Lemon Water: Our Secret Weapon for a Healthy, Happy Gut

February 5, 2015

It’s no secret that proper hydration is key to living in a healthy, happy body. Water nourishes our cells, supports our internal systems in detoxification, and alleviates things like fatigue and headaches. It can help brighten our complexions, promote weight loss, and boost our moods.

Talk about a miracle-worker!

When we consider that our bodies are 70% water, it makes total sense.

If you’re like us over at Parsley and want to take your hydration to an even more optimal level, we’ve got a super tip for you.

Drink warm water with lemon first thing in the morning.

Why warm water?

Well, our digestive system is warm and functions at it’s best that way. Cold water puts out the “digestive fire” so-to-speak. Warm water supports it by being a more comfortable temperature.

What about the lemon?

We love lemon! Not only does this refreshing citrus add a touch of flavor, it’s also great for alkalizing the body. That means it’s instrumental in reducing inflammation . It also helps keep things moving through the digestive system—picking up any debris or gunk that is left behind.

Overall, this combo keeps things clean and fresh. It’s the perfect way to support your body first thing in the morning!
