Starting your Day with Hot Lemon Water

pathmedical Nutrition

Are you sick of drinking coffee every morning before work? Is tea too acidic for your stomach? A great energizing replacement for both coffee and tea is a nice refreshing glass of hot lemon water! If consumed in the morning hours, lemon water can aid digestion throughout the day, which could increase the probability of weight loss. This type of weight loss is caused by the body’s increase in temperature, which kick-starts your metabolism. Additionally, your appetite may become slightly suppressed. The citric acid found in lemons is less harsh than the acid found in some teas. This is beneficial because the acid in teas can greatly off balance your stomach causing both pain and discomfort.  

Additional benefits and nutritious elements:

  • Hydration
  • Quality of skim
  • Fresher breath
  • Strengthen the immune system
  • Enzymes (aids liver functions and waste elimination)
  • Vitamin C (an antioxidant that counteracts free radicals)
  • Flavonoids (antioxidant properties)
  • Potassium (aids cardiovascular health by lowering blood pressure)

For those who switch from coffee or tea to lemon water, an obvious benefit would be a decrease in teeth stains as well. For those who are naturally anxious and don’t necessarily need the extra adrenaline boost that caffeine provides, lemon water provides a more natural, toned down solution. If you are interested in beverages with more flavors, you can add a variety of ingredients, such as honey, to spice it up. If you are looking for a chilled version of this drink, especially later on in the day, grab a pitcher and REALLY spice it up.

Additional ingredient ideas:

  • Cucumber
  • Mint
  • Cayenne pepper
  • Ginger
