So to kickstart our small changes plan Milena brings you 7 small edits you can make to your life starting today.
Top of my list for health changing habits is … Start Your Day With A Glass Of Lemon Water
It’s a great source of vitamin C.
Lemons are high in vitamin C, which is great for giving our body the immune boost it needs to stay in check. When vitamin C levels are low, little to no repair happens in the body. They are also full of antioxidants which stimulates the brain and nerve function helping to reduce free radicals, increases red blood cell production and controls blood pressure.
It balances pH levels.
Lemon juice is one of the most alkaline foods around and in our quest for health we need to add as many alkaline foods to our diet as possible. When our body enters a more acidic state, it breeds sickness and disease.
Processed & high sugar foods make our blood more acidic so by adding more alkaline foods your whole body starts to wake up, repair, fight, and become a power-house of healing and rejuvenating.
It improves digestion.
Lemon juice is great to help flush out unwanted materials and encourages the production of bile in your body. This helps to soothe and normalize the body’s digestive process. Lemon juice not only encourages healthy digestion by loosening toxins in your digestive tract, but it also helps to relieve symptoms of indigestion such as heartburn, burping and bloating.
It aids weight loss.
Lemons contain pectin fibre, which assists in fighting hunger cravings. So next time you feel like grabbing a sweet treat, try downing a glass of lemon water first.
It helps you kick the coffee habit.
By replacing just one of your cups of coffee in the day with lemon water, it can help keep away that mid-day slump.
