We all know the importance of water in our lives. Drinking inadequate water leads to a decrease in your functional levels, headaches, acidity, dizziness, dehydration, tiredness and even constipation. But better than waking up to a warm glass of water, is a concoction of lemon and honey in warm water. Why should you follow this every morning for the rest of your life?
Cleanses the liver: Drinking a warm glass of honey and lime infused water the first thing in the morning, helps in cleansing the liver from the inside, and keeping illness and diseases at bay.
Cleanses the digestive system: The lemon and honey water keeps the digestive system clean. This concoction helps you keep away from constipation and works at detoxifying your body.
Boosts your energy levels and uplifts your mood: This magical water helps you keep energetic throughout the day. After a night sleep of about 7-8 hours, you need to hydrate your body back the first thing in the morning. This mix helps you boost up your energy levels and uplifts your mood as well. This mix clears the bacteria in the food track and works at giving you a fresh breath as well.
Honey works as a healing agent with its antibacterial and antiseptic properties.
Lemon is a rich source of Vitamin C which helps in keeping the skin clear and slower the process of aging by preventing pigmentation.
Weight loss: The lemon and honey water has worked wonders on cutting down belly fat when included with following a strict diet and exercise routine.
How do you make the lemon and honey water concoction:
I heat my tall glass of water in the microwave for 50 seconds. Add a teaspoon of honey and squeeze about half a lemon in the warm water.
This concoction is taken on an empty stomach before hitting your system with a mean coffee!
