Nutritionist and author of ‘Fat Flush for Life’, Ann Louise Gittleman, recommended to replace the habit of drinking coffee with a glass of warm water and lemon mixture in the morning.
This combination has many benefits for the body, including to help you lose weight, stay hydrated throughout the day, increase metabolism and increase your intake of vitamin C, as reported by LIVESTRONG.
Warm water and lemon is a perfect combination for the morning. Water helps the body to remain hydrated. The body will store more fat when you are dehydrated because the kidneys need assistance from the liver to function in those conditions. It can inhibit the liver’s ability to burn fat. Water is also a natural appetite suppressant.
In addition, drinking lemon juice in the morning may stimulate digestion. This in turn will increase the body’s ability to absorb nutrients. Lack of uptake of nutrients can cause you hungry faster, even when you are finished eating.
According to Gittleman, lemon water can also clean the palate. In the body, lemon water also helps to cleanse the kidneys gently. Lemon helps cleanse the lymphatic system, as well as other systems that remove toxins from the body.
Lemon can help reduce cellulite because the fruit can stimulate blood flow to the skin and helps the body to dispose of waste. ”Lemon also increase your body’s ability to metabolize fat,” said Gittleman.
Not only that, the lemon juice provides vitamin C in high amounts. According to the U.S.Department of Agriculture, one lemon to give 30.7 mg of vitamin C. The recommended daily amount for women is 75 mg and 90 mg for men.
People who consume more vitamin C have more efficient digestive system than those with no or little consumption of vitamin C. Lemon also increase the acidity of the digestive system, which helps you better absorb calcium. Absorption of calcium help you lose weight because calcium stored in fat cells. The more calcium in fat cells, it is increasingly easy to stimulate fat burning.
Vitamin C also boosts the immune system, help prevent coronary heart disease and lower the risk of stroke, cataracts and uric acid. According to Oregon State University, this vitamin is also an antioxidant that may help reduce cancer risk when consumed by fresh fruits.
