filter blood, process unwanted toxins, and restore the body. This process dehydrates the body, so when you wake up the first thing you want to do is rehydrate your system. Drinking warm water with lemon hydrates the body, while aiding the liver in removing unwanted toxins.
