We are constantly apprised of the benefits of drinking an adequate amount of water but did you know that the simple addition of fresh lemon juice every morning will create a simple yet healing beverage.
Begin each day, before you have coffee or breakfast, with a glass of warm or hot lemon water.
After a night’s sleep, the lemon water provides an ideal flush to the body’s digestive and circulatory systems and elimination.
The lemon juice is a great cleanser and purifier of your blood, liver, and kidneys.
Lemon juice, although acidic in nature, is anionic and therefore produces an alkalizing effect on the body. This is important since the more alkaline your body is, the healthier it is. Disease states only occur when the body pH is acidic. Having enough alkaline also helps further the detoxification processes.
Lemon juice is also a great source of Vitamin C which supports the immune function. Calcium, Phosphorus, Iron and B−Vitamins are also found in lemon juice. It supports digestive function and can relieve conditions such as heartburn, indigestion, flatulence, diarrhea, and constipation.
By simply drinking a glass or warm or hot lemon water you can alter the state of your body and, in the end, prevent many future illnesses.
We're living in a stressful time. COVID-19 has disrupted life as we know it, and some of us may be dealing with added fear and anxiety around the unknown and uncertainty about the disease. Whether you are concerned for your own health or the health of others, the stress can be overwhelming at times. As May is mental health awareness month, and O2 Living has partnered with the JCK Foundation, we want to share how we are managing our stress during this pandemic.
