Lemon balances the pH of our body: Though lemons are acidic in nature, they have a natural alkalizing effect on our bodies when we ingest them (Lemons are antiseptic). As a daily ritual, we reduce the overall acidity that occurs in our body, from the foods we eat, the air we breathe, and the stress we experience in our daily lives.
Lemon cleanses our system: Lemon cleanses and stimulates our liver and kidneys of impurities, and will help prevent disease. Lemon provides a natural strengthening agent for the liver, and helps repair oxygen and calcium levels in the liver, which raises blood oxygen levels (Oxygen is the number one source of energy, so this is a delicious and smart addition to our daily rituals).
Lemon is a diuretic: Lemons increase the rate of urination, which helps purify our body. By the increased rate of elimination, we safeguard the health of our urinary tract.
Lemon boosts our Immune system: Lemons are naturally high in Vitamin C, which is great for fighting colds. They are also high in potassium, which stimulates brain and liver function. Potassium also helps control blood pressure.
Lemon is a digestive aid: Lemon assists in both the digestive and elimination process, by aiding the body in removing waste matter more efficiently, thus preventing or reducing constipation, diarrhea and other gastrointestinal disorders. Lemons possess a naturally occurring digestive aid that encourages bile production, the necessary liver acid required for the digestive process, to helps relieve symptoms of indigestion, such as acid reflux, heartburn, belching and bloating.
Lemon water reduces inflammation: Lemon water is effective in dissolving uric acid and other poisons in our body, which strains our kidneys, and often the cause of the pain and inflammation we experience in our joints. High levels of uric acid in our body increase in an overly acidic body, and can too lead to gout, a form of arthritis.
Lemon clears and brightens our skin: Lemon purges toxins from our blood and alkalizes our body. This clears and brightens our skin, and because of the high Vitamin C, can even decrease wrinkles and blemishes.
Lemon relieves respiratory problems: Warm lemon water offers relief from common cold and flu symptoms, reduces phlegm in the body, and provides the much need immune stimulant Vitamin C. It is too considered helpful for those who suffer from allergies and asthma.
