Water, a super drink. During the night your body will lose a lot of fluid, even if it has not been a warm night. It is therefore good to immediately refill that moisture loss in the morning. Dehydration causes, among other things, fatigue, headache, irritability and dizziness. How you start your day is extremely important. If you have breakfast with sandwiches with chocolate spread in the morning, drink two cups of coffee and fly to work in a hurry, the tone is set for the rest of the day. The chance that you will spend the day relaxing and making healthy choices is rather small. Start the day healthy and you will notice that it is much easier to continue your healthy lifestyle during the day.
Start the day with a glass of lukewarm lemon water. Can food influence your sleep. You boil a small amount of water, mix it with cold water and add the freshly squeezed juice of a (semi) lemon. Or use mineral water at room temperature and add the lemon juice. You drink this immediately when you get out of bed, before you go into the shower or do something else. To protect your tooth enamel, drink the lemon water with a straw. I do it every day and really notice the benefits. Make it a healthy morning reflex! Cold water drinking.
1. It helps you lose weight
It gives you full feeling and helps you digestion, so you get hunger attacks less quickly. Drinking water helps with losing some weight.
2. Energy until the afternoon
A glass of lukewarm lemon water gives you long-lasting energy. You may be used to your morning coffee that gives you a boost right away. But once the caffeine has been worked out, you end up in a dip and need a next head to get your energy back on track. Dehydration causes fatigue and a dull feeling in your head. By starting the day with a large glass of lemon water you bring your moisture content up to standard.
3. Good pH balance in your body
Too much processed food, animal products and grains will make your body sour. The pH value of your body is then out of balance. This causes inflammatory processes and a "soured" body is much more susceptible to all kinds of diseases. Lemon water is, despite the sour taste, not acid-forming but just base-forming.
4. Vitamin C bomb
Lemons are packed with vitamin C and this vitamin plays a big role for your resistance. With a good resistance you are much better able to withstand external influences and you do not get sick easily. Vitamin C also promotes the absorption of iron by our body, another plus point.
Lemon stimulates the liver and thus ensures the removal of waste. Drinking lemon water therefore works purifyingly. After drinking your glass of lemon water, wait half an hour before eating or drinking anything else. Watch out for your tooth enamel with the acid from the lemon. You can drink the lemon water with a straw and you should wait at least an hour before brushing your teeth. If you want to pick up one healthy habit, I can really recommend it. It costs almost no time or money. Try to keep it going for a week and before you know it it becomes a new habit. Do you drink lemon water every morning? What benefits do you notice?
