The Benefits of Warm Lemon Water in the AM

The Benefits of Warm Lemon Water in the AM

You've heard before that lemon water is good for you and maybe you've even had a sippy sippy of your own.  

I recently resumed drinking warm lemon water in the morning because I thought it made me feel good when I'd done it before.  I believe myself and all, but questioning my thoughts led to renewed my curiosity about the proven benefits of warm lemon water. 

So I wandered into nutritionist Alexa Schirm's "Simple Roots Radio" podcast for the rundown. 

Alexa highlighted the following benefits and more: 

  • Aids in digestion  
  • Boosts immunity  
  • Helps flush the system  
  • Is more hydrating than plain water 
  • Warm water is more favorable to your optimal body function unless you're actively trying to cool yourself 
  • Increases metabolism by 30% for over an hour

I also know from my experience that a cup of warm water first thing in the morning helps temper my sugar appetite and makes me feel mindful of what I put into my body next after starting the day drinking all that goodness.  You may find even more / different benefits emerge for you.

I enjoy my lemon water with Meyer lemons as often as possible...juicy, magically delicious, lemon-orange-hybrid creatures that they are.

Before I start getting ready for work, I squeeze about 1/4 of a big lemon (or 1/2 a smaller one) into a mug, select the 6 oz mug option on the Keurig with no pod in so only hot water runs out and voila!  I make sure to drink it up by the time I leave home for the day.  Then I take the same lemon piece and throw it into my water bottle to infuse that ish and keep the party going all day.  Yule!

I hope you feel inspired to get on or keep on with your warm lemon water "kick" and turn it into a habit.
