With Spring having sprung, it is an ideal time to consider cleansing (aka detoxification)!

Your body and mind naturally feel the need to cleanse as the days finally begin to get longer, as sunlight increases, and as you start to wake up in tandem with the world around you.

An easy and refreshing way to encourage your body to flush out toxins is to consume warm lemon water first thing in the morning.

Pure lemon water acts as a tonic for the liver and pancreas, enhancing toxin elimination and stimulating digestion.

Lemon has many other health promoting qualities too. Among the lovely lemon’s properties, it is:

• Alkalinizing to the body

• High in nutrients such as Vitamin C, Potassium and Vitamin B

• A digestive aid

• A tonic for colds and sore throats

• Strengthening to blood vessels and assistive in circulation

How do you do it? It’s easy!
Freshly squeeze half an organic lemon (don’t want to accumulate any additional toxins from pesticides) into one cup of warm (not hot) spring or pure water.

Sip slowly and wait at least 20 minutes before eating. Enjoy the zest and revving digestive system!
