I don’t know about you, but I drink several cups of coffee a day and although it does help with energy at times and tastes great, it contains caffeine, which is not so great for the body. When a person drinks caffeine, that person should drink twice the water to replace that drink. Water flushes out the system and hydrates amongst its many, many benefits. Many people do not like the taste (or lack there of) of water by itself so they tend to avoid drinking or don’t drink enough on a daily basis. If that’s you try putting a lemon slice or orange or even mint leaves in your water to give it flavor. Since I may not always have these things on hand I will add 1-2 drops of lemon, orange, or grapefruit, even peppermint essential oil to my water to spruce it up! This not only makes it tastes better, it adds many more benefits to that glass of water for your body! Here are some of the benefits of drinking lemon water throughout the day:
- Aids in digestion and detoxification
- Your body receives Vitamin C
- Replenishes skin and helps with body healing
- Helps shed weight
- Boosts energy and mood
If you would like information on essential oils please put a comment with your email and I will get back to you. I use doTERRA essential oils, but there are many brands out there. Not all brands are pure and suitable for intake. BE ADVISED. Keep drinking and stay healthy!
