Today is ‘National Lemon Cupcake Day,’ but let’s skip the cake and concentrate on how warm lemon water can exponentially improve your health. Drinking a cup of warm water with the juice of one half fresh lemon in the morning will not only kick start your entire digestive system but the Vitamin C will bring a big boost to your immune system as well. For me though, the single biggest benefit to indulging in this morning mix is the balance it brings to the overall acidity and pH of the body. A balanced and alkaline body fights inflammation and disease while fighting weight-causing cravings too. Lemons also increase the rate of urination, so they’re also considered an all-natural detoxifier. Although you might think it would be sour, this tip is really sweet!
