I was at the dentist recently and the hygienist was informing me she could tell that my mouth was a tad bit acidic. This got me thinking — if my mouth is acidic, my body must be as well. I know that too much acid in the body can lead to a number of health issues, so I did what most would and started searching the web for a natural way to restore some alkalinity in my body.
Upon my research, I found that lemon water both restores alkalinity AND has a ridiculous amount of health benefits. I like to think of myself as pretty smart when it comes to putting good things into (and on) my body, but I honestly had no idea that something as simple as this could provide so many benefits. The benefits come from drinking the lemon water at room temp. Lately, I have been bringing a whole lemon with me to work. I’ll cut it up and add fresh slices throughout the day.
What are your thoughts? Love lemon water? Hate it?
Not a fan of lemon water? Greens from It Works! also aids in alkalinity restoration… not to mention, it provides your daily serving of fruits and veggies.
