Natural Lemon Detox

Written by Lee on . Posted in Detox

Lemons are a fantastic detoxifier and have amazing digestive qualities. Drinking lemon juice in water daily is not only a good detoxifier but also alleviates symptoms of indigestion stomach pain and bloating. By drinking lemon juice regularly, the bowels are aided in eliminating waste more efficiently thus controlling constipation and diarrhoea. Lemon also helps the body to obtain the energy from the nutrients in food.

There are many great reasons why lemons should be included in your daily diet. Lemons are high in nutrients and bioflavanoids and are an excellent source of vitamin B6, iron and potassium, and a very good source of dietary fibre and vitamin C. They also contain calcium, copper, folic acid, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus and zinc. Lemon Juice is Anti-Bacterial and particularly good when used as a gargle for sore throats or mouth ulcers. Lemon juice is antiseptic, fighting disease-causing bacteria and also extremely good for the skin as they are a natural exfoliant.


How to make a natural lemon detox drink

Squeeze the juice of half a lemon into a glass of warm water.  Drink twice a day. Preferably upon rising and before meals.  If you are planning on exercising why not stir yourself up something tasty and refreshing. Like a natural lemon electrolyte drink which will keep your body functioning well and balance your hydration.  Just fill your water bottle with purified water, add a teaspoon of sea salt and the juice of a lemon.

    I read your article about natural lemon detox. It sounds very tasteful and healthy. It’s easy to make and good explained. But I have a question. Can lemon juice affect the tooth enamel? Or is the risk decreased because you mix the lemon juice with water?

      There are some reports that it may so if you are worried I would drink through a straw 🙂
