Drink Warm lemon water first thing every morning....

 

1. It helps you detox every day: While lemons may seem quite acidic, they're a surprisingly good source of analkaline food that can help balance your body's pH; the combination wakes up your liver and flushes out nasty toxins.

2. It wakes up your digestive tract: This simple yet powerful beverage stimulates your gastrointestinal tract—improving your body's ability to absorb nutrients all day and helping food pass through your system with ease.

3. It supports weight loss: Lemon juice contains pectin, a soluble fiber that has been shown to aid in weight-loss struggles. And if you've been sipping on a cup of tea loaded with sugar or honey every morning, this beverage will slash calories from your daily diet.

4. It soothes an upset tummy: When you go to bed on a full stomach, pesky heartburn or a bloated belly can get in the way of your morning. Hot water cleanses your system, while the flavonoids from lemon juice may help reduce acidity in your stomach, so you feel like yourself sooner.
