It’s not just a simple, soothing drink. Regularly sipping on warm water and lemon every morning boasts many health benefits that are just too good and plentiful to overlook.
Warm Lemon Water Benefits:
- Immune System Booster.
Lemons, being chock-full of Vitamin C and potassium, are great for beating colds and activating brain and nerve functions that assist in controlling blood pressure.
- pH Neutralizer.
The body prefers to maintain a more alkaline (basic) environment. Contrary to what you might think, lemons create an alkaline environment once metabolized and inside of the body. Yes, they taste acidic, but once inside, they undergo a metabolic process rendering a more alkaline body – an essential component of good health.
- Appetite Suppressant.
Are you trying to lose weight to support your goals at the Pivotal Fitness Greenville health club? Lemons, being high in pectin fiber, help to ward off cravings. Also, studies suggest that people who keep a more alkaline diet lose weight faster.
- Digestive Aid/Cleanser.
Lemon juice is a diuretic, meaning it increases the rate of urination in the body, thus flushing out unwanted materials and trapped toxins at a quicker rate. This keeps your urinary tract in good shape.
- Skin Booster.
Vitamin C helps reduce wrinkles and blemishes. Plus, lemon water releases toxins from the blood which helps keep your skin healthy and glowing.
Lemon water (being mostly water) keeps dehydration and adrenal fatigue in check. When your body is dehydrated, or incredibly dehydrated (adrenal fatigue) things can get messy, including toxic buildup, stress, constipation, trouble sleeping, low energy, depression – you name it. Keep your adrenals happy and hydrated to better regulate your stress response. Stay energized and balanced so you can keep on keepin’ on at the Pivotal Fitness Greenville sports club.
- Natural Breath Freshener.
Alongside lemony fresh breath, lemons have been known to help ease the symptoms of tooth pain and gingivitis!
The abundance of vitamin C in lemons promotes wound healing. Vitamin C helps keep bones, connective tissue, and cartilage healthy. What’s more, vitamin C has anti-inflammatory properties. Thus, vitamin C is an essential component of good health and recovery from any stress and/or injury incurred in your Pivotal Fitness Greenville gym workouts.
