My Top Wellness Tip You Need to Start Doing Today

My Top Wellness Tip You Need to Start Doing Today

Lemon water toots an enormous amount of benefits, it’s silly to not incorporate a cup into your daily routine.

Benefits of Warm Lemon Water:

  • Aid in digestion and production of digestive juices
  • Supports liver function and its ability to flush out toxins
  • Helps regulate bowels (drink warm lemon water for just a few days and tell me how much better your bowel movements are!)
  • Supports the immune system due to the high level of Vitamin C

I only recommend fresh lemon juice. Purchasing bottled lemon juice from the store is usually pasteurized, which means you are losing a lot of the benefits found in lemon. Go fresh.

Personally, I tend to drink my warm lemon water with a heaping tablespoon of grass-fed gelatin. Vital Proteins is my go-to brand for quality collagen, that’s unflavored! I got a few questions on Instagram as to why I add gelatin and what gelatin can do for the body.

Benefits of Grass-Fed Gelatin:

·      Improves digestion and can help repair gut lining from leaky gut issues

·      Provides quality protein

·      Supports skin, nails and hair growth

·      Supports the adrenals and hormone balance

·         Helps maintain healthy bones

Ingredients

  • 8oz of filtered water (tap works just fine as well)
  • ½ – ¾ fresh lemon juice
  • 1 heaping tablespoon grass-fed gelatin (optional)

If you don’t have a water kettle, warm water in the microwave for 1 – 2 minutes. You want the water warm, but not boiling. Think tea warm warmth. If using a microwave, squeeze the juice of a lemon into a cup of water then warm. Add gelatin once warm and mix. Enjoy.

LEMON JUICE HACK: Squeeze fresh lemon juice through a strainer and add to ice cube trays. Anytime you want a cup of warm lemon water, pop an ice cube into your cup before warming!

I tend to have my warm lemon water in the morning, after downing a big 32oz glass of water. You could also add this to your evening routine as well.
