Reasons to Drink Lemon Water Before Breakfast

In Ayurveda by Marvin Francis

Tool 1 – Enhances Mood

Lemon energizes you and it enhances your mood. The energy a human receives from food comes from the atoms and molecules in your food. A reaction occurs when the positive charged ions from food enter the digestive tract and interact with the negative charged enzymes.

Lemon is one of the few foods that contain more negative charged ions, providing your body with more energy when it enters the digestive tract. The scent of lemon also has mood enhancing and energizing properties. The smell of lemon juice can brighten your mood and help clear your mind. Lemon can also help reduce anxiety and depression.

What lemon does is it gives us alkalized taste buds. And when we have alkalized taste buds, we stop craving for destructive things to our health like cookies, sweets, cakes, and other kinds of food.

Tool 2 – Freshens Breath

It freshens your breath. Besides fresher breath, lemons have  been known to help relieve tooth pain and gingivitis. Be aware that citric acid can erode tooth enamel, so you should be mindful of this. Do not brush your teeth just after drinking your lemon water. It is best to brush your teeth first, then drink your lemon water, or wait a significant amount of time after to brush your teeth. Additionally, you can rinse your mouth with purified water after you finish your lemon water.

Tool 3 – Makes you skinny

Yes, it aids in weight loss, as some of you might wonder. Lemons are high in pectin fiber, which helps fight hunger cravings. Studies have shown that people who maintain a more alkaline diet, do in fact lose weight faster.

I personally find myself making better choices throughout the day if I start my day off right by making a health conscious choice to drink warm lemon water first thing every morning.

Now, that we’ve shown you the 3 benefits, I might as well show you how to put your own lemon in your water. But before you can do this, you have to buy lemon from grocery stores. I would always suggest that you buy in bulk so that you can get discounts from the wholesale. And then, here it is!

Step 1) Make a bucket of lemon juice

Step 2) Pour the juice in an ice cube tray .

And now you have prepared lemon cubes every morning!
