It is very important how you start the day. According to Ayurveda’s Indian philosophy, the choice of your daily routines makes your organism either resistant or totally ill. According to Ayurveda, everyone should start the day by focusing on morning rituals that will stimulate the body’s harmonization with the natural rhythm, the balance of the three elemental energies (air and space, fire and water and water and soil), as well as the strengthening of self-esteem and self-discipline.
When you get up in the morning, perhaps the mind immediately tells you to check your email, walk your dog or hurry up to work, but no matter how much time is limited to your daily morning ritual, it would be good if you find time to add another small part in it. It will surely affect your health.
Start the day with a hot cup (not boiling) water and add half a juiced lemon in it. And drink lemon water every morning.
Here are the benefits if you drink lemon water every morning
Improves the immune system
Lemons are filled with vitamin C and potassium. Vitamin C is great in fighting colds, while potassium stimulates the brain and nerves and helps control blood pressure.
Balances your pH
Lemons are highly alkaline foods. They contain acid themselves, but they act alkally in our body (lemon acid does not create acidity in the body as soon as it is processed in the body). The alkaline body is key to good health.
Helps to reduce weight
Lemons are packed with pectin fibers, which help reduce cramps caused by hunger. It has also been shown that people who practice a more alkaline diet are losing weight faster.
Helps in digestion
Warm water stimulates the gastro-intestinal tract and peristalsis – the waves caused by muscle contractions in the intestinal walls that allow the processes to progress. Lemons and green lemons also have a high amount of minerals and vitamins that help release toxins in the digestive tract.
It acts as a delicate natural diuretic
Lemon juice helps to remove unwanted substances by stimulating frequent urination. Toxins are thus more quickly and more often thrown out of the body and maintain the health of the urinary tract.
Cleans the skin
Vitamin C helps to reduce skin wrinkles and stains. Lemon water ejects toxins from the blood and thus keeps the skin clean.
It hydrates the lymphatic system
As soon as you start your day by hydrating, you normally prevent dehydration of the body and adrenal fatigue. When the body is dehydrated, it can not perform all its functions properly, leading to an increase in toxins, stress, hard stool, etc.
Adrenal glands are at the top of your kidneys and together with your thyroid create energy. They also secreted important hormones such as aldosterone. This hormone regulates the level of water in the body and the concentration of minerals such as sodium, which helps to stay hydrated. Adrenal glands also help regulate your stress management.
