Recently, my Nutritional Therapist told me about the benefits of hot lemon water.
According to MindBodyGreen.com drinking lemon water in the morning has many benefits including:
- Boosts your immune system
- Balances PH
- Helps with weight loss
- Aids digestion
- Acts as a gentle natural diuretic
- Clears skin
- Hydrates the lymph system
Lemons are an excellent source of vitamin C and a good source of B complex vitamins.
Lemons have powerful antibacterial properties and are alkalizing for the body.
Why Hot Instead of Cold?
Drinking it warm helps extract vitamin C and Polyphenols from both the lemon and its peel.

My daily morning ritual now includes drinking hot lemon water on an empty stomach upon wakening.
I drink warm lemon water before and during my daily workout and it sustains me!
Do you include hot lemon water as a part of YOUR morning routine? Please leave a comment.
