Benefits to Drinking Lemon Juice in Water
It is loaded with vitamin C at 187% DV per cup! Since our body does not make vitamin C on it’s own, we have to get it through the foods and drinks that we consume. Vitamin C can help with our white blood cell production that is beneficial for our immune system.
Helps your body detox and supports healthy digestion.
Lemon juice is similar to your digestive juices in your stomach and can help aid in digestion.It can also help your body break down toxins and can ease an upset stomach.
Since Lemons are filled with antioxidants, they can help fight damage from free radicals and keep our skin looking healthy and fresh.
If you don’t have fresh lemons on hand, you can still get many benefits from Lemon Essential Oil in your water. Just 1-2 drops to 8oz of water. This helps alkaline your body, raises PH levels, helps detox and promotes a healthy body, mind and spirit. Make SURE that you only put essential oils in a GLASS or STAINLESS STEEL container. Citrus breaks down petrochemicals and toxins and will also break down plastic. You do not want to be drinking liquid plastic :)
It takes over 40 lemons to make a 15ml bottle of essential oil. Lemon oil comes from the rind of the fruit and does not contain any juice. A couple drops of lemon oil is a wonderful addition to your daily water consumption.
I invite you to wake up every day to a mug of warm water filled with the juice from one lemon and a dash of cayenne pepper (to get your organs kick started). Chug it down to kick off your day with an extra boost of Vitamins, Antioxidants and Immune System Support. Your body will thank you… and your organs too.
