Morgenstund not only has gold in the mouth, but also decides significantly how we spend the rest of the day. Therefore you should definitely integrate a morning ritual into your life: Drink the juice of half a lemon with a glass of water! We have 5 really amazing and powerful arguments for it: It strengthens the immune system: Lemons have a high content of vitamin C and potassium. Especially for colds, vitamin C is a great helper. Potassium stimulates our brain and nerve function and helps to regulate our blood pressure. Note: You can use hot or cold water. Depending on how you feel after getting up. In winter, the warm lemon water can warm you, in the summer you can enjoy iced water. pH Balance: Lemons are incredibly basic fruits, believe it or not. It's funny, because lemons themselves taste sour, but once they arrive in the body they are just basic. According to nutritionists, our food should consist of about 70% basic foods. That's the key to health. Lemons are fat burners: Lemon juice can avoid cravings due to its high percentage of pectin as a natural appetite suppressant. In addition, the high basic content of the fruit makes it easier to lose weight because the liver is supported in fat and sugar processing. Lemon detoxifies the body: The liver is the most important detoxification organ of our body. It makes important proteins every day that make fats digestible in our food. Lemon helps the liver with its tasks and helps to flush unwanted toxins and waste products out of the body. Beautiful, pure skin: The vitamin C in the lemon helps to reduce wrinkles and blemishes. If you drink a glass of lemon water every morning, your blood will be cleansed of toxins – which in turn will help to keep the skin clean.
