Water is essential to our existence. People drink it, bathe in it, swim in it, and even float on it. It what makes up 70% of our bodies. Without it people are not designed to be able to survive. Facts are facts. There are some people out there who say the taste of it is boring, so they don't drink it. Obviously, plain water doesn't taste good enough. So if that's true, why not switch it up with some lemon?
That's right! Add some lemon to your water and reap the benefits. The best time of day is to drink lemon water right in the morning. Drinking it in the morning helps keep your body happier and healthier throughout the day. Here are some of the benefits!
Lemons are apart of the citrus family. With that said, this means that lemons contain Vitamin C. Vitamin C is an ascorbic acid, which means that it acts like an antioxidant and helps keep tissue connected and healthy. Lemons also contain a small amount of potassium as well. Potassium is an electrolyte that helps with regulating normal body functions by sending minuscule electric pulses throughout the body. With that being said, when lemon water is digested in the morning it gives the body a chance to absorb these vitamins. The body's adrenals get a boost when those vitamins are absorbed.
When someone drinks lemon water in the morning, it wakes up the liver and helps flush out any toxins. Whenever this happens then the liver is able to work at the top functionality and digest the food in the stomach to release any toxins left overnight. Vitamin C is already a necessary ingredient in collagen production, so lemon water helps gives skin a beautiful and dewy look.
Depending on the individual, the human body is generally asleep for a time period of 5-10 hours. The body is losing any water intake and inches closer to becoming dehydrated.
