Drinking a single glass of lemon water per day is one of the easiest and fastest ways to balance your pH levels and live a more alkaline life! That might surprise you, as the thought of freshly squeezed lemon juice, arouses thoughts of acidic, sour tasting juice to many people. Lemons are acidic, but upon entering the body morph into one of the most powerful alkaline sources available. All foods react differently once inside the 100 trillion cells that makes up our body.

 

If I’ve learned one thing about health or Super Immunity, it’s to not fight your body. Your body speaks to you every day and has been training for hundreds of thousands of years to carry you to a life of long lasting health – just listen and give it what it wants.

 

So to clarify, lemons are not alkaline in their natural fruit form, but once ingested and absorbed they become alkalizing!

 

While there are hundreds of alkaline foods you can easily consume, few are as easy, cheap and beneficial as lemons.

 

2 Factors that Make Lemon Water Perfect for Alkalization

 

Lemons have extremely low sugar content. Lemons have a high alkaline mineral content, thus making the effect on the body significant and immediate.

4 Quick Benefits of Drinking Lemon Water Daily

 

  • Flu season is upon us and hot lemon water has offered relief from cold and flu symptoms for generations.
  • Lemons are an antiseptic (an adjective that describes the state of being clean and without disease-causing bacteria)

The next time you go to the hospital after being attacked by a local raccoon, the nurse will apply an antiseptic to the wound, killing any bacteria. Drinking lemon water has that same effect on your gut, rinsing it clean of any unwanted bacteria.

  • Lemons and lemon juice are a natural diuretic

Anything diuretic helps increase urine flow to achieve adequate water balance, while cleansing the kidneys. Lemon juice has even been known to dissolve kidney stones! Guys you might want to make a mental note of that last fact.

Kidney stones are nothing more than uric acid deposits. Lemon juice helps dissolve uric acid and other toxins. Uric acid deposits, become crystallized, and cause inflammation, swelling, and pain.

  • Digestive enzymes are produced in the stomach after drinking lemon juice.

The more active digestive enzymes you have the better your nutrient absorption levels will be. A Healthy gut is critical to Super Immunity and ensures you receive all the benefits of eating and living healthily.

All in all, drinking lemon water is a potent super immunity weapon, great for anyone hoping to improve their health, balance their pH levels and live a more alkaline existence. I can’t think of an easier, faster way to immediately get alkaline than by drinking a large glass of lemon water in the morning. What a way to start the day!
