An American woman, Crystal Davis, became a worldwide hit when she shared with warm water with lemon and honey experience with the world. After a year, Crystal was pleasantly surprised. She says that when she had a flu she always used to buy lemon and honey drinks from the pharmacies. As most, she was skeptical at first, but claims they were helpful. However, it’s not the same as drinking fresh lemon juice – it’s much healthier than the powdered one.
Thus, she decided to drink warm water with honey and lemon for a year, every morning on an empty stomach. She just wanted to know if the well-know “recipe” is as healthy as people said it was. Throughout the entire year she hadn’t had a flu or any other diseases. Crystal says that even if she caught something, the symptoms weren’t as strong as before. She adds that she also became a morning person who doesn’t need coffee to feel energetic, while before started drinking water with lemon and water she needed an hour to actually wake up.
When it comes to how she drinks it, she says that she uses a teaspoon of organic honey and half a fresh lemon in a classic cup. First, you need to boil the water and let it cool a bit, then add lemon juice and honey. If the lemon is too sour, you can add some extra honey. In addition, you don’t have to add half a lemon if it’s too much for you.
This drink is quite healthy and offer various health benefits. Here are the main ones:
- Improves the quality of your skin
- Lemon stimulates the production of new red blood cells, cleans the blood and is excellent for your skin as it accelerates the production of collagen that improves its elasticity.
- Boosts digestion
Bile helps the body absorbs all the nutrients and break down food better and lemon stimulates its production. Honey, as a powerful antibacterial agent, prevents infections and destroys bacteria, while detoxifying the body.
This beverage will keep the colon running smoothly, boost your digestion, and prevent numerous digestive problems. As mentioned before, it will help your body get rid of the toxins and clean the urinary tract.
A cup of warm water with honey and lemon is an excellent way to start off the day.
