When life gives you lemons...

What do I do when life gives me lemons? Start every morning with lemon water!

Lemons are truly a gift from nature. Below is a breakdown of some of the benefits that come from adding lemon juice to your water each morning.

Digestion & Detox

The live enzymes in lemon juice mimic those present in the gut, boosting bile production and overall liver function to help rid the body if toxins. Lemon juice also promotes a slower absorption period, stabilizing insulin / blood sugar levels, and allowing you to get the most nutrients out of the food you put into your body. Lemon juice also contains pectin - an enzyme enabling the body to feel full for longer so you need less food to keep you sustained.


Drinking lemon juice nourishes the body with a stable dose of vitamin C. This kick starts your immune system by enhancing the production if white blood cells {your bodies main line of defense against general pathogens}. Vitamin C also has antioxidant activity, scavenging free radicals and repairing damage. Because we do not produce this on our own, it is critical for our health to ensure we have vitamin C in our diet.


The negative ions found in lemon juice enhances energy levels naturally, without the crash {and acidity} that comes with drinking coffee.

Skin & Body

Because of the detoxifying properties in lemon juice, your skin will also benefit! Your skin is the largest elimination organ of your body. When the body is unable to release toxins through the excretory system, it appears as acne. By flushing toxins via the liver and excretory tracts, they will not have to exit the body through the skin, leading to a clearer completion. The vitamin C in lemon juice also promotes collagen production in the skin, aiding to smooth out lines and wrinkles, and maintain skin elasticity.
