Did you know that we come in contact with more than 500 toxins each day? With all of the environmental pollutants, preservatives in foods, and chemicals we come in contact with on a daily basis, such as detergents, shampoo, pesticides, new carpet, perfumes, hair spray (the list goes on), it’s important to rid our bodies of as much of these toxins as possible.
One natural way to help reduce these harmful toxins is with a simple refreshing homemade drink…..water and lemon juice. It may sound too good and simple to be true, but lemon juice helps to aid elimination in the digestive system and flush toxins from the liver. It also aids in alkalizing the blood and body, so try to drink at least one glass of lemon water daily. Some people have also reported that with daily consumption of this lemon water concoction, they are able to lose weight easier.
There are many health benefits of adding lemon to your diet, so do something healthy for yourself, and when life hands you lemons…..make lemon water! Just squeeze the pulp from ½ lemon into a glass of water, or if using bottled lemon juice mix 1-2 tsp. of lemon juice (to taste) with 10 – 12 ounces of water. It’s that simple.
