Lemon Water

Major Benefits of Lemon Water in the Morning!

It's so simple, but packs a punch! Just squeezing half a lemon into some warm water and drinking it in the morning does a number of beneficial things for your body. Some of the best things are so simple.*

Benefits:

  1. Natural Energizer - This hydrates and provides nutrients to your body that you probably don't get with that bowl of cereal you eat in the morning, or that muffin, and definitely not when you skip eating anything! It'll give you a great jumpstart to your day!*
  2. Flushes out unwanted materials - The body cleanses at night when we sleep. Our organs keep working, processing everything, and trying to move things along. When we drink lemon water, this aids in flushing all this out as well as hydrating and fueling the organs, which will help everything perform better.*
  3. Balances pH levels - It is an easy solution to helping your pH level in your body. You can simply eat more fruits and vegetables to make your body more alkaline. That'll do it. This is simply part of that.*
  4. Aids in weight loss - With the flushing action that this combination provides, this also aids the body's own natural slimming action.*
  5. Boosts immune system - Lemons pack a ton of Vitamin C. That's one of the best things we can put in our bodies. So, to start the day off getting a lot of Vitamin C is so powerful for an energizing day, as well as to help boost and empower our immune system.*
  6. Beneficial for skin - We're made up of mostly water. What happens to a plant that doesn't get any water?! It dries up! So do we if we don't hydrate. This is vitally important to maintain good elasticity and for the skin to stay youthful and healthy.*
  7. Aids digestion - The digestive tract is a fluid channel. It moves all our nutrients along, as well as our waste. Part of all this is the section in the middle with our stomach and intestines. Lemon water will go in and hydrate, lubricate, get things moving along, and be a spark to helping our digestive system function properly.*

Start making it a habit when you wake up. Get to the kitchen, heat up a glass of water, squeeze half a lemon in it, sit down, drink, and get ready to take on the day!

Digest Right!

Digestion is really important stuff! It's what our body does to break down food so it can move through our intestinal tract (stomach, small intestine and colon). Sometimes the body has difficulty doing this and needs some help or a change in lifestyle. If you don't think so, just think back to any time you've been bloated, constipated, had diarrhea, acid reflux (heart burn), felt compacted, or couldn't go to the bathroom well. Having second thoughts now?! Yep. Those are all things going on in the intestinal tract.*

Knowing that, you can do some little things that can go a long way for your comfort and health to ensure you have a good day, everyday* :)

1 - Good Diet

The first thing would be to eat well. And you might be saying, "Okay. Well, what does that mean?! Easier said than done, because there's a lot of diets out there!" I hear you loud and clear. We have been around lots of diets over the years, and they all come and go, but one thing remains the same - we all basically have the same organs, have to eat food to survive, and go to the bathroom. It's the body's way of living well. Taking in the good and pushing out the bad, through an assembly line of organs. All of which have a specific job or more. The more we can eat in a way that supports these functions and not create difficult situations, the better we'll be.*

The two diet recommendations we've seen that are the most effective and simply makes sense are*:

  • Food combining properly
  • Eat according to your blood type

People can see benefit with either one of these, but we've noticed they work best together!* CLICK HERE if you'd like to find out more on these two concepts or view our book "Guide to Smart Food Choices."

2 - Enzymes & Probiotics!

Yes! Our bodies produce these naturally, but it's a great idea to supply more to our body, because this will only help the body digest our processed, organic or not, everyday foods. And the probiotics will help support the good bacteria in the body and support a good immune system! All positive points there.*

Together, enzyme supplements and probiotic supplements help support a balanced digestive system and a healthier you.*

3 - Go to the Bathroom!!

Very important this one. Most of the world is uncomfortable talking about this subject, but not us! Let's go over this.

Poop, fecal matter, feces, waste - it's poisons and toxins - bad stuff. You don't want poisons nor toxins in your body. It was food that we ate, and then the body took all the nutrients out of it to get energy and survive, then it transformed it into what you see in the bathroom. The body has no use for it anymore, so it gets rid of it.*

When we don't get it out, all that waste stays in our body, mostly the colon (large intestine) and as a result of it staying in there our body can absorb the toxins from our colon. As you can imagine, that would not be a good thing.*

So, what do I do? Well, the 2 points stated above (good diet, enzymes & probiotics) will help this situation. You can also incorporate drinking more water (we recommend a gallon every day), but sometimes the body needs extra help in performing this natural action. You could get different herbs from the store that you can either eat naturally, get them in some form like liquid or powder, or simply get a supplement that has them. Ones that are known to help regularity are cascara sagrada, senna, psyllium, aloe vera, barberry, slippery elm, rhubarb and others.*

We offer a colon cleanser that has all these and is our most popular product - Colon Magic. It's a safe, gentle, effective, non-habit-forming, herbal formula to help cleanse, feed, stimulate, and rebuild the tissue and muscles of the stomach, small intestine, colon and gastrointestinal tract.*

 

Whatever way you incorporate these 3 principles, great! We want you to have healthy success!
