The Simplest, Healthiest Thing You Can Do For Your Body

This one health tip has a wide array of health benefits...and it's so simple it's almost dumb not to do it. 

Lemons have powerful antibacterial and antiviral properties and immunity boosting abilities. They contain a wide array of vitamins, including citric acid, calcium, magnesium, biolflavonoids, pectin, and limonene. Lemons are also rich in Vitamin C, a nutrient that has been linked to improved heart health. Vitamin C can lower blood cholesterol levels, reduce the risk of atherosclerosis, lower blood pressure, increase the production of (good) cholesterol, fight off free radicals, and lower blood lipoprotein levels.

Drinking a glass of warm water with lemon juice every day has incredible health benefits. To make your lemon water, simply squeeze the juice from 1/2 of a fresh, organic lemon into a cup of warm, filtered water. Make sure the temperature of the water is warm, not boiling, as that high of temperature will destroy some of the enzymatic properties of fresh lemon, while icy cold water will hinder its digestive benefits. Ensure your body absorbs the most energy and nutrients by drinking your lemon water first in the morning on an empty stomach, waiting 30 minutes before eating breakfast.
