Every since I did Shred, I have been drinking lemon water each and every morning. I stopped for about a week, and my digestion was just not the same, so I started back and have been happy ever since. I have tried organic and non-organic lemons and the difference is taste, not results. The organic lemon water has less of a bitter taste and much more of a refreshing taste. The ratio I use is 8 oz water to the juice of 1/2 a lemon. There is absolutely no point in doing this with anything except fresh lemon juice, otherwise you are not getting the benefits. I drink the water first thing, before I am even aware of life :-).
The benefits of drinking lemon water:
1.Lemon water will help you cleanse your body of toxins, which is going to show on your skin. Lemons are full of skin-rejuvinating and anti-aging products.
2. Lemon water will improve your digestion. The lemon juice will activate the production of bile in your digestive system and when combined with water it will flush out the unwelcome stuff from your body to help with bloating and heartburn.
3. Lemon water eliminates headaches.
4. Lemon water fights infections. The high amount of Vitamin C in lemons fights illness.
5. Lemon water helps with weight loss. Lemons are full of pectin fiber, which will regulate your hunger levels.
