TRY­ING to cut cof­fee out of your morn­ing? A cup of ho hot wa­ter with fresh lemo lemon juice is an ideal alte al­ter­na­tive that many nu nu­tri­tion­ists drink ev ev­ery day — and it’s no not just be­cause of it its tangy fla­vor! Here are four com­pelling re rea­sons to make th this quick con­coc­tion pa part of your morn­ing rit rit­ual.

1.It helps you detox ev­ery day: While lemons may seem quite acidic, they’re a sur­pris­ingly good source of an alkaline food that can help bal­ance your body’s ph; in­ternist and doc­tor of in­te­gra­tive medicine Dr Frank Lip­man is a big pro­po­nent of a hot wa­ter with lemon habit, since the com­bi­na­tion wakes up your liver and flushes out nasty tox­ins.

2.It wakes up your di­ges­tive tract: This sim­ple yet pow­er­ful bev­er­age stim­u­lates your gas­troin­testi­nal tract — im­prov­ing your body’s abil­ity to ab­sorb nu­tri­ents all day and help­ing food pass through your sys­tem with ease. 3.

It sup­ports weight loss: Lemon juice con­tains pectin, a sol­u­ble fi­bre that has been shown to aid in weight-loss strug­gles. And if you’ve been sip­ping on a cup of tea loaded with sugar or honey ev­ery morn­ing, this bev­er­age will slash calo­ries from your daily diet.

4.It soothes an up­set tummy: When you go to bed on a full stom­ach, pesky heart­burn or a bloated belly can get in the way of your morn­ing. Hot wa­ter cleanses your sys­tem, while the flavonoids from lemon juice may help re­duce acid­ity in your stom­ach, so you feel like your­self sooner. — Ya­hoo Health
