Are you looking for an easy way to improve your overall health? Then you need look no further than warm water with lemon!
1 cup Lukewarm (not hot) water
1/2 of a fresh lemon (Organic if possible, not bottled lemon juice)

Lemons have strong antibacterial, antiviral, and immune-boosting powers because they’re packed with vitamins B and C, calcium, iron, magnesium, potassium, enzymes, antioxidants, and fibers.
Promote Better Digestion: Lemon juice flushes out unwanted materials and toxins from the body. Its atomic composition is similar to saliva and the hydrochloric acid of digestive juices. It encourages the liver to produce bile which is an acid that is required for digestion.
Cleanse Fluids From Your System: Lemon juice helps flush out unwanted materials in part because lemons increase the rate of urination in the body.
Balance Your pH Levels: While they are acidic on their own, lemons are one of the most alkalizing foods for the body. Diseases occur when the body pH is acidic (cancers love acidic environments). Drinking lemon water regularly can help reduce overall acidity in the body, including uric acid in the joints, which is one of the primary causes of pain and inflammation.
Clear Up Your Skin: The vitamin C component as well as other antioxidants helps decrease wrinkles and blemishes and it helps to combat free radical damage. It can actually be applied directly to scars or age spots to help reduce their appearance.
Energize and Enhance Your Mood: The energy a human receives from your food comes from the atoms and molecules in it. Lemon is one of the few foods that contain more negatively-charged ions, providing your body with more energy when it enters the digestive tract.
Promote Healing: The potassium of lemons promotes wound healing, and is an essential nutrient in the maintenance of healthy bones, connective tissue, and cartilage.
Hydrate Your Lymphatic System When your body is deprived of water, you can definitely feel the side effects, which include: feeling tired, sluggish, constipation, lack of energy, low/high blood pressure, lack of sleep, lack of mental clarity and feeling stressed, just to name a few.
Aid In Your Weight Loss: Lemons are high in pectin fiber, which helps fight hunger cravings. Studies have shown people who maintain a more alkaline diet lose weight faster.
Boost Your Brain Power: The high levels of potassium and magnesium show beneficial effects on our brain and nerve health. Lemon water can give you the boost you need to fight depression and stress.
