Drinking hot water with lemon is nothing new, it detoxifies, boosts the immune system and it’s great for the skin. To maximise these benefits it’s important to take this healthy drink the right way. In some cases people add a slice of lemon to a cup of boiling water, if you are like me and want the maximum benefit’s from anything and everything then this will not get the job done. The small amount of juice released from an unsqueezed slice that’s had it’s vitamins depleted from the scolding water will not garner the results we come to expect from this wondrous elixir. I find the most beneficial way to take this drink is to squeeze a half lemon, or a whole one if you’re feeling brave, add it to a cup half filled with cold water and then simply top it up with water from the kettle. Warm water first thing will activate the digestive system, this combined with the lemon will cleanse your body and get your day off to a great start.
