I sometimes like to switch out my regular cup of coffee with a nice cup of hot lemon water. Not only does it taste good, but lemons are an excellent and rich source of vitamin C, an essential nutrient that protects the body against immune system deficiencies. In other words, this hot drink is very good for me.
Fun fact: Lemons actually contain more potassium than apples or grapes. By drinking one cup each day, you can reduce inflammation, aid digestion and cleanse your system. Lemons are packed with calcium, iron, magnesium, potassium, and fiber. It is a great energy booster when we wake up first thing in the morning as our tissues are dehydrated and in need of fluid to push out toxins.
Ready to jump on the lemon water bandwagon?
