When you wake up in the morning, juice half a lemon or a lime, add the juice to 2 cups of water, and drink it down. Then wait 30 minutes before eating or drinking anything else to allow the kidneys to eliminate..
Why are thousands of people starting their day with lemon/lime water?
Here are just a few of the reasons.
The roots of lemon and lime trees go deep into the earth extracting dozens of precious trace minerals and mineral salts that get passed on when you consume them. This is especially helpful if you suffer from fatigue because the mineral salts in lemons and limes nourish the adrenal glands, and the adrenals are responsible for regulating the body’s energy levels.
The adrenals are also responsible for telling the pancreas to produce insulin when blood sugar levels are high and telling the liver to release glucose from its glycogen stores when blood sugar is low. So drinking lemon/lime water also contributes to healthy blood sugar levels.
The precious trace minerals in lemons and limes are also soothing and nourishing to the nervous system. If you have difficulty sleeping, a cup of warm water with raw honey and lemon or lime juice squeezed into it can calm busy electrical impulses and neurotransmitters, aiding in a restful sleep.
Lemon/lime water is ultra-hydrating and electrolyte producing. It actually goes into the cells and tissues drawing out the waste. This makes it very effective at alkalizing the body. Lemon/lime water is more effective than plain water at flushing the kidneys and helping them excrete waste. The liver cleans the blood during the night, sending waste to the kidneys for excretion. When we awaken, the kidneys have a load to dump. If the kidneys are not flushed out, the toxins will redeposit in the body. Getting the kidneys properly flushed in the morning is fundamental to good health, energy, and vitality.
If you are experiencing Long-Covid symptoms, starting your day with lemon/lime water can help flush out the toxins faster and speed your recovery. If you are not well and really want to give your health a boost, try drinking 2, 16 ounce glasses of lemon/lime water first thing in the morning or one in the morning and one at night.
Starting your day with lemon/lime water has a host of benefits including:
healthy blood sugar levels
speeding your recovery from Long-Covid or any illness
So grab a glass of lemon/lime water, and drink to good health!
