Fresh Lemon Tea with Mint Leaves in Transparent Cups
Everyone knows the drill. Get up, get your coffee and you are good to go. The first cup of coffee may get you going. Or you might need a few more cups. And then a caffeine crash pays you a visit and you end up just as tired as you were when you woke up. We can all nod our heads in agreement to coffee having amazing health benefits (and being D-E-L-I-C-I-O-U-S). But, hold up. There is a drink that is even better: warm lemon water. Hear me out. Here’s why you should revitalize your morning with a glass of warm lemon water.
1.It can give you an energy boost. Lemon water is packed potassium, calcium, magnesium and several electrolytes which can hydrate your tissues and cleanse the toxins in your body.
2.Lemon water can help you lose weight. Ever heard of pectin fibers? These pectin fibers delay the absorption of glucose in your body and curb hunger cravings. Good news: lemon water is full of them!
3.It helps improve your skin. Lemons are anti-everything that makes pimples and inflammations crowd your skin. While its antioxidants erase wrinkles and blemishes, its anti-inflammatory properties reduce pimples and redness.
4.It helps you focus. Lemons comparatively have a higher negative ion concentration than any other fruit which increases the amount of oxygen entering your brain. This makes you feel more alert and less drowsy.
So, umm, cheers to better mornings, more energy and overall better health!
