Lemon Water-A yummy morning cleanser!

Number 1
It balances pH--Lemon is an acidic food, but once metabolized, it becomes alkaline. Why bother? To put it most simply, alkalines help keep the oxygen in your blood at a safe pH level, and this helps your body heal itself (less yucky medicine), assimilate nutrients and fight off unwanted sickness.

Number 2
It keeps skin clear and glowing! Its helps to hydrate and moisturize your skin from the inside out. It also contains A TON of Vitamin C, which helps with wrinkles and blemishes. ((Yay for that!!))

Number 3
It kick starts the digestive system--a big glass of lemon water is a great way to start the morning! It increases urination which helps purify it. It also helps with heartburn and constipation. lol It has a strong cleansing effect and helps eliminate those bad toxins!

Number 4
It helps with weight loss--Did you know that keeping your body in an alkaline state can help people lose weight faster? It really give your metabolism a nice kick start to the day!!! They also help keep one full, longer....much like drinking a glass of water, put they pack a bit more punch. They also have a diuretic effect, which helps with water weight gain.

Number 5
It helps kick the soda habit--I have found that adding lemon to sparkling water and adding a whole lot of ice satisfies any sugary drink craving I might have. I gave up cokes over 2 years ago and I really don't miss it AT ALL. I don't think I could stand the sweetness of it now.

Try to drink it through a straw to keep the lemon off your teeth so the acid doesn't wear on your tooth enamel.
