Morning Energy Boost with Lemon Water

Even the smallest changes in your routine can have a big impact on your health.


After a night’s sleep, the body’s tissues are dehydrated but many people like to jump-start their day with a mug of tea or coffee. Unfortunately, they are diuretics, they deplete the body of water and essential minerals and electrolytes which are needed for the day ahead.


A better start to your day is a pint of hot water and juice of ½ organic lemon on an empty stomach


There are many benefits of lemon water:


  • The sourness of hot lemon water helps to jumpstart your digestion and improve the natural detoxifying process of your body. The citric acid in lemon juice assists the digestive system. It supports healthy liver function by stimulating bile production. Bile is needed for the breakdown of fats during the digestive process.
  • Lemon water encourages your kidneys to keep flushing toxins out through urine further helping your body to detox.
  • Like all produce, lemons contain phytonutrients, which have powerfully antioxidant properties. They protect your cells against free radicals which may place a role in cancer and other diseases. Free radicals are molecules produced when your body breaks down food or when you’re exposed to toxins.
  • Many people like taking Lemon water when trying to shed some pounds. The pectin fiber that is present in lemons is known to keep your cholesterol levels under control and also curbs your hunger, preventing you from overeating or snacking.
  • Lemons contain a good source of vitamin C which strengthen the immune system.
  • Lemons can boost the absorption of iron from other foods due to their vitamin C content.



  • Use a straw when drinking lemon water often, as this will reduce the exposure of acid to your teeth.
  • Keep your lemon peel as they can be added later to your vegetable juice or smoothie

It’s all about supporting the body, whether it’s boosting the immune system and your energy or helping to detox the body.
